Outfit: Romance Is In The Air


This dress just arrived in the mail giving me another excuse to dress up this week. While wearing it I found myself telling Thomas, "I wish I had dressed more like this in high school." On one hand I have few regrets for my self-conscious, bland style of dressing when I was younger because in the end all those experiences and choices have led to me being who I am today. And I'm usually pretty happy with who I am now. Besides I didn't really have disposable income at that age! Still sometimes I wonder how much more enjoyable my high school years would have been if I had been a less shy, bundle of nerves! Dressing up for me is a nice reminder of how much insecurity I've overcome. I can accept stares at my outlandish clothing (or occasionally odd colored hair!) not because I enjoy the attention, but because I've reached the point that wearing what makes me happy is more important than what other people think. I'm more comfortable at shrugging off negative attention and better at accepting compliments. Although the latter is still likely to make me blush!

Absolutely gorgeous photos! This looks like something form a fairytale. I love the one where the camera is looking down on you - you're like a princess in a garden, waiting for her true love.
It can be so hard to be a shy person who loves fashion, because people tend to assume that if you're wearing something interesting or exceptional, you must be very outgoing. I'm trying to get better at accepting compliments myself. A woman once told me, when I undercut a compliment that she had given me, that I was being very rude and implying that she had bad taste! Now I try to just say thank you.

Absolutely! I was too scared of what other people thought of me in high school or middle school. I kept my somewhat esoteric taste in fashion behind clothed (I mean closed) doors!

What a fairy tale-like dress!
