I am very sorry to report that I did not finish my "LBD" in time for graduation (wearing a sad face). Needless to say, sometimes things just don't work out as I plan - I just have to SHAKE IT OFF and move on (voice quivering). I was determined that I wanted to look a certain way under that graduation robe even though my dress wouldn't be seen. When it comes to SOMETHINGS, deep down inside I am a stubborn, got to have it my way sort of person. This was one of those things, but an extensive search of my closet revealed a RTW black sheath & jacket ensemble that had been pushed back because it had become to small for my extended shape. I am so glad that I had not gotten rid of it in one of my ruthless closet clean-ups as I have so many things. I dusted the dress off and tried it on and was surprised that I could get it zipped up. Trying it on revealed all of the (muffin top rolls) that one does not want to expose (sad to say). So finally I was off to the store to finally buy that Spanx that I have put off purchasing for much too long. Man, what a difference it made. Made me feel erect and thin! I even think this thing will be good for my tricky back! I even wore heels; hadn't worn heels in over 5 years because of the problem I have with my foot - so walking in them was a bit scary.
No, I didn't get a picture, just wanted you to know what happened with my LBD. Its hanging on the door as a UFO right now, waiting until I can get someone to help me fit it. I just couldn't get it done all by myself. I am still determined to get a properly fitted sheath dress done this summer. More to come on this quest later....and by the way....I graduated with honors!
