Have you ever ordered a dress for a party, imagining just how nice you’re going to look…and then it arrives and…well…you try it on. Insert sad face emoticon when you realise that the size six model showing off the dress in the video catalogue probably has perky breasts, has never fed a child from her body (let alone four!) and probably wouldn’t know what child birth entails! Yes, unfortunately that’s me looking in the mirror imagining I’m still twenty-something and capable of pulling off sexy. But, persistence pays off…or does it?
When do you face your body’s limitations on fashion?
I refuse to believe I have to dress like a mature lady and still prance around in floaty dresses with leggings and boots. Probably not the most appropriate style for school but it’s soooo comfortable, I’m not ready to let that style go. Now, to address my tiring attempt to look sexy. What am I going to do? I have a very important party to attend and I want to look good not only for my family but for myself. Is it worth pulling out the secret supports or should I just go in a normal floaty number? I want to look good and I want to wear this beauty, but am I punching above my weight?
What would you do? Again I would like to point out that gents know the feeling with their favourite outfits. Does comfort out-weigh style and looking good?
