Many people think of me as a casual dresser, but I used to love wearing dresses and getting all dolled up for something. I had my glamourous side, still do when need be. Love being glamourous. Sadly, because of circumstances beyond my control for the past dozen years, I had to put away my glamourous side and stuff the dresses into the closet and not bother with makeup or jewelry (which I used to not want to be caught dead outside the house without). I mean what would be the point in dressing up just to sit down at my survival job all day with very little human interaction. You know, the old “all dressed up and no place to go” scenario. I miss it though sometimes. When I go through shops, I sigh and sometimes get a bit misty at the thoughts of what could have been whenever I pass by a pretty dress that catches my eye because there is no point or reason when I can’t afford to go out anywhere.
Anyways, I had this idea to say “screw it” and go ahead and wear one of my dresses tomorrow to work. No reason other than the fact that I miss it and maybe it would get me through tomorrow’s dreadful drudgery. If you know me, you know why I don’t particularly welcome tomorrow. I figured this one dress would be fine for work. It wasn’t too short or too flashy and still fit after all these years (my size really hasn’t changed all too much since high school). One of my nylons unfortunately felt a bit filmy so tossed those, and my slip was a bit too short and I could not find my longer one. Not having a slip would have made the skirt a bit inappropriate for work as standing in the light would make things a bit visible. Oh well, so much for that idea. Will just have to settle for the same old same old. Too much settling in my life. Not sure my knees would care for the dress shoes right now, they’ve been giving me a bit of discomfort, and the ankles like to get puffy lately too. Got a sad again. 😦
Still painting my nails though dammit!
