I am notorious for buying outfits for themed events – such as the Star Wars Party or 80s Rock Stars Party – and then not trying the clothes on until just before the event.
Sometimes, this results in a few snafus.
For instance, I got this lovely dress for the Teal and Lavender Party.
I’m going to tell you right now, how I managed to find the PERFECT dress is a total mystery to me, but there you have it, a dress with TEAL and LAVENDER!
I snapped it up.
Unfortunately, it didn’t REALLY come in my size so I had to hope that the forgiving cut of the design would accommodate my curves.
There I am, getting dressed in the hotel and I try to slip on the dress and OH GOD, IT’S STUCK ON MY BOOBS.
Sure enough, the dress was long and flowing but the under slip was tight and form fitting and I SWEAR I HAD TO STUFF MY BOOBS INTO THAT SLIP LIKE I WAS STUFFING A WATERMELON INTO A SAUSAGE CASING.
Fortunately, it made wearing a bra totally unnecessary.
I turned to look at myself in the mirror and that’s when I noticed. . .
The dress was pretty much see-through.
Yup, if you stared at it, you could see everything – my panties, my lack of a bra, my nipples, even my flipping belly button!
Now, what you need to know is that I had a second dress with me.
A long tie dye maxi dress.
So I technically COULD HAVE changed into that.
But I was so determined that I was going to wear that beautiful ombre dress that I refused to change.
Instead I brought the second dress with me as a “wardrobe change.”
I spent most of the evening sitting in the shade at the party, trying to hide my nakedness from the partygoers.
Until it came time to jump in the hot tub.
Then the clothes came off. . .
