This dainty black lace maxi skirt has actually been waiting to be worn for almost a year now. I had been planning to wear it out ever since I bought it, but somehow things just got on top of it and I forgot. Does that mean I should stop shopping and then dumping clothes in the back of my closet? Probably
Would you believe I got a double thumbs-up when I wore this out last Sunday? A girl actually caught my eye, pointed up and down the outfit and with a huge smile, gave me a double thumbs-up. Double, you guys!!! I think this calls for a celebration. For a girl whose wardrobe used to consist only of loose tops and baggy pants, and even begged a bride to have all her bridesmaids wear long dresses so she doesn't have to show her legs, this is quite a feat. So if you think you're a big girl and therefore cannot possibly show your limbs without getting stared or laughed at, change your perception! When you start accepting you for you, you find that others will too. (O, that rhymes!)
Couldn't have gotten this far on my journey to self-love and size acceptance without your support! Seriously, I couldn't have done it without you.
I think an occasional pat on the back AND a giveaway is in order. What say you?
