the first of many costumed nights

Day of a billion posts, yes indeed. Last night I rocked the dance floor in ways I didn't even know I could. Somehow I was inspired to do things I didn't realize I could do. And at some point in the midst of it all I remember thinking...what am I doing...and what does it look like?

I got lots of compliments on my Catholic school girl costume. One guy even told me I was "gloriously hot". This made me beam since I actually feel pretty self conscious in that costume. Believe it or not, it's because my wrists are showing. Anyone who sees me at the clubs may notice I'm always wearing arm warmers or at least wrist cuffs. I have these slender arms with bony, tiny little wrists that don't get any bigger no matter how much weight I gain. I could be 98 pounds or 108 but I will always have these skeletal looking bony wrists and forearms. This often gives the impression that I'm grossly underweight, even when I'm not. So this costume has nothing to go with it that will cover my arms. I was feeling practically naked and a little self conscious with bare wrists and all. So the compliments were much appreciated.

I met up with many friends and got lots of snuggles and even a little massage. I can't for the life of me figure out why my muscles were so tense. I'm not even working a job right now. Who knew that starting a business could be so stressful. Oh wait...everybody.

If you don't feel comfortable showing your wrists, I think big plastic bangles would work well with the school girl look.
My wrists are too small for bracelets, they come right off. I can't even wear those cool rubber wrist bands that all the charities put out.

bracelets

For the schoolgirl outfit, you could wear a candy bracelet (remember those?) or some plastic stretchy ones.
get some bracelets from the kids section at claires or somewhere. they run smaller ;)
Funny--I feel like my skinny wrists make the rest of me look fat!
Women ALWAYS think there is something wrong with themselves. They focus on it, instead of the MANY things that are so RIGHT with themselves.

If you could only see yourself through somebody else's eyes.
