Yesterday I wore a very cute pink top (not hot pink Iwaya! so divert the line of thinking that you were headed for). Anyhu, a suttle pink tending to peach (that is the colour Mr. B2B, not the fruit). Its a lovely top, the problem is that it shows off a lot of my bust. A LOT!
Actually, for most chicks it would be okay but I have a big bust, have had it since high school although it got bigger after having Rhys. As a result of this display of a more-than-normal amount of flesh, I got the looks and lust filled smiles from so many guys. So not my thing but survived the day, continued being my confident self throughout the day.
This made me realise that since forever, I have never been one to show off ‘skin’, basically my body, prefering to wear trousers instead of skirts that would put my legs on display, long sleeved shirts of all kinds to cover up my arms and closed shoes, most of the time sneakers, to cover up my feet. To make it worse, they would be loose clothes. A good friend of mine, over the years has been slowly trying to turn me to the “dark side”. Sawa is one of those girls who has a beautiful hour-glass shaped body and a moderate bust size so she can wear almost anything because it looks good on her; from spaghetti strap tops, hipsters, sleek evening dresses to the most shapeless of dresses because her curves will still ‘shine’. It’s amazing. It is so much fun to walk with her and be entertained by guys’ reactions when they see her in one of her fitting outfits.
Whenever we go out shopping for clothes, she picks out for me the short sleeved shirts, really fitting trousers (she wouldn’t bother with skirts coz she knows me too well), strapless tops… basically taking me to her side of the ‘clothes wearing’. So gradually, my wardrobe has been transformed over the years to also include the “forbidden” type of outfits. And therefore, at the end of the day Sawa, I blame you for me buying the cute pink top that got me way too much attention.
Fact: Had I worn that top a couple of years ago and gone to the taxi park, I would have been undressed, literally. (Do you remember those days when that used to happen? Princess were you born by then?)
