Should be demolished. Banned. Wiped from existence.
Or, at least re-designed.
Got my LBD this morning. It’s a lovely, timeless dress. One size too tight over the bust, good over the hips. Bigger size perfect over the bust, too loose over the hips. Now I will have to see if it will make a difference if I try and take it in, or wear it as is.
At times like these that I miss my gran. She could make the loveliest outfits from scratch – no pattern, just the way I designed it.
But to get back to the fitting room. Horrible I tell you!!! Horrible!!!!
Every bulge and roll and mark – clearly shown. No hidden softness, no hiding behind soft lights. Every, single fault clearly shown. Perfectly illuminated by the glaring overhead lights. Nowhere to hide. Horrible.
No wonder I hardly ever shop for clothes, and when I do it’s usually men’s shorts and shirts – big sizes for me to hide in. It’s been a good 3 years since I shopped for any kind of female clothes, and even then I get the size I should be and fit them at home. Hardly ever in a fitting room.
And now i know why!
It’s enough to make you doubt your femininity. If you look at yourself in those mirrors, you will never believe ANY man will want to see you naked, ever again!! How can you be a sexy, confident being after seeing what you really look like under those lights? Since that’s what you really look like.
You can’t hide anything.
I think I’ll leave off shopping for another few years. Or probably forever. Or until I find a sugar daddy that will pay to make me svelthe 😉 Or maybe never. I think never is a good time 😉
Mom’s here now – will see if I can make some kind of headway with the gifts for Christmas.
have a happy Saturday!!
