Dress and Tights: The Limited
"If you remember not to tread with caution, I'll make your body speak in full distortion." - Hot Chip
Well, check me out in the fourth photo up there! No, I'm not molesting a tree. I do believe that is a booty tooch. Tyra Banks would be so proud. I started out with a pose like the one in the third photo, but Jerry told me to put my arm further back behind me, and whallah, booty tooch. Those creepy photography dudes really know how to trick you into a sexy pose. Perves! Honestly, I really try my best not to hug things as much these days, but I threw all caution to the wind in these photos and had some fun.
I purchased this dress a couple of weeks ago for 40% off at The Limited. It had caught my eye once before, but I didn't want to pay full price for it. I was really surprised to see it still around after the holidays, marked down with an additional 40% off. As I moved my mouse over to the available sizes box, I was pretty sure there were only going to be XS's or XL's left. I clicked and was delighted to see a big fat M staring back at me. Truly, that never happens. It was a sign! I purchased this sucker as fast as my fingers would let me. I noticed once I made my purchase, the dress was no longer on the website. I prepared myself for the possibilty of a cancellation, but 24 hours later, I received a shipping notification in my inbox. Yes, I must have scored the last one!
Once I received it, I wasn't sure if I liked it or not. It's a little more form fitting than I thought it would be. In addition to the booty tooch, I have a little tummy pooch. Booty tooch = good. Tummy pooch = bad. Then I heard the voices of comments past in my head saying, "Show off those curves", "Be a woman", "Own your body", "Stop dressing like a frump." I was inspired. I had earned that tummy pooch and by golly I was going to show it off! I ended up getting several compliments, and Jerry told me I looked hot! I guess it pays off to own your body. Maybe the tummy pooch is the new booty tooch! Yeah, I'm not holding my breath, or should I say sucking in my stomach.
