Or how my SuBtle Dress became my Lucky Dress. Thanks Melissa for the new name for my dress. 🙂
My SuBtle dress was indeed lucky last night. I put it through the wash yesterday so I could wear it out for a night on the town that evening. It came out perfectly. Do you ever worry about your sewn clothes? Sometime I don’t trust my hand stitches or have this irrational fear that my dress will fall apart in the washer. But, my LBD came out like a champ. I pressed her, put her on and went out to dinner.
In fact, last night’s dinner has turned into another dinner next week. Ergo, henceforth, the SuBtle dress will now be known as my Lucky dress!
And I did not feel invisible last night at all. Thank you so much for all of you who wrote such supportive comments about my feeling invisible the last few years. It IS all about confidence and attitude. If you want to be noticed, you will. When I think back to all the times I did feel invisible, I realized that they were times when I felt unhappy with how I looked or wasn’t feeling confident at all. I’m sure I put out “don’t look at me” vibes. Well, no more. Mama doesn’t want to be invisible anymore!
What’s next? I’m thinking a pair of linen pants is next… I’m thinking V8584.
