If an event is called “The Sexy Self Love Soirée,” you better come sexy! During the week, I’m wearing “teacher” clothes, so I went all out for this Women Enough event, especially since it was for showing yourself some love.
I took the bart train to downtown San Francisco, and since it was so cold, layers were necessary. That, and you can’t be too sexy walking down the street. If I didn’t wear leggings underneath my bright pink trench coat, imaginations would have run wild. And forget about walking up Powell Street in heels! Flats were my best companion. But as soon as I arrived at the event, I brought sexy back and put my heels on.
I call the dress I wore my “ugly” dress. I know, it doesn’t make sense to wear an ugly dress to a sexy event, but here’s the story: During my birthday weekend, after a nice dinner out, we decided to go out for some drinks. I didn’t want to go out in just jeans and a t-shirt, so I needed to find a dress- quickly. With only a few minutes until the mall closed, I ran into Express, tried on about 5 dresses, and didn’t like anything. Just before the store closed, I saw the “ugly” dress on the rack. It wasn’t ugly at all to me; the bandage bottom and v-necked blouson top looked very comfortable, yet sexy…and I didn’t even need a strapless bra! Score! There was no need to try it on, because I knew it was perfect….
Until…some chick called me ugly that night. What an ugly thing to say. I know better than to believe her, but ever since then, I relate what she called me to that dress.
I usually don’t wear the same dress over and over (and over) again, but this dress has become a fave. And I made sure to be as sexy as I could be every time I wore it. New Years Eve, friend’s birthday parties, or even just dinner, I switch up my accessories to make this dress make me feel anything but ugly.
