Owl tell you what I see in the mirror

I just grabbed this lovely orange owl dress from Yumi at House of Fraser when I was up North. It's still on sale on the website here, but I got it for £15! I couldn't pass it up. Even if it does scream HALLOWEEN to me. lol

Anyway, I thought I would do something a bit out of character for me. I'd post a photo of me. I've been pretty shy to show myself. I don't know why really. I just have.

Actually, I do know why. It's been a bit of an up and down last couple of years for me, and sadly that's been true of the scale too. I'm actually struggling a bit with my weight right now. I'm currently the heaviest I've ever been. Like I never ever thought I could weigh this much. However, I still feel like a thinner girl. I get shocked when I look in the mirror, or in this case when I take a picture and look at it. What way to get better at accepting yourself than by being open, so I'm sharing with you here. I'll try to do this from time to time. It was also a glasses day, so sorry for the glare. This is also first thing in the morning, so I get bonus points for being awake in this photo.

Oh yeah, of course, I did take this photo back in 1979. N'ah actually, I propped my camera on a scarf and the scarf somehow got in the way of the lens. Sigh. I can't be the only blogger who can't figure out this camera business.

I also want to say thanks for Laura over at A Daisy Chain Dream because she has inspired me to share my outfit! Thanks, Laura for always be honest and sharing how you feel. You helped remind me that we all have insecurities. It's hard when all your blogroll is full of lovely ladies who look gorgeous to imagine that everyone has their own hang-ups, but it's true. What do you see when you look in the mirror?

  1. I'm horribly camera-shy too, but that's because inside I still feel like the ugly duckling teenager I used to be. Silly for a woman my age, isn't it. I figure you only go around once, so rather than dwelling on what you perceive as your shortcomings, make the most of what you've got.

    By the way, I love that dress. I'm a big fan of anything owl-themed.
