Dress me up in your love

Wow, thanks for all the dress advice, people! There are 22 comments on my last entry where I bitch and moan about finding a nice dress, which is by far and away a record for this blog. Who knew you all were such fashionistas? I’m like your own personal Barbie. Anyway, I got a lot of great tips, some links and I’ll be sure to let you guys know what I eventually settle on. There might even be some photos. Thanks again to everyone.

In response to one question, my mom is indeed a seamstress at the bridal shop. My mother is from a small Indiana town, and my grandmother made sure all seven of her daughters learned to sew. Mom made her own wedding gown and used to make me dresses when I was a little girl, but hasn’t really sewn much at home in the past decade. She’s going to be selling the house in the next couple months though, so I don’t really want to add “Make daughter a stunning dress” to her already overloaded list of things to do. However, she did say she’ll handle any alterations I need. Score!

Hi, I was wondering if you could package this Blog theme that you have created. it’s fantastic!! the great things about this theme is the information on the right, the 3d pictures and just the overall layout. I’ve been trying to figure out Movable Type, for my own Blog, but i’m an idiot with no programming talent whatsoever.

Your weight loss progress is outstanding and I wish you all the best in the future. I’ve lost 80+ pounds a few times in my life, and i think not having feedback, or people to talk to about it is a big reason it keeps coming back on.

thanks, PJ

I read the post regarding the dress dilemma. Take your friends shopping with you. Pick several dresses in different styles,colors. Try them on. You will wind up with maybe two or three “winners” that you like. Then let your friends decide what looks good. I think maybe your have no objectivity when it comes to the mirror. I was looking at your “before” and latest “after” photos and you do not look as bad or as fat as you think you do.(I also read the post re: “Fat Chick in the Skinny Chick” section of the department store, this is what lead me to believe you aren’t objective about how you look.)

PJ – I’m glad you like the design of the site! However, since it features actual pictures of me, I don’t feel comfortable packaging it as a theme.

Michele – Lately I’ve actually felt pretty bitchin’ about how I look. However, my upper arms are just my “freak out” area. I think most people have some part of their body they are overly concerned with, be it they think their butt’s too big or they have a bad complexion or they think their teeth are too yellow. For me it’s flabby upper arms. Thanks for the rec though, having more eyes always helps.
