It's alarming how charming I feel! (first dress in 20 yrs!)
Saturday, March 23, 2013
This is the first dress I've worn in over 20 years! Lots of reasons... Main one is shoes, I guess. My right foot still swells and I have large feet, so wearing shoes is still a huge problem for me. If you are wearing clunky mens shoes, dresses just don't quite look pretty... so, don't wear them. Another reason is the "chafing" that goes on... I KNOW you know what I mean (many of you are reading this with weight loss struggles of your own, so I KNOW you understand)... and well, that certainly is the least fun thing for anyone to experience... so, pretty much... 'nuff said.
This maxi dress is definitely within my comfort zone... I love the colors and I love the length. Before you ask... yes, I'm wearing some tight capri's underneath to make me feel better and confident... I may never get over that chafing worry. Question for those who have gotten over that... How did you? LOL
As for the shoes... I'm still working on that... I have a pair of slides and my foot was still visibly swollen, so that's still a concern of mine. I may not be wearing dresses ALOT, but hopefully, as I lose the rest of the weight, maybe some of that swelling will dissipate as well? I pray that it will.
So, needless to say, I feel pretty today. Oh so pretty! I feel pretty and witty and gay! And I pity any girl who isn't me today. (just kidding!) ;-)
