Short Skirts, Scissors and Sewing Machines...

Hello ya'll! As I'm writing this post there's so much going on in my head...like for instance that it's a chilly 33°F/1°C degrees and just two weeks ago (when we took this photos) the weather was so nice!

Then there's the fact I found this dress while thrifting in Texas, and last night it SNOWED there! What?? We haven't had any snow (not even flurries) yet this winter at my home here in Nebraska! Crazy.

And how I should probably be doing something more productive (since I've been on the computer all day for school)...but...I'll just edit and write up this post instead. ;)

Dress: Goodwill / Belt: Thrifted / Necklace: Nebraska State Fair Booth / Shoes: Payless / Sunnies: Torrid

While we were down in Texas celebrating Thanksgiving we HAD to stop at the GoodWill that's only 5 minutes from my sister's house! 

I wasn't expecting to find any clothes but as I was going through the dresses...(it never hurts to look, am I right??) I saw scissors! It wasn't until I had pulled the dress out that I noticed it was sewing machines too!!! 

Naturally, the dress went straight into my cart.

In the dressing room as I tried it on...I hated it. It's a size too big. Didn't look good on me. I just didn't like it.

Kimberly was the one who convinced me to actually buy it. "Jewel, if anything you can reuse the fabric! ...AND you don't have any makeup on or your hair done..." She was right of course. 

I could use this awesome fabric for something else...but since I wasn't wearing any makeup, I was taking my uncomfortability of being out of the house "not completely dressed" out on the dress. All I was seeing was my acne covered face and messy hair.

There's a lesson in there...when I'm wearing a t-shirt with shorts, no makeup and just my hair up in a ponytail....I don't feel like myself. I don't feel confident. I feel as if more people are looking at me because they can see my acne. Because that is not who I am. That's not what I wear when I go out. When I leave the house, I wear a dress with scissors and sewing machines and OWN it. 

Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.
