Feel Good About Yourself Monday
Adding on to the theme, do you remember any trace of self doubt when you were a kid? We love that little Jude felt like a pretty piece of flesh in her oversized Macker shirt. Look at that righteous little bobot! We also like that we felt no qualms in dressing as a dazzling yellow star, pointy top and all.*
And of course, the Hershey Kiss silver costume was a go-to. We spent hours. Days. Months. In variations of The Kiss Costume, the homemade Campbell's Soup Can Costume, and pretty layered wintery accessories (yes, we knew the importance of layering even then). All the while actually adding padding and lumps and bumps to our cute little selves. And feelin' pretty effin sexy about that.
*we distinctly remember receiving more than a few puzzled looks whilst in said star costume and also thinking what in the world is everyone staring at.
Sometimes we wish that we know now what we knew then.
