Tights: H & M divided- size XS (similar here)
I received this dress from the same reader that gave me the other amazing Banana Republic sheath dress. I'm not sure what I did to deserve her kindness but I am forever grateful. I love both so much and they fit me perfectly. I have met and gotten to know some truly beautiful people - both readers and bloggers and I just want to take this opportunity to say how much I appreciate anyone who reads, comments and takes the time to email/tweet/facebook me.
I want to address a couple of things in this post. In regards to a recent incident on another blog, I won't go into too much detail but I do want to say a few things. For all the nasty and ill-willed comments about me, you will not take me down. I did not get where I am today in life if I let negative comments and people affect me. I am saddened and very disheartened by how mean and just down right evil people are. You don't know me and you have no right to bash me. I understand everyone is entitled to their opinion and that is fine but to blatantly talk bad about me or my blog is unacceptable. I have put up with it for way too long and I won't stand for it anymore. I am only human and my feelings do get hurt. If you have a problem with me, please be an adult and show some respect. You can email me and voice your opinion directly to me.
It's so sad that in this day and age, there are still women who are not supportive of one another. It leaves me speechless. My blog is my own and if you don't like it, then you don't have to read or log on. I am who I am and my style is what I wear in real life. I love sharing deals, what I got when I went shopping and helping other women find clothes that fit. I have gone to great lengths to help my readers and other bloggers and enjoy doing so.
Blogging is not easy (my fellow bloggers can attest to this). We put ourselves out there in the world for people to judge and criticize. We pour our heart out into every post and some of us have a business or full-time job and families to take care of. I am a very happy and positive person and I WILL NOT let you "anonymous" and some non-anonymous commentators on this blog or others to make me sad. The more you hate me, the stronger I am. The more you bash me and put me down, the faster I get up. Just STOP it already.
A special thank you and great big hugs to so many of you (readers and bloggers- you know who you are) that personally reached out to me either through email or direct message on Twitter to show your support. I was so touched.
