March Photo Challenge 7: Something You Wore

This Something I Wore is the something that I wore as a bridesmaid's dress approximately eleventy years ago.  I know, it seems a little strappy, but I could get away with that back before I got my bat-wing arms.  Of course, I THOUGHT I had bat-wing arms back then, too, because I'm dumb and I don't know what I look like.  Which is sort of my point in taking this photo: although the top of this ensemble is a size 4 and the skirt is a size 6 (because I'm built upside-down like that), I nevertheless remember feeling a little insecure on my bestie's wedding day, thinking that maybe I looked a bit chunky in my dress selection.  HOW STUPID WAS I?  (Newsflash to you Size Sixes out there - if you're ever wondering if you look fat, the answer is NO YOU DON'T, NOW SHUT UP!)

Now that I've lived a few more years and added a digit to the front of those measurements, I can't believe I wasted any time worrying about what was obviously a nonexistent problem caused solely by a messed-up, completely skewed body image.  But (thanks to those extra years I've lived) I get closer every day to believing the little voice in my head that whispers, "Hey, if you were so wrong back then, then maybe, just maybe, you look okay today too, but you just don't know it yet.  Maybe you should enjoy how you look and feel today, because years from now you'll look back and realize you looked pretty darn good, despite the extra pounds.  And the wrinkles.  And gray hairs.  And those bat-wing arms."

That's the trouble, I guess - my inner cheerleader tends to digress until she's not really cheering anymore.  I hate that girl.

my old clothes are too small for me to even wear as a hat.

Oh I like you ;)
I'm an upside down girl too. My girlfriend's bridesmaid dresses was a 2 piece...I had a small size for the top (thanks to my itty bitty titties) and a larger one on the bottom.
I blame my mom and donuts.

I never thought of blaming donuts! My mom will be relieved to hear that some of the blame has been lifted. :)
