I get anxious about many things. This happens easily and often very quickly, until it escalates into me freaking out about nothing and dear Nate rationalizing me back into being calm. Not that I am terribly anxious about it, but Nate's company Christmas party is next Friday and I feel as if I have nothing to wear. That, of course, isn't true. I have plenty, oodles, to choose from. What I want to wear is something chic and fashionable. What I have to wear makes me feel a little bit like Maria from Sound of Music, going to a ball in a dress you whipped up an hour ago from a perfectly aged bedsheet. It's probably the softest thing in the world, but I still feel like everyone is judging me, like they would be able to know it's a bedsheet.
Now this is what I picture in my head: something adorable and totally vintage ( found here ). That's really chic right now.
And completely out of my price range. So, it's off to the basket of UFO's (Unfinished Objects for you out of towners) to piece together something that will be adorable, and it will be so very me. I just have to feel odd about it first. Mind you, this sort of worry over how people perceive me no longer happens at college or at my workplace. Just in places where I am new and people don't know me, or I am unsure if they will accept me for who I am. The eccentric costumer fiancee of a respectable accountant. This entire ramble is just for me to pull up my garters and accept who I am. The eccentric costumer. I dress beautifully, fashionably, and it's either thrifted, vintage, or handmade from thrifted vintage linens. So HA! Take that insecurity!
