About 6-7 weeks ago I ordered a dress online that I planned to wear to my shower on June 9th and my rehearsal. It’s a long story but it won’t be here in time for my shower. So I thought “Okay no problem, I get to buy another dress!” I know my shower is going to be Barbie themed, so I thought if I could find a fun pink dress it would be great. I found one online that was so cute. It came at the end of last week and the pink was a little off but still really cute. But when I put it on I looked horrible.
Being plus-sized I’m already really self conscious, but I put the dress on and I cried. All I could see was my lumps, even though Fiance insisted I looked gorgeous. (I seriously think he’s a saint). My mom said it was OK but admitted it wasn’t flattering. I don’t have time left to order online. I’ve looked on some plus-size sites with dresses and I’d have to pay a TON to have them shipped overnight, but then again I didn’t realy like any. I tried a few stores but couldn’t see anything reasonable.
Today, I decided to run out at lunch and check a store again to see if they had anything new from last week. They had a couple and one of them was a white “cha-cha” dress. I put it on and actually felt cute. I sent a pic to my Maid/Matron of Honor and Fiance and they both said it looks really good. I’ve decided I’m going to add a pop of colour with some jewelry and shoes.
Here’s my dress:
I haven’t decided which colour I’m going to use to accessorize. I could do my bridal colour coral and use my DIY shoes that I’ll wear for my rehearsal. Or I could do hot pink, which is more Barbie themed, since I already have some cute hot pink shoes.
Let me know what you think! And please be kind, my self-esteem is almost non-existant these days 🙁
