Outfit post:Just A Phase




Today was an odd day. I went over to my Mom's house to help her with a few things and wrap some Christmas presents. Yeah, don't ask. Working the previous years in a retail orientated business, I did everything last minute because I had no time. This year, I want to actually enjoy the Holidays so I got a head start. Don't worry, I didn't start until AFTER Halloween, I am not THAT psycho (okay November 1st but still!) and I have a nosy kid. I want to keep the whole Santa thing alive for one more year so I hide my stash at my Mom's. He is catching on! Last year, he told me and I quote:"Some kids think that the parents buy the gifts and that there's no such thing as Santa. I am not a stupid kid. I am smart. If you were buying the gifts, I would know where you would hide them. I would find them!" Meanwhile, I am thinking to myself "Yeah,right you little bugger!"

Our old neighbor also just dropped by to say hello. This woman used to live next door from my Mom's and was a real pain in the ass! Seriously, she was a busy body!She once came over to give me shit because she saw my undergarments on the clothes line. According to her, I was "too young to be wearing red lace bras!" I remember my response at that time:"At least I wear one!" because I don't think she ever did! Ha! She also used to look at me, shake her head in disapproval and comment "One day, you won't dress like that. I can't wait to see you grow out of that phase!"

Well, today she asked me how old I was. After I told her my age, she remarked that I have not changed or aged at all since I was still living at home, that I still dress the same and still dye my hair black. My response after thanking her because I like to think she was complimenting me: "Guess, it wasn't a phase after all!" My teen-aged self would have been proud! My Mom snorted and had to stifle her laughter.

This dress was purchased a while back from Mary Mourning's store, Autumn Moon Enchantments. I had to actually have it taken in a little thanks to the weight loss!

The photos were cropped since my kid was in the shot (he was playing on his tablet) and the lack of boots but the last one, I left un-cropped. I was telling the dog to go to her bed in order to stop her from photo bombing me! I thought it was funny!




Proof that she didn't stay in her bed for very long:

    1. Yes and I was 12 or 13 at that time. My Mom bought them for me because I wanted something to feel feminine in. I was a tomboy beforehand. I wasn't sexually active and it was really awkward because she was insisting that I was too young to wear those things.Like I had to wear them to impress some boy or something. Meanwhile she never wore a bra LOL Her boobs hang down to her knees! I swear, people in glass houses shouldnt throw stones :p I am so glad when she moved off to an old folks home. She occasionally drops by to say hi to my mom. My mom is too polite and is always happy to see her leave LOL
