Domino Effect

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

I have to be honest and say I have had this Beth Ditto Domino Dress since it was first released and have NEVER worn it out! I love it so much but when I got it I was not as happy with my body even though I was much thinner then. I did not have the confidence to wear it as it showed all my lumps and bumps and even with one of those horrible "sausage bags" body stocking tight things under it I did not have the confidence so it sat in my wardrobe for years.

It is much tighter on me now and has a full on VBO (Visible Belly Outline) of my DB (Double Belly) but you can't deny this dress is a statement and my statement is I love my body the way it is and I will not save clothes anymore for when I "lose weight". If something is too small I give it away or sell it or take it to a Clothes Swap (NOTE: I am organizing one in Leeds from January! More Details later!)

Keeping clothes that don't fit you does not help you accept your body. If something is a little tight but wearable then WEAR IT! I no longer keep clothes for "Special" I wear what I want when I feel like it. If I feel fancy then I dress fancy. When I am in a not so happy mood I will wear something cheery to make me feel sexy. Make the effort to look awesome and the Domino effect will be that you feel awesome in most cases.

    I bought this dress too, back then, but I wasn't brave enough yet to actually wear it, so I sold it again. I still regret this. :/
