Does This Toe Ring Make Me Look Fat?

I will be the first to admit… sense of fashion has never been the sharpest.  I love to shop for clothes.  I love to shop for shoes.  I love to shop for purses.  I love to shop for jewelry.  My problem lies in putting them all together to make something stylish.  Perhaps the problem originates from my poor self image.  I am overweight.  I allow the number on the tag to determine how I feel I look.  If everyone would just go in my closet and replace all the tags with tags that say 4 then I might feel better.  I’ll wait right here while you do that………..**playing the jeopardy song**………..

I feel the most comfortable in a pair of yoga pants and a tee shirt.  That may be the problem.  I don’t worry about how I look around here.  And, honestly, I rarely go anywhere else.  I hate regular clothes.  And I hate shoes.  I wasn’t born or raised in the country.  But I would rather run around town, my house and my yard without shoes on.  I wonder if what I am most comfortable in says anything about me as a person – you know, like I’m a bum…or a redneck…it probably says mostly that I’m lucky I got married when I did because I certainly wouldn’t be able to catch anything now.

My sense of accessorizing has also wained over time.  Ten years ago I was a Premier Designs consultant.  I could wear every piece of jewelry in my case in one day and it not look gawdy.  But most of the time now when I pull out a single necklace I think it looks awful on me.  I used to be able to layer 57 necklaces for church on Sunday.  But now I just walk away from the jewelry case without even trying one on anymore.  I like all kinds of jewelry – bracelets, rings, necklaces, earrings, anklets, and even toe rings.  I have 3 holes pierced in each ear.  I hardly ever wear 3 pair of earrings anymore.

I really think I was on to something in the first paragraph.  I am overweight and I hate it.  I feel like it’s a waste of time to put forth any effort into trying to look good because I feel like all anyone will ever notice about me is how much I weigh.  I’m sure that every purchase I make will help me to disguise the weight.  Yet when I put a specific shirt on you can see my fat rolls.  When I put on a pair of pants I feel like all anyone is gonna see is my fat thighs.  When I put on a bracelet I worry that people might notice it doesn’t dangle like a bracelet is supposed to.  When I put on a pair of shoes they hurt my feet too much because my feet are a Wide and not many people sell certain styles in a W so I buy 1/2 size up – which feels ok in the store.  But by the time I walk downstairs with them on I’m ruing the day I bought them.  Because I have short stubby fingers even rings don’t look good on me.

I realize this post is probably just a little too honest.  I didn’t intend for it to be that way.  I actually intended to make fun of myself.  I guess I just needed to get some things off my chest.  If you made it this far in the post then you deserve a blue ribbon for listening to my whining.  Every now and then a girl just needs to whine a little.  I hope you’ll forgive me.

Are you finished with those tags yet?  Remember, size 4!!!!!!
