He said he wants to be the archimatect of my misfotune

Dress Ann Taylor Loft
Sweater Gap
Coat Nine West
Bag Tory Burch
Shoes YSL from 2nd hand store
Facinator by a local artist. Gift from husband
Eyeliner Aqualine by MAC

As you can see in the top photo this dress has a giant ruffle around the collar and this insane appliqué along the bottom. The first time I wore it I didn't wear a cami and I wore it to my family reunion. I got some not nice comments about me flaunting my goods. so this dress sat for the past two months in my closet and I would look at it and frown. i am a modest person and they just sent me over the edge. I was trying to look pretty to see family I hadn't seen in years and some I never met. I paid full price retail because I was convinced I could wear it 7 ways from Sunday. Its sleevless. So this is my toe in the water wearing it again.
not bad?

Kinda not feeling it today. That is why I waited 5 hours to post this. I just, I dunno. I am a creature of habit and if I don't post today then I won't tomorrow and the vicious cycle starts. Not looking for the reassurance so don't take it wrong. I am just honest about how I feel. I don't like to pretend I am anything I am not. Some days I am happy and excited. Some I wish I was someone else. You can't have the sweet without the sour.
The real reason I am off today is I am jealous. I am feeling jealous about a lot of things today. Jealousy is not a common emotion for me. Yet when I do I get jealous about everything at once. Ack. I don't like that feeling. I am better than that. I know I am. Don't worry I am sure it will be gone in an hour. My mom and I are both like that. We purge and move on. (emotionally that is)

Odd question but what emotion are you terrible with?

Jealousy is one for me. I try not to do it often. Also crying. Is that an emotion? I am not a crier. Yet when I do I cry until I have a migraine and start hyperventilating.

Irritable. I get annoyed (not necessary angry) very very quickly and then usually it dies down. Right now I'm completely bugged by my mother and I'm hoping to get over it.

I shouldn't let other people's action influence my moods, right? Right!

BAM said...

oh yeah, the dress looks good. I wouldn't worry about thier comments.

hillary said...

I agree we shouldnt but sometimes damn if you can't.
Thats a good motto.
I can't let other peoples actions affect my modes.

I am not "worried" about the comments I got. They were hurtful and from family members. I don't like to her my uncle say how I have nice tits and why am I showing the world them.

I love that dress! It doesn't look that low cut in the pictures at all, certainly not comment-worthy!

Emotion-wise, anger. I don't get angry often, but when I do, it goes on for hours. I'm slowly learning to let things go more quickly though, I think that's what you're meant to do with negative emotions. Don't fight them, but accept them and let them pass naturally.

Becky said...

Oooh I adore that dress! That is a FANTASTIC LBD...sad it was tarnished by unwelcome comments.

I'm impatient. For as sweet as I usually am, I get nasty if someone doesn't catch on to something quickly enough or if I have to wait around. I'm not proud of it-it's just the way I am.

Life is so weird........I clicked over and just about fell out of my chair with how awesome you look today. I honestly "OOOOOO"d outloud. You look amazing. I don't think that dress shows off yer goods either! PFFT!

I'm I guess I have problems with all emotions sometimes, with the main problem being a lack of self control.

hillary said...

C Lo you should have
I'm impetuous
embroidered on a shirt or a cross stitch sampler because I love the sound of it.
and thank you :)

FashionAddict said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE that dress! So pretty!

heather said...

wow. REALLY inappropriate uncle. i am sorry you were subjected to that. but it is an awesome dress (tory burch handbag?! you lucky girl!) so you should wear it to death!

hillary said...

I would not call owning Tory Burch luck I would call it working hard.
I set up an account that my work deposits 20 bucks a week into and once or twice a year I dip in an buy something nice for myself.
I call it my "ladies nice things" account.
So I save up all year to buy them. Luck has nothing to do with it.

Lorena said...

The dress is beautiful, the application on the bottom is just WOW !
It´s awful how one comment can shake you, I hate it when my aunt does it, she does it all the time.
You look great in that dress... and I do think you can wear it a million ways....

Clare said...

Love the color coordination and that awesome hairpiece!!

hillary said...

Thank you so much everyone!

Marianne said...

The dress looks great... I can't believe someone would say otherwise! Plus, I still can't believe someone gave away those shoes... They are to die for!

Sal said...

Glad you found a way to wear that fab dress and be comfortable in it. Or kinda comfortable. It's amazing how we can decide clothing doesn't work, and then just wear it a different WAY and discover that it still does.

Anger. Not that I'm a fly-off-the-handle kind of girl, actually it's really hard to get me riled up. But if you *do* piss me off, I basically demand that we DROP EVERYTHING AND DEAL WITH THIS RIGHT NOW even when people ask for some time to calm down or think things through I goad them into talking about it right now. Which leads to bad situations. But I can't let anger fester, it drives me insane.
