I was genetically blessed (thank you Mimi and Big Daddy) with good legs, they are strong and thin but shapely without me having to do one single thing to keep them that way...but don't hate me, because on the flip side, I despise my arms. Not only are they wimpy (could not do a pull-up if my life depended on it), they are attached to broad shoulders and have no definition no matter the amount of stupid bicep curls I force on them. Now... put those two together in a maxi dress, and no matter HOW CUTE the dang dress is, they all hide the legs and show off the arms. BOO. I found this one yesterday at Kohl's, which I LOVE because
1. it's black
2. it has wide enough straps to wear an actual bra
(I'm genetically blessed in some other areas that make spaghetti straps a bit tricky)
3. it's a great fabric
4. it is on sale
Or not... because when I try it on, even though it fits perfectly ALL I SEE ARE ARMS.

So, I'm trying to talk myself into stepping out of my box... add some cute turquoise jewelry, a fabulous pair of shoes and ARMS BE DAMNED. Do I dare?
