Hello My little Fashion Adventurers,
This dress is a thrift store special (insert giggle). The first thing I thought of when I saw it was “school teacher”. When I got it it was tea length, but after I got it home I decided to cut it. After cutting it naught school teacher was in full effect lol.
Now for the adventure me and my girls have been going   out on Wednesday nights after work. So, I wanted to wear something I could wear to work and then quickly transition to nightlife. I choose my naught school teacher dress not hemmed and all. To work I paired it with tights and my combat boots, then that night I took off the tights (see sexy legs above lol) and threw on my gold wedges. I got tons of compliments and oddly people asking me if it was my birthday?!! Really?? What are some of your day to night looks?
A few snaps from work below :

     Lately I have been extremely self conscience about my weight (I’m working on it). Self image is extremely important, as it affects your confidence, mood, and overall demeanor. I am a person that loves getting dress but do to my issues with my body image I’ve been limited in the things I can wear. Everything I put on makes feel fat, therefore I haven’t been blogging. The other day; when I was off (usually the day when I dress my best) I decided to wear these denim overalls I DIY’ed from last summer. I got them from the thrift store and bleached & shredded them really nicely. I like that there almost over bleached because they have that look like I’ve been painting or working around the house. Best part of it all is they are so baggy I don’t feel like all my secrets (my fat) is hanging out. Pair them with my burgundy wedges to dress it up and threw on a nice lippie. Funny thing is I still felt blah but I received so many compliments I decided to share. Do you every just feel fat? How do you cope? What do You where?

     This week is Mardi Gras week which means days of partying, parades, and social club coronation balls. I having never attended a ball have always wanted to go one, specifically the Zulu Ball. Every year when the Mardi Gras festivities were over I would see the pictures from the Zulu Ball and drool over the elaborate garments and musical performers that were featured. I would declare every year "I'm going next year". Well this year was finally my year. As usual I had forgotten about my yearly declaration to attend the ball, but this year it hit me exactly a month before the event and I was able to get a ticket. Initially without even thinking I decided I would construct my own dress, but later decided to just buy a dress after the realization of time constraints, putting my car in the shop, and other obstacles.  When  I finally got my car out of the shop it was a little over two weeks before the event.  I went dress shopping only I couldn't find anything special... everything was cookie cutter. So I made the final decision to make the dress. Here is the result: Fotor030523227
