First thing first: no, this is not my scooter. I really wish it was. How cool would that be? It belongs to my friend and it just happened to make a fun backdrop. Moving on to the outfit. Sleeveless dresses, let’s chat about them a bit shall we? I used to hate wearing anything sleeveless like this because I’ve always been really self-conscious about my arms, so anything that showcased just arm and no shoulder made me feel weirdly exposed and naked. I know, it doesn’t actually make any sense, but that was the deal. The older I get the less self-conscious I am about things like that so I’ve recently re-discovered and embraced the sleeveless dress (’like for my Birthday outfit":http://strangerthanvintage.blogspot.com/2012/06/what-i-wore-wednesday-happy-birthday.html)!
I actually wore this dress in the Shedd Aquarium outfit post, but covered up due to my sleeveless dress self-inflicted paranoia.
So here I am, conquering the sleeveless dress damnit! Sorry, I got excited…er? Empowered? I suppose clothes and conquering insecurities is a pretty empowering feeling. If you haven’t done it recently, I highly recommend.
