I used to always love mod clothes when I was about 10-13. I was often called “Twiggy” (not in a nice way) and hated it because I was very skinny to the point where I never wore skirts except on very seldom occasion (usually they were very long skirts so no one would see my stick figured legs, but it didn’t help that my arms were super long and thin too). That was about the time when my mom told me more about how Twiggy was and I saw photos of her. It made me feel less grossed out by myself, but at the same time I would steal my brother’s weight gainer vitamins. You won’t see me in these type of clothes often because I don’t like skirts above my knobby knees as it is. I used to get mocked a lot for how thin I was, because I was not blossoming at the same rate as the other girls in school, and it made me feel as if I wasn’t good enough. I was always really tall for my age, but being so skinny and under developed (other than when I got giant hips at 14) just made me always look 3-6 years younger in a time when you WANT to look your age or maybe a year older. My mom told me, “You’re beautiful!” all the time. When you have no friends and are constantly tormented for being flat chested, and overly skinny and ugly between ages 10-15, it starts to be something you believe. Thankfully I felt much better about my body by the time I was about 17.
I think that it is important to have a healthy diet or to eat correctly without under or over eating. I used to over eat to gain weight and it didn’t work too well at all, because I do still have a high metabolism. I don’t like laziness and think people need to get off of their couch and start moving around! I love when I meet people who are so happy and content with their body size. I am happy and content with my size, but it took a LONG time to accept that.
[what a windy day that was]
So while it seems most people want to be skinny, remember there are some skinny people wishing they were bigger! I was one of them, but just couldn’t get that way thanks to that metabolism of mine.
Although I do adore this dress that my husband again picked out for me, I don’t know what I think about the back piece keyhole. For the most part my hair covers it anyway, but I just don’t know how I feel regarding my modesty love. I just hope it isn’t too much back.
I am sorry these photos aren’t the best of my shots at all, but I promised I said I’d post them (I almost didn’t at all). Very cute dress. I love all the details on it and the colours.
