I have the Flu. This is not a bad cold or severe allergies, but the truest of the true Flu. With that in mind, as I sit here burning up with a fever, I'm going share my latest fashion obsession with you. The denim shirt dress.
This obsession started because I tried one on and was surprised at how great it looked on my overly curvy figure. It was super disappointing to find the dress had a defect and they had no more in my size. While I've been bedridden and trying not to drown in the used tissues that surround me, I've been obsessively scouring the net to try and find another one just as awesome. Here's what I've found so far:
Let's talk about why I was so hesitant to try something like this in the first place. Once upon a time, there was some inane comment made, by a snarky individual in my life, about large women wearing a lot of denim. It wasn't a pleasant experience and it left it's mark on me. I want to say something profound here about societal pressures to conform, body image, self acceptance, and fashion but the flu fog has pretty much limited my abilities. So I'm going to sum it all up for myself with, if you like a denim shirt dress, find one in a style that fits your body, makes you feel good, and forget the rest.
