I overheard something the other day that really made me stop and think. A woman on the subway was chatting excitedly with her girlfriend about her upcoming wedding; the dress, the church, the reception hall, etc. After awhile, the topic of conversation gradually shifted to fashion (as it always should), and the friend asked the bride-to-be what she was going to wear to dinner with her new fiance on Valentine’s Day. I was absolutely floored when the blushing bride replied, “Oh, I don’t worry about dressing up for him now that I have the ring.”
Now, don’t misunderstand me; I’m all for equality in a relationship and your significant other accepting you as you are. Having said that, I also firmly believe in keeping the flame of passion lit and one of the ways to stoke the fire is by taking care of your appearance. Even though I’m married now, I still make it a point to get dolled up for a night on the town or even for a cozy night at home, which my husband loves because it shows that I still want to make a good impression on him.
Whether you’re on the first or the thousandth date, this peplum top by The Thicky Chicky will make a great impression! Crafted with love, it’s perfect for curvy girls who are ready for romance. A combination of a red polyester/Spandex blend peeking out from underneath a sexy black lace overlay, all topped off with a heart-shaped window into your, um, soul.
Oh, and did I mention it’s only $20.80? So make sure to treat yourself to a relaxing facial or heavenly massage so you’ll be fully rested and refreshed for whatever curve balls Valentine’s Day throws your way.
