Here’s a dress that was perfect on paper for nights out but just didn’t work for me in reality.
1) It flattered my tummy 🤰🏻
2) It was above the knee
3) It was strappy
4) It had a low neck 🍈🍈
5) Very cool print 👻
1) It was actually too big on the bodice even laced at its tightest so it felt like it was wearing me!
2) The neckline managed to bury any hint of cleavage (quite a feat!) 🙅🏻♀️
3) The thick skirt sat stiffly on my knees, so I’d have preferred flirty, black netting that length instead. Cyndi Lauper/Gwen Stefani style
4) The grey tone drained all of the colour out of me 🧟♀️
I actually felt pressured to wear it because I’d been told that I looked ‘classy’ and ‘grown up’ and ‘so fancy!’ and I’d been looking for a dress so long. But as soon as my Bloke saw me in it he said “Great dress but it’s not you is?” “No it’s really not!” I was so relieved he’d recognised that.
Always trust your instincts, and wear what makes you feel, like your most confident and true self. Never feel that you have to do it justice. Return it, gift it, donate it to charity, sell it on Poshmark, just don’t put up with it!
