hello, all! happy happy friday! i have two little shout outs this morning. first off, our It's A Date! *Hunt and Gather* sale kicks off tonight! happy hour and vintage? yes, please! if you are in the minneapolis area, we would love to see you! secondly, it is mimi's eighteen-month birthday today! crazy. a year and a half. and it has flown by! it feels like just yesterday that i was holding a brand new, teeny (not even six pounds!) newborn. now she is walking (running even!), talking...well, i'll just say it. she isn't a baby anymore. she's a kid. my amazing, awesome kid.
a few days old.
a few days ago.
so, i have an outfit post for you today, but i feel it needs a bit of an explanation. i have four sisters, three of whom were blessed with my mothers amazing curves. my oldest sister and i, however, inherited my dad's body. straight, no hips, flat butt, skinny legs. have you ever seen those late night infomercials selling the underwear with the built-in butt? i'm not going to say i have never thought about dialing that number (if you call now, you get a second one free!). and sadly, what little curves i used to have became smaller and/or saggier after my pregnancy. so, i was always jealous of my curvier sisters (still am, to be honest), but i have come to accept my body. there are worse problems than constantly having to hike up your pants (and underwear) throughout the day. i have embraced belts (do they make underwear belts?). i have learned to dress my body to create the illusion of curves. i have learned to do this, yes, but i do not always follow through. sometimes throwing on a loose, shapeless
sack dress is just easier. it's like saying, hey world! nothing to see here! move along. i have quite a few of these in my closet. and whenever i see one while out thrifting i almost can't resist buying it. so, that is my long explanation for this dress.
