Last month, I got in trouble during therapy. And not for the usual bullshit like my talking negatively about myself or being to stubborn to talk to my family. I had been feeling awful for a week and a half starting around Valentine's Day, so during a whole therapy session I told her why I felt bad around the holiday and boy did I get in trouble. She asked me when the last time I felt beautiful was. I gave her such a non-answer about my husband always telling me I'm beautiful, and she was having none of that shit, saying I needed to get in touch with my own femininity. It didn't help my case that I needed the definition on that... So after the appointment as per the usual, I told Richard everything. In the past we've tried shopping for clothes that make me feel beautiful at other stores before, so Richard straight up said we can buy clothes at my favorite clothes place, Hot Topic. I haven't bought clothes there in years.My first purchase at Hot Topic was last month. I bought red plaid combat boots, something I've wanted since I was a teen but just got around to at the age of twenty-eight. I bought two skirts, one that stops right below the knees (a celestial one) and one that stops at the ankles (a moon rose one). I have a skirtall which is like a pair of overalls but a dress. It's a little short, but I absolutely love it. If I want to wear it out I'll wear it out with pants. I bought a long sleeve shirt that all lace. It's black and looks beautiful over my black tank top. I also have a sheer bell sleeve moon duster. It's a little long, so if I want to wear it in my chair I have to hike it up. And last but not least I bought a dark red peasant dress. It hangs off the shoulders, and I wore it over my black tank top just in case, and I'm glad I did because I don't think I'd be comfortable just wearing the dress hanging off my shoulders like that. Plus I looked amazing in the photos.
