Fashion

I am breaking out of my shell in terms of fashion. Shopping is so much less triggering than it was, and when I heard the script from my mom tonight, I shut it down! I now possess pants, sleeveless dresses, lower cut tops, and shorter skirts, all in professional taste and within my style. :D The coolest thing is that my friends know my style, and suggest things for me to wear. They bought me clothes for my birthday, and I was able to go shopping without guilt! It may not seem like much, but going from frumpy jumpers to current and hipster, and still feel good about myself is a huge step for me. :)

HealingHearts, let's do it! I love that store! How 'bout Forever21 and JC Penney? Better yet, since we're virtual shopping, let's just go to all the stores in the mall! We can afford Saks 5th Ave and Nordstroms, right? ;)

Thanks for being my cheerleader, hun.

Becoming Butterfly, your name is quite accurate for this topic. You are a beautiful butterfly on the inside that is now reflecting on the outside with your new fashion. Takes courage to change. Celebrating your feminitity (can't spell) without triggers and guilt. You go girl!
