The Dress!!

Oh the dress, the dress, the dress. Some women dream about what their wedding dress will look and feel like….I’m not one of those women. Instead, I dream about my Valentines Day dress!! What’s the big deal about some stupid Valentines dress you ask?? The big deal is finally being able to pull off a vision I have had in my head for over 2 years now. A vision that I have worked my ass off to try and achieve. I’ve ran miles and miles and tracked, tracked, tracked just to get me that much closer to this vision. And the time has finally come, and the vision is almost 3D completion.

I've never been a big Valentines Day person funny enough. I always thought it was ridiculous that there is a “holiday” in which you are supposed to show your partner nothing but love and attention and make sure that they know you love them so…….aren’t we supposed to do that pretty much everyday?? But, I have become a sucker for the V-day. It’s the one time of the year that my boyfriend & I splurge and go out to a fancy dinner. We go to Delmonico’s Steakhouse and get the steak and lobster meal, about $80 a piece. We normally have to wait, standing up, for about 3 hours just to be seated. The bar makes a killing on Frankie & I alone LOL. By the time we get seated we are starving and usually demolish our food in minutes. Then head back home in a food coma….But it’s all worth it!! We normally don’t have the funds to do Christmas and birthday presents for each other, so this is our moment to give to each other.

Plus, after knowing each other for over 10 years, it was a conversation on the phone Valentines Day night that made us realize there was something stronger between us, so its all kind of bittersweet.

Last Valentines Day, I was down maybe around 25 lbs and I was feeling pretty good. I found an old dress I had in the closet and I surprised him by wearing it to dinner. It really wasn’t anything special but he loved it! Now, I’m down 55.6 lbs….I can definitely trump last year!! So here it is….

This dress is exactly what I envisioned my self wearing a few years ago. It’s sleek and sexy. Just the right mixes of nice and naughty. I can’t wait to walk down those stairs, turn the corner, and see his reaction. This dress is 90% for him, and 10% for me…ok, maybe a little more than 10% for me, but being able to wear something like this for him really means a lot to me. I spent the first 2 years of us being together getting fat again, so being able to show off to him in this dress is a great sense of accomplishment.
My dress is about to be in the hands of UPS and should hopefully arrive to me soon. I’ll know a better date tomorrow. I’m really hoping that it fits and that the image I have in my head, which I have worked so damn hard for, comes out to be pretty close.  The dress also has that ShapeFX stuff in it to hopefully tuck and hide some of my "problem" areas, lol. I still have to go find some killer black stilettos. I’m thinking I’m going to bare-leg it, only because I’m afraid black back-seam stocking would over kill the dress. Any thoughts??

And of course, once I put the dress on, there will be a whole other blog about the dress again….with pictures of course! ;-)
