So for some reason I thought this dress was longer than it actually is. Since it is in fact, above the knee, I had to quickly (badly) shave my legs a bit this morning in order to make wearing a dress acceptable. I long for the day when hairy legs on women are no longer an issue. Will that day ever come? Or am I doomed to shave everyday for the rest of my life? On Friday, I had thought about wearing this dress, but decided on a different one. And it was a good decision too, since I found myself sitting beside a girl who was wearing this very dress on the way to work. I’m glad we managed to avoid a “who wore it better?” competition on the bus. I figured if that girl were on the bus again this morning, she wouldn’t be wearing the same outfit again so soon. And I hoped that no one else would either. I got the dress at H&M at Pacific Centre a couple months ago. The matching green sweater is from Old Navy at Richmond Centre. My necklace and ring are from UBC, my earrings are from a kiosk at Lansdowne Centre, and my bracelet is from Dollarama at Landosowne Centre. After seven days, I finally washed my hair on Saturday. As you can see, it is no longer straight. I’m fine with my natural waves, I just wish there wasn’t so much frizz.
Maybe the reason why I thought this dress was longer is because it was longer on that other woman who wore it. I should know by now that any dress is a short dress when I wear it.
