My Inner Diva

7 Aug

It is no surprise to those who know me… I am not a size zero or two or four, or even six. Frankly it has been a while since I was a size 8 or even 10. That said, I dress for my size while trying to look cute, professional, and 30. I admit, I tend to be a bit conservative because I am not a size zero or two and don’t always think I can wear something a little short, fun, and flirty.

Well, I was wrong. My good friend Erin took me shopping yesterday…well we met at her new fav boutique which happens to be inexpensive, something else I needed. I often joked as I picked out some of the clothes, they were cute but I did not think they would work on me. Erin made me try them on and you know what, while some definitely were a no, some were a YES. I ended up with a plum strapless dress with silver accents hitting just above the knee. Not a dress to bend over in and something I would have never bought myself; I would have said I am “too big” to wear it. But with the heels and the hair down… I looked divalicous for a night on the town, which we did go out last night too.

Erin is slowly (because I move slow on this end) helping me realize I can dress for my size and cute and in style with some of the latest trends and still pull it all off. Apparently I need to embrace my curves or something like that… 😉 Embracing my curves or not, I admit I felt myself sit a little straighter, walk a little taller, and feel a little cuter last night. 

Here’s to embracing my inner diva (thanks Erin) and knowing I still need to hit the gym!
