Day 359 of Year 7- Feelin' fashionable

Today's theme in We're Here! is about our feelings. And today, I felt a lot of things. I felt scared, nervous, exposed, and overall, I felt pretty. I even went out in public like this today (the grocery store).


Why did I feel all those things? Because this dress is the first time I've worn something this short since 2006. That was when I had my final knee injury that resulted in the weight gain and three years of hell that ended with my first knee replacement (2009) and an eventual diagnosis of fibro (2010). I have edema in my legs, but over the last year or so, it has gotten better. It still happens if I spend a lot of time standing (like at faire or Teslacon), but not so much day-to-day. So, I got brave when I found this website called Society+. This is their red skater dress. I also picked up a floral midi skirt that looks amazing. They're having a sale and I'm fighting the urge to buy more things.


I still can't wear heels (at least not cute sexy girly heels), but I think my black and white brogues look okay with this. They'll look even cuter with the skirt I got. I took this photo with my phone after I survived going to the store like this. Also- bonus Gregg the girl dog in the corner.


And also- F is for Fashion in February's Alphabet Fun for 2017.
