So far this year my Friday posts have been Flawless-related.
But not really today.
And I had an experience today that I thought would fit, so I’m sharing it.
Our internet went out for a little while today.
So my sister and I decided to go do a little shopping.
I wanted a couple of new shirts anyway.
So we went out.
And we looked at clothes.
And she convinced me to try on a few dresses.
I rarely ever try on dresses, because I’m not sure I look in them.
It’s this terrible cycle of thinking I’d look ridiculous in something but never trying it on to make sure because I think it’s ridiculous because I’ve never tried them on…
I have two dresses.
I’ve only worn each of them probably once or twice.
They’re fancy-ish dresses.
I wore one to an Easter service at church and the other at my Graduation party and my cousin’s wedding.
I haven’t worn either of them since.
And I haven’t bought any new ones, because I’m not sure I look good in dresses.
That’s something I realized today.
And it kind of makes me sad.
I’d like to wear dresses, but I don’t take the time to actually try them and see how they look.
Is that like a metaphor for life or something?
…Pardon me, I read The Fault in Our Stars today.
It is full of metaphors.
But yeah, shopping always makes me think.
And I thought I’d share those thoughts.
