Maxi Dress –Day 1
I have reached the halfway point in “My Year of Fabulous” and if I’ve learned anything at all, it’s that I hate wearing dresses. At best I feel silly, at worst I feel like I’m headed to court.
But I love dresses on other people. I always think they look great and I always wish I could throw on a dress with such ease. I imagine someone approaching me about a dress I’m wearing and I just say, “Oh, this ol’ thing? Why, I just threw it on.” (For this imaginary scenario, I also have a Southern accent).
And that’s why I am going to make myself wear a dress every single day for the month of July. For a lot of women, this doesn’t sound hard at all. But for me, I’d rather wear a month of leg irons. I’ve got the rest of the year with lots of different looks that feature lots of different dresses and I don’t want to dread any of it. My hope is to learn to love dresses or die trying.
I’ve chosen the maxi dress because they are flattering and the epitome of summer. I will try to hunt down 31 of them (either borrowed, consignment or thrift) so every day I will be in a different style, color and comfort level.
It’s immersion therapy time and I’m about to go crazy girly…
