The Search For The Right Dress

Hey everyone! Hope you all are doing well. Monday is nearing its close. I know many of you are still reeling from the weekend! I know I am. My work Christmas party was on Saturday. Last Saturday, I ordered two off the shoulder dresses from Rebdolls. I paid for three- four day shipping and it took a dull week for the dresses to arrive. I let thy slide because I procrastinated in purchasing. I ordered the dresses in a 3x thinking that they’d be true to size. This was an epic fail! The dresses were both two small. Body Con styles are typically hit or miss for me. More hit than miss. These dresses looked like crap on me. Between the mirror and my mom dogging my body in those dresses I felt so desolate I felt empty and ashamed of my body. I felt like a whale. Immediately, I rushed to the mall to see what I could find. I headed to Charlotte Russe and Dressbarn.

Here’s why I tried at Charlotte Russe and Dress Barn:

Talk about a big womping no! The mall was closing so I had to leave before trying Torrid and Lane Bryant. I like to WOW. I like to be unique and classy at the same time. I went back to the mall on Saturday to try again. 

Forever 21 was next up in on my hit list! 
There were so promising pieces but I had a few problems. 1.) I couldn’t fit them- darn the junior plus sizing. I’m so frustrated there sometimes because I feel like a whale in that store. 2.) quality- the quality of the clothing at this store is lacking. 
Here’s what I tried: 

I really liked the last dress. I might wear it for New Year’s Eve if I don’t find anything else.
I had given up home until I found  this amazing dress on Saturday. I’ll discuss it more in my following post.

I want you all to know that I am on a journey to loving myself.  Most of the time I’m insecure about my looks and how people perceive me. Most days, I feel like a giant, odd whale trying on clothes. It’s hard. I’m not always confident. I don’t always like what I see in the mirror. I still out my pants on one leg at a time and my bra one boob at a time! I want to feel like I’m that chick, but sometimes I feel like just a chick. I’m trying to learn that the clothes fail me,my body doesn’t  fail the clothes! 
Check out my next post to see what I wore! 
Until next time,
