In the dressing room (pics!)

Friday, January 25, 2013

My sister has an art exhibition coming up in a few weeks and I wanted to buy a new dress for the opening party. I wanted a dress with long sleeves (I'm really insecure about my arms) and today I found one that was really pretty and cheap, too! Now, I should probably point out that this is not a dress I would normally wear or even try on, it's way more revealing than any of the dresses I own. I still wonder whether or not I made the right decision buying it but I figured that since it's pretty low-cut at the front I could always wear a black top underneath to make it less revealing... I'm not comfortable with showing off my cleavage! Haha. I was kind of wondering whether or not I should even post these pictures here and I still feel very insecure about it but I wanted to share them nonetheless because this was probably the first time I felt 100 % beautiful and sexy in a dressing room. That doesn't happen very often!! Usually there's something wrong, I don't like the way the clothes fit or I see flaws when I look at my reflection (which is sad and something I am working on!). There was a time when I dreaded looking at myself in the mirror. But not this time! And as a celebration of that, I am sharing these pictures with you. Even though I'm not at my goal weight yet and despite all my insecurities, today, for a moment in that dressing room, I loved every part of my body. And that's pretty remarkable!

    Firstly, girl, you look HOT!!!

Secondly, I hope you exposed that cleavage! You deserve it! It may not be something you do on a regular basis, but the dress doesn't make you look slutty and it purely makes you look sexy/attractive. There is a difference and that dress makes your chest look amazing!!

Thirdly, WAY TO GO on posting the pictures even if you were uncomfortable. That's a HUGE accomplishment!!

    Be still my beating heart. ;-) The only problem that is going to happen is that NO one at the art exhibit will be looking at the art. They will be too busy looking at you sweetie. You look fabulous, enjoy it, you've earned it. Keep the faith

    Thanks so much for sharing the pics! You look incredible! I am glad that your brain is allowing you to see how beautiful you are without picking it apart - I swear we are our own worst critics. I don't think you need to hide the cleavage - if you got it, flaunt it baby! LOL. Have a great time at your sis's art opening. emoticon
