Changing My Ways
I don't know who this lovely lady is, but isn't she gorgeous? I picked up her image from www.ehow.com, on how to dress a curvy figure. First of all, you guys all know I'm a sucker for red. But look at her confidence! Look at her pose. She is not apologizing for who she is. She is fabulous!
Slowly, but surely, I am doing this for myself. I am almost entirely all dresses and skirts now. My two pairs of Lane Bryant slacks are lonely and perhaps dusty in my closet. (note to self...dust this weekend.) At first, it felt odd, because I was never much of a girly girl growing up. But now, it comes naturally, after a few months of me working on it. I own...gasp...7 knee length dresses, and one maxi-length (that's the floor length dresses.) I have about five skirts. I'd have four more if I'd ever pull my sewing machine out and fix the ones that are ripped. Everyone around me has noticed the change. My children's friends smile and say I look pretty. I'm generally asked "why are you so dressed up?" Someone even asked me if I was a Mormon!
I don't take my picture regularly, not because I'm scared of the camera, but because it doesn't occur to me. I think I might start posting my picture on here, maybe not daily, but a few times a week. I'm enjoying my new found feminity, just as God created me to be.
