Dreaming of a Dress

Have you ever looked at something in passing and just had to take a second glance? Well that is exactly how it was for me when I got the March issue of InStyle magazine in the mail.

Purple Perfection. On the cover is Anne Hathaway and a beautiful Bottega Veneta dress. I am not sure what exactly it is about this dress but I have found my self starring at it for a week now. Some people have a love affair with shoes. I am a dress girl. Give me a girly dress and I am pleased as punch. When I look at this dress I imagine myself wearing it dancing & leaping in a field of red tulips and I am smiling from ear to ear as my laughter echoes across the field.

I think the true reason why I am drawn to this dress is because lets face it I have been busy with a baby and I have not worn a dress in over a year. At the moment wearing a girly dress is just not practical. Some times in life we loose ourselves because of the responsibilities and the day to day necessities. If we are lucky we might get a glimpse of who we are in an object that helps us find our way back to the person we have always been but were not able to see.

Well the dress has lit a new fire in my resolution of getting fit. After seeing the dress the first day I actually dropped and did 15 girl push-ups. I will say it hurt, but is well worth the pain. If a girl wants to wear a sleeve-less dress she has work to do on those flabby arms. Of course I would never shell out the money for this designer dress. I will say that there will be a dress in my future. In the mean time I am happy just dreaming of the possibilities of a dress.
