Yesterday was Larry’s birthday so it was a special occasion. As you know a special occasion calls for a special dress and Herve Leger bandage dress was my choice. We went to Cantaloupe, an over the top French restaurant . The view was beautiful and we could see the KL towers which were lit in pink this month in honor of the breast cancer awareness. The restaurant was very pricey, a little pretentious for the food you get(ridiculously small portions) but the ambiance was great.
Coming back to Herve Leger, this dress reminds me of my shopping experience at Herve Leger Rome. The staffs were just so helpful and really nice. But I was surprised when the staffs told me that another customer from Russia does not want to come out of her fitting room because of me (we were only two customers at the time). I was shocked when the two sales ladies told me the story so I wanted to know why? “Oh she said because you have two kids and still look better than her” (yes I was with my husband and my two girls) . “I’m sorry she feels that way” was my answer as I didn’t really know what to say.
It seems that women like to make comparison and compete with each other. I don’t know why but even with a total stranger who happened to be shopping at the same moment in the same store? Plus, I know for sure I’m not the skinniest or the prettiest girl out there but I embrace all my flaws.
Don’t they say: “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”? Beauty can be a complex subject but ultimately the trick is to embrace all our flaws. God knows I can name all of my flaws!!!. Yet I’m convinced that the key is not to be perfect but to love yourself no matter what or do something about it when you are not happy. I don’t believe in going around comparing ourselves to others or hating other women who work hard for their look or who are simply more blessed than us.
What is your opinion about WE *women* embracing all our flaws? I would like to hear from you: It is important to be perfect or is it important to embrace your imperfections?
Thanks for reading.
