Didn’t take me long to find what I was looking for. Simple. Cute.
Ring it up.
As I was driving home I began to have this nagging uncomfortable feeling in the pit of my stomach.
What the hell was that.
After a little soul searching I realized I was having a wee bit of buyers regret.
What do I need to spend $190.00 dollars on ANOTHER little black dress for?
When I got home I rummaged through my closet and checked out the dresses from the last 5 years. Surely something in here would work for this event next month.
Dress1…hmmm 1 little problem
Dress 2…hmmm 1 little problem
Dress 3 hmmm 1 little problem
The problem is. My belly. Ouch it was even hard to type the word! Pathetic.
This past couple of years I have been dealing with a back injury which has meant NO crunches for me. This means extra insulation for the tummy. So sexy!
Right then and there I made a decision. I took back that 190.00 dress. I am not walking into this charity event with a dress that makes me look 4 months pregnant, and went into the new store in the mall. Maybe you have heard of it? Spanx.
I felt like a 16 year old girl trying to buy booze!
I looked left and right to make sure no one I knew was around.
I surveyed the store from the outside.
Then…I rushed in.
My girlfriends have been raving about these Spanx for months so I knew what I wanted. Thank goodness they run in sizes like panty hose so I could just select my colour and size and get the hell out of there!
Back home. Try on the contraband.
OH MY GOOOOD!!!
Dress 1….That looks better!
Dress 2…Holy Cow this dress looks too big now!
Dress 3…Eeek. I think I might be hot!
These Spanx don’t pinch or roll, nothing flubs over the top, they just kind of smooootthh. I think I am in love. Imagine how great my butt would look if I wore these under my Lulu Lemons!
Instead of spending $190.00 on a dress, I spent $59.00 on Spanx and actually feel good about myself.
Ahhh Spanx, from the top of my belly to the bottom of my heart I thank you.
