How is everyone's day going so far? We're still dealing with a lot of wind, but no snow or rain so I'm happy. Tonight D is taking me out for my "I'm still under 30" birthday, and I'm looking forward to some famous white pizza.
Today I'm wearing another small print dress. Yesterday's anonymous commenter said that they make me look "2x fatter", among other things. It's the first truly negative comment I've received on the blog so far, and I'm sure it won't be the last. And you know what? I don't care quite as much as I thought I would about it. It's taken me a very long time to come around to this way of thinking, but it really is a revolutionary thought: I dress for myself. I wear clothes that make me feel good. If other people think they look good on me, then great. I appreciate all of the lovely comments people have left on here. If they don't like my clothing choices, well, that's just too bad. If you have constructive criticism, I'm all ears. But I am a fat, pale, broad-foreheaded lady (how's that for bad grammar?), and I'm not trying to hide anything. Do I wear things that I find flattering? Absolutely. But I'm not going to avoid small prints, get bangs, and wear lipstick all for the sake of "looking thinner". That's not what I'm going for. My goal is to feel good about the way I dress my body at whatever shape or size it is, not with the ultimate goal of looking thinner.
Anyway, how about some details? Happy Tuesday!
