I went to a communion over the weekend and a couple of days before it, I was just stumped. I couldn't seem to find the right kind of dress for the occasion or one that I thought was appropriate. So as always I waited the last minute to make my move. When I walked into the mall I figured since J.C. Penney's has always been the place that never failed me why not go to it now. When I walked in I saw nothing I liked until I saw this gorgeous coral/salmon/orange color dress . Honestly, when I first looked at it I thought...DAMN!!!! that's kind of bright. But you know what, it was just too good to pass up. It was perfect it wasn't too revealing, the cut is cute and it was comfortable. Plus it didn't emphasis on my negative features (which makes it a winner). The fabric is just amazing within itself....I think it's a damask kind of fabric, but , I am not completely sure. It has a design imprint on it that makes it very interesting and fun. I absolutely love this dress. It's not a dress I would typically wear but it makes a powerful statement. Like I am here LOOK AT ME!!! and you know what it felt good.
It seems like I have accepted my size and I like not having to fulfill dumb expectations. I might look better thin, but I am beautiful now. And the present is all we got. And now that I have a new and awesome sewing instructor (Marie) I can finally start making the garments I dreamed about. I have seen this woman for only a month and I got about 3 projects done. And she is so nice, encouraging and thoughtful. She doesn't yell at me or make me feel like I am waisting my time, energy or money. I have to say when you meet the right people with the right attitude it makes all the difference in the world. And it's a true blessing.
Now all I have to do is get the canary yellow and cobalt blue dress and I am ready...for summer!
