Chunky

I got the dress. The good news is, it zipped. Where do I begin with the bad news? The dress is a simple, floor length, strapless gown. On the hanger it's a pretty dress. On me it's all wrong. I do not look good in strapless gowns at all. There's just way too much white space going on in the upper regions. I have somewhat broad shoulders and I'm totally pasty and so the dress stops and then you're blinded by the light that is my pale self. It does come with spaghetti straps, which I do have permission to attach, and also a wrap which I just might have to use. I'll make it work. I'm concerned about how it's going to fit even if I lose a few pounds. I think that the waist will look better but then I don't even come close to filling out the bust. I might have to make a trip to VS to find a decent, enhancing, strapless bra. A good amount of cleavage would undoubtedly help out with the strapless dilemma. I'll work it out. I have faith!

One thing I need to do is get my hair cut. I have let it grow to extreme lengths and it's just long and flat and ratty. There's no question I need help in the hair department, not just the cut, but styling as well. I don't know how to use product, or dry it properly, and I have such nice hair but it never looks as good as it could because I'm just clueless. I need Stacy London's help in the worst way. I wish she would just show up at my work one day and whisk me away to New York for a total makeover. Including one of those $5,000 credit cards that they give away on What Not to Wear. I've seriously considered making my own little video for submission but I think that's against the rules. My cousin said she thinks I dress too well to be picked for that show... I totally beg to differ. Have you seen my closet lately? Today's outfit itself is enough to get me thrown directly into fashion prison. Ancient GAP cropped jeans with an ill-fitting, diagonal striped t-shirt, and blue Old Navy flops. Seriously, it's horrible. I am a young professional in Boston, I should look the part! Because I pay so much money each month towards my credit cards, I don't have much cash flow available for spending on myself and therefore I get neglected. I am about to start fixing that right away, now that the wedding obligations of the past two years are paid off! I've spent over $2,000 in the past two years on other peoples weddings. Imagine all the clothes and shoes I could've bought with that money! It's my turn now folks. This weekend is all about me, it's the first full weekend I've had off in I can't even tell you how long.

Which reminds me... IT'S FRIDAY!!!

sorry about the dress! That is how I felt about the dress I wore in June - ugh!! I hear you on Stacy London - I could use a wardrobe overhaul too ;)

I guess that's just one of the trials and tribs of being a bridesmaid. You just have to suck it up, it's only one day!!
