HNT-Back to Whatever...

It's that time of year when I take all the Limelets back to school shopping. Sometimes I try crazy things on just to amuse myself, which is somewhat absurd because I really don't enjoy clothes shopping. I dislike it mainly because ever since I developed hips and breasts when I was 11 I have had a hard time finding things that fit comfortably (Excuse me do you have anything for a curvy girl child who is not even 5 feet tall and that is age appropriate for an 11 year old?). As an adult I hated worrying about being stylish and so I basically didn't worry about it. Since I have gained a fair amount of weight in the last year or so it's even more aggravating. Most of the time shopping is an exercise in finding something that merely doesn't make me want to gag when I look at it on me.
So, imagine my surprise when I picked out this wild green dress made out of two scarves and tried it on just to be silly and not only did I not turn a nauseous green upon inspection of my reflection but kinda liked what I saw. It hid the bits I am self conscious about and sorta did nice things for the bits that ain't too shabby. I was pleased.




Sing it with me now....I feel pretty, oh so pretty...



HHNT
*Epilogue: I did not purchase the dress because it was actually too small for me (I couldn't even close the top all the way), I don't actually have any place I could ever wear it, and it cost more than I could afford. But for a few minutes it felt nice. And please, I am not fishing for compliments with this post....just being a little naked in exposing my thought life.

Ooh Lime I say were going back, I want that pink one on the back wall!

You look gorgeous, girl!

HHNT!

lecram sinun said...

You totally should have bought it! HAWT! Cheers and Happy HNT!

24crayons said...

so, if you can't close the top all the way, does that mean the breasts would be pushed up closer together??

Should have gotten it!!!

HHNT!

MONA said...

Wow! a dress actually made of two scarves. That is very creative & a good creation too.

Green becomes you Lime! As Usual. :)

TUG said...

I think the dress looks just fine without being able to close the top ;) HHNT!

Dorky Dad said...

OK, wait. Am I NOT supposed to compliment you here? Does that mean I have to think of something else?

Hmmmm ...

Well, I'd say that the camera phone came in handy, I see. I have one, even though not long ago I swore I'd never get one because they'd be totally useless.

Snow White said...

Hot, hot, hot!!! Happy HNT!

Osbasso said...

Oh, so pretty!

Blissfully Wed said...

You may not be fishing for compliments, but you're getting them.

Your shots are always pretty and intriguing, but this one makes me think words like: "fetching" and "sultry" and "arousing." Too much? ;)

Anyway, you are way beautiful and I love that dress. Thanks for sharing.

HHNT!

Shibari said...

very sexy... Love that dress...
hugssss

Lapis Ruber said...

Thanks for the interesting insight - and the nice pic too. HHNT

barman said...

I say this not because I have to but that dress looked awesome on you Lime. It sure is a shame you could not just have it altered a little to fit your ample assets. Everyone deserves a little indulgence from time to time especially when you have a hard time finding something that works for you. I am sure you can find something to do with that sexy dress. :)

I really love your HNTs. Tie-dye of not, they always are wonderful.

Happy HNT Lime.

Shari said...

Sharp dress!! What store was it? Does it come in blue? It did look great. Too bad you couldn't find a slight flaw in it to get a discount on the dress. I hate that when you find something that looks good on you and not the mannequin or catalog model and it's too expensive. Ugh!!

HHNT.

sudiegirl said...

The top was supposed to close further than that?

Wow.

I need a dress like that...at one of my last gigs, one of the old ladies said my costumes needed to be more elegant, and in the same breath she said, "And for GOD'S sake, show 'em your tits."

Senior citizens crack me the hell up.

Polt said...

"I feel pretty, oh so pretty, I feel pretty, and witty and GAY!!!!"

Or is that just me.

Liked the dress, sweetie. The boobage was impressive.:)

HAPPY HNT!

KFarmer said...

I think you look simply ravishing. You are a knock-out~ and don't forget it :)

airplanejayne said...

every year you buy back-to-school clothes for the kid(s). When was the last time YOU got a BTS outfit? Don't YOU have to drive them to school? Don't YOU have to go to B.T.S. night? Don't YOU have to go meet teachers? the kid's friends? hel-LO!?!?!? You deserve the dress!!!! Go buy it!

Bunny said...

You look fabulous in that dress! You've got beautiful, sexy curves - va-va-voom!! HHNT!

MizMouthy said...

Whatta great dress! And.. huh-loooo Va-Va-Voom sums it up alright! Gorgeous :) Thank you for sharing with us!
HHNT!

Logophile said...

Oooooo,
defintely a nice try on.
Pretty and witty and bright, that's you, girl

Blither said...

My oh MY!!

Stunning! Simply stunning.

I'm jealous.

Smiles my dear.
HHNT!

witnessing am i said...

You should splurge, go for it. You deserve it, buy it, make it yours. Nobody is noticing what isn't buttoned up and it says alot if you felt good in it. "It hid the bits I am self conscious about and sorta did nice things for the bits that ain't too shabby." That is a good thing.

Wear it . . . out to dinner. Wear it to the grocery store -- just for fun.

tkkerouac said...

You look stunning, embrace those curves, Great colour
happy HNT!

~Tim said...

Why do you think the top needs to be closed more than that?

HHNT!

Indigo said...

absolutely stunning. I wish I looked that good in two scarves!

Dan said...

I know you're not fishing for compliments with this post. So I won't tell you how awesome you look in that dress.

Oh my God! :)

BTExpress said...

HOT, HOT, HOT you sexy girl. I love the dress too, especially the part that doesn't close. ;-)

P M Prescott said...

Hold on a minute I have to put my eyes back into their sockets. Okay.
Thanks for coming by my blog and offering condolences it was appreciated.

jillie said...

VavavaVOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMM woman! Look at you in that dress!!!


Love the shirt you did for Galen! I have been getting A LOT of compliments on your shirts especially at therapy....

They didn't understand when I told them I gave lemon to lime to get this shirt. They're STILL trying to figure that one out....lol!!!

Jade said...

Bravo to you for posting yourself in the dressing room. I have a theory that they put in lighting that makes you look twice as wide and then force you march out into the great wide open so that everyone can see your massiveness. I usually just buy things and then try them on at home. But you do look stunning in the too small, overpriced scarf! work it girl!

Breazy said...

Wow girl! You look great in that dress. I detest shopping for clothing because as you mentioned I have always been very short and I have a bubble butt so things are hard to find for bubble butted, short legged girls. I always had to buy my pants/shorts to fit my butt while the waist was always just a bit to loose.

I do love you in the dress!

HHNT!

Moosekahl said...

I LOVE that dress and if they have it in the right size I would go back and get it and MAKE a place where you can wear it! Love ya

RennyBA said...

No fishing - why: as you know I love fish (even heads and tails:-)

Btw: I just love the way your expose yourself while thinking!

M said...

Me thinks you need to call a babysitter, make a date with your husband and wear that dress!

rose_michelle said...

I think the dress is beautiful. I too hate shopping for the same reasons, all "girls" no height so everything has to be altered. It costs more than it's worth sometimes.

barman said...

For some reason I have been thinking about what you said so I had to come visit again.

You know it amazes me the more that I think of it. There are more than a few people that fit into the same category as you, most noticeably being short by todays standards more than anything and not rail thin at the same time so you do not make it into junior fashions.

So why doesn't someone cater to just that body style and try and keep it affordable. I would think they would do pretty well once the word spread. And I think you look awesome period. I get the feeling it has something to do with the inner you shining through which is even more stunning than the outer you. I hope that came out right.

TLP said...

Lookin' good! GOOD!

Stepping Over the Junk said...

HOT HOT! You should have bought it. I am about to shop for my kids before school starts. They are still at an age where I can shop without them and they dont care what I pick out for them. So far anyway.

Tommy said...

All I can say is thank God for 2 sizes too small and women with curves. You are beautiful from the inside out, Michelle. If I lived near you I'd buy the damned thing just to see that smile. Love ya!

I may need to borrow those pics for a future post.

HUBBA HUBBA..America's Next Top Model is.........LIME!
Awesome, I need a cold shower.

Cosima said...

Sexay!

When will they ever make clothes that fit? Women have curves, but all they do is design clothes for the smallest size and then add some inches.

How about giving it to a tailor? Maybe he/she can make some alterations?

Flash said...

YOWZA! You got a smoking body on you!

Thank you so much for sharing that HNT....

Yowza!

Boysenberry said...

Ummm, don't take this the wrong way, but PHWOAR! :D

Chuck said...

I haven't visited your blog in, like, forever (sorry) but I just got to say....Damn girl, you looking fine! I've missed seeing your HNTs. I'll have to go back through the archives. Got to get me a Lime fix!
