The title of this weeks post is about needing help. Well, here is my dilemma. This weekend I have a family wedding to go to. I have spent the last 12 weeks (to the day) in leggings, tunics and other various forms of comfy, cozy dressing. Heels are out of my life for now and maybe forever. I'll have to see how future recovery goes. I still have trusty Mr. Walker and hopefully soon, I'll move up to Ms. Cane. Again, that's for the future to tell.
I just reminded myself to stop rambling and get to the point. My flat shoe collection is quite limited and I refuse add to a collection that I hate unless, I can thrift a pair of good quality. Otherwise, I will just have to deal with what I have. Ok, ok, back to the dilemma. Due to the shoe challenge and the fact that my right leg is still somewhat swollen I don't want to wear a knee length dress. The females in my family have become used to me dressing in a certain way. You know, with a little umph! I don't want to disappoint them but I'm not quite sure how much umph I have right now. I may be loosing my mind but, I have narrowed my selection down to two maxi's. Here is where the help portion comes in. I just tried on several options and if you have time I would appreciate you giving me your honest but nice opinion. I can't handle mean at this point.
If all of the options I have listed get a thumbs down I can go the the little black or red dress.
Right now I don't feel like I have the confidence to pull off a look I've worn many times with my head held high. But at 54, I don't want to be seated at the Grandma table. It's bad enough having a personal four wheeled walking assistant let alone being put at the table where everybody leaves after dinner! I swear if they put me at that table I'm pulling out the zip lock baggies and stocking up on beef and chicken!!!
So, bring it on sister chicks........Let me know what you think. I will decide on jewelry and accessories after I pick the dress. I have a ton of options. Keep in mind I have on no slimming garments and not a drop of makeup... (the reason for the shades!). I don't even think I've brushed my teeth yet today!
Well here goes..........The non embellished me!
