In my own skin
I’ve never made weight the center of my blog, and frankly it never will be. But I will admit that I turned away from wearing more form fitting clothes, and this also got me away from a lot of vintage clothes. I felt a little self conscious about wearing anything that was too tight. I’m quite curvy – but as I get older, I’m growing more comfortable in my own skin. Curves and all. I’m not a model, I’m just a normal woman.
This vintage dress has hung in the farthest corner of my closet for many, many, months. I’ve stared at it quite a few times wondering if it was finally time for it to go. But as I zipped it on, I could remember why I loved it so much to begin with. It now has me dreaming of finding more Mad Men inspired dresses that accentuate my curves.
Dress: Vintage thrifted. Heels: Dries van Noten from Nordstrom Rack. Necklace: Forever 21.
Oh, and don’t mind those two photographs of me on the fireplace. I like to call those things that are supposed to be hanging but never seem to make their way to the wall.
