I don't know about you but I was not a confident teenager.  I grew fast and it took a long time to be comfortable with my height.  I had massive glasses, braces, no idea how to deal with my waist length hair or how to dress.  I wasn't a shrinking violet, but I wasn't about to make myself standout in a crowd.

Over my 20's I slowly developed more of a sense of style and more importantly a sense of self.  I have come to feel very comfortable and confident in my own skin.

So tonight I'm attending a charity dance event clad only in a corset and tiny, tiny skirt, fishnet stockings and my super cheap long black gloves.  Those who have seen the outfit say it looks great and I have to say I feel super sexy and fantastic in it.  It is the kind of thing that as a teenager I could never have imagined myself wearing, so while others may think it just looks good, to me it represents just how far I've come in feeling comfortable with myself.

  1. Oh I love this post, that's fantastic! I was an extremely shy, PAINFULLY shy teenager and I am amazed how far I have come in terms of confidence in my 20s. x
