There are some looks that seem to strike a chord with people and this little, with an emphasis on the word ‘little’, dress really ticks a lot of boxes. But there’s a really fun story behind it which makes me smile as I think about typing it.
I have talked about it in the past but I was very lucky to get to go to a Torture Garden evening escorted by the wonderful and amazingly protective Cindy Conti from ‘Boys will be Girls’. I cannot praise her enough; not only has she created Sarah (I have no clue about makeup, hair or modern fashion) but she has encouraged me to get out and about, which I find terrifying but exhilarating. And it always amazes me immensely because she’s tiny; I’m always terrified about going out and she’s literally just ‘come on, I’ll take care of you’. And I believe her.
When we went out to Torture Garden I went for a full fetish/PVC outfit, keyhole tight dress, fishnets, killer heels and a PVC corset on the outside. I was, well, a little larger at that time but didn’t care as, cough, I was pretty much drunk (honest version; blissfully pissed) in order to step out of the door. In order to get into Torture Garden you have to dress appropriately, and Cindy had a gorgeous tiny faux-leather wet look dress on, which for me would have been just a belt.
Fast forward three years and eighteen months of insane dieting and exercise and at this session I put my smaller frame in Cindy’s hands for one of her always amusing ‘dealer’s choice’ outfits.
And she got me into the dress she had worn for Torture Garden, which I thought was impossible. What was even more gratifying is that we did without any under-garment shaping devices; no corset, just a bra and some panties.
I am going to admit I was convinced she’d never get it to fit, but I stood, a bit wobbly, corrected. And what a gorgeous outfit it was.
In addition, as I mentioned in the last blog post, I’ve got a little bit of cleavage and now I’ve shaved the gorilla fur it’s lot of fun to use my own swellings. A touch of makeup to accentuate the valley and boom, what a lovely effect.
But yeah, barely a belt. I couldn’t do any sitting pictures because you would literally be able to see my backbone. It’s also an outfit that I would love to wear out somewhere but I’m pretty sure I’d be a very popular girl if I did. Which is why I probably won’t do it….
Anyway, short and sweet, just like this adorable dress. Huge thanks as always to Cindy for letting me wear her stuff, now I can just about pretend to fit.
Stay beautiful and remember that there is no thing as too short a dress….
