As I said a few days ago I am attempting to wear those things I either promised I would or swore I would never. So unfortunately today that means I am wearing this…
Top & Bottom combo: Yep, I am wearing something I swore I would NEVER wear on this blog… Miller! Yes it’s a Miller Big Love styled Mormon-esque denim maxi dress. Why am I wearing it? Because it was given to me and in the rules of YoD I promised to wear ANYTHING ANYONE gave me. I have put it off since Christmas (when I received this bounteous gift)
Accessory: To fully render the hausfrau/ Mormon lady look I have gone with the head skarf
Honestly, I don’t know how long I will be able to wear this dress. Clothes maketh the (wo)man as Shakespeare wrote, and I am not sure I like what this dress makes me.
Suddenly I appear to be a middle aged woman. Strictly speaking that is actually true, but do I HAVE to dress like one? When I see this photo I don’t see someone playing dress-up, or slipping ironically into an hilariously ugly outfit, I see a middle aged woman who needs to get a new bra, and quite possibly a new life.
I cannot promise that I will be psychologically ABLE to wear this dress all day. For my mental well being I am probably going to have to slip into something a little less appropriate and a little more my mind’s eye of me.
I want to be less this….
And more this…
Thanks to ana australiana for sending this hot picture my way.
