My Unexpected Sexy Day Challenge
For some reason I woke up in a very good mood. A girly mood. A shopping mood. Something that rarely happens, but I went with the flow. I have to admit, I’m a bit of a bore when it comes to fashion. I wasn’t born with the Vogue or Elle gene. I wore boy clothes from the time I was in middle school up until early college. Gradually I came out of my comfort zone and found high heels and skirts to be somewhat alluring, but I never cared for exploring color, tight fitted things, and booty shorts until I started to lose weight. Even then, I was afraid of bringing attention to myself because when you’ve hidden yourself for so long, it can become downright scary and intimidating to try something new. Something daring. Something that’s, well, not you! So you think! Ninety or so pounds down and I still haven’t found my fashion gene. I became close to hiring a detective to help me find it.
Folks, I think today was breakthrough. A step towards extraordinary. A step into the world of skinny jeans and bursts of colorful rainbows. I broke down and purchased a pair of size 12, bright orange, skinny jeans and man, oh man! I have to say that for once, I actually enjoyed my visit to the mall and I may do it again. Did I mention that I’m allergic to the mall? Big crowds and excessive spending? I decided to let Victoria keep her Secrets today and to let someone else buy her lovely bras and panties. I suppose if that’s your thing then go for it. For me, I can find better things to spend my money on, but for 20 bucks, those skinny jeans are mine. I also tried to stay away from the color “black,” except when it came to these hot pleather pants that I’ve been eyeing for while. Hmmmmm!
I wanted to wait until Monday to wear my new pants to work, but after cleaning them and then trying them on again, I decided to slide them on, strut my stuff with a black tank top, black high heels, and bright red lips. The rest is history, Folks. I found something that works well for my body type and actually shows off all of the hard work I’ve been putting in down in the basement and at the dance studio. I never thought I would crave color and change as much as I did today. When I hung those bad boys up in my closet tonight, a huge smile came across my face. Not only do these jeans stand out among the rest of my wardrobe, but they symbolize the brighter side of the person I have become throughout my journey. Man, I’m so sappy.
