Bombshell – Day 14
I’ve been doing this fashion experiment for 319 days so far and yesterday’s outfit earned the most compliments out of any outfit I’ve worn this entire year….
Why am I being photographed in a bathroom? I’ll explain that later. First, I’d like to share all the compliments. I’m also going to write them down in permanent marker, put them in a time capsule and bury them in our yard for future generations and mutant cockroaches to enjoy in the year 3000.
THE COMPLIMENTS –
“You look hot.” (from a mom at school)
“You look soooo hot.” (from my children’s art teacher)
“You look really hot.” (from a man that approached me at the grocery store. This was the only compliment of the day that I didn’t really enjoy. He then went on to say, “You know what’s the best part about your heels? You get to be taller than guys like me.” This confused me. Why is that the best part about my heels, small man? I would have asked him, but did not want to prolong the conversation.)
This was a banner day for me. I don’t think I’ve gotten “three hots” in one day ever. I’m actually not sure I’ve ever ever gotten “one hot” in a day, you know, from someone other than my husband. But did the compliments stop there? Oh no, they just got specific.
THE COMPLIMENTS (CONTINUED) –
“I love your skirt.” (woman passing me on the street.)
“I love your skirt.” (woman passing me on the street like ten seconds later.)
“I love, love, love your skirt. Like so much I want to steal it.” (from another woman passing me on the street. My kids thought this was the funniest compliment of the day.)
“I love your shoes!” (from yet another kind stranger.)
Then, the icing on the cake compliment. A woman walked past me while I was at the park and said, “You’re looking very Bombshell today.” She then smiled and said she liked my blog. You made my day!
Now, the reason I took a picture of my ever most complimented outfit in a public bathroom is simple — my head was so full of compliments that I almost forgot to take a picture at all. My kids and I went to see a pirate show last night and as we were using the bathroom before the show I realized that I had not documented the outfit! The bathroom picture isn’t that great, so I took another picture after the show to see if I could do any better —
My day yesterday really proves to me the power of fashion. My entire experience changed just by what I was wearing. I was the same person, walking around the same town, and yet everything was different. Amazing. I mean, really, we’re just talking about clothes here.
Oh, I’m also going to put this picture in the time capsule —
Let the record show that my kids washed their hands at least once during childhood…
