Certainly in the past year I’ve gotten more comfortable with certain things I used to be horrified about – a little shorter hemlines, shorter sleeves, seeing myself in photographs. But this dress was a Big Leap for me. It’s WAY shorter than I’m comfortable with. I would never wear this length to work, but I *would* wear it down to the Beach Hut in the evenings with friends (on a non-windy day!).
This dress is SHORT. My legs are FAT. I am a BRAVE m_____ f_____. I feel brave. And kinda cute.
I ran into a store after the shoot. In PUBLIC. In the short dress. With my fat legs. Yup.
It felt good to be not so covered up.
On a twirlability scale of 1-10, this dress is only a 2. But I had to try.
The dress is going back to Gwynnie Bee tomorrow. But I’m glad I didn’t just stick it back in the blue bag to return. I glad I wore it Out in the World.
