Originally, this dress was to be worn for Fogerty's Red Night in Key West but had to wear a costume that night instead. So I thought that I would accessorize it and wear it as a costume to a Halloween party a friend had this past Saturday.
The second part of the story is the fact my weight is slowly creeping back and the original costume I ordered online did not fit me. (always read the fine print a Medium = size 2 thru 8) in what world is a size 2 the same as an 8?!?!?!?
I think the whip/pitch fork accessory really made the outfit. Actually it made it difficult to balance my drink, the camera and the whip. I kept taking pictures with my drink, sipping my camera and dropping the whip. It was a very confusing night.
I was going as a shot girl, and I realized two things... 1) my boobs will not look like the picture 2) the whole outfit's cuteness comes from the size of the boobs. I won't even comment on the racially insensitive message it sends to my people. Whoever those people are. But I am sure they would be offended, probably from the lack of boobage.
But the good news, is that the sombrero will be used as a chip bowl at my next family gathering. The bandeliers, not too sure about their use. More on those later.
