Partum Me?! Laura the stalker

By Laura |

Hello there, beautiful.  I’ve been watching you for a while, now.  Half black. Half white. Curvy and tight in all the right places.  You embody all of my fantasies.  I imagine long walks with you, as people turn to look at how amazing we are together.  And after a wonderful day of just you and me taking in the world around us, I can bring you home and shut you in my closet all safe and sound until the next time I want to feel the excitement of being with you.  Don’t be scared in the dark while you wait for me to bring you out again.  There will be others in there with you and I need to give you each a time to shine.  I’ve waited a long time for this fantasy to come true.  But you finally went on sale and I bought you.  In 7-10 business days, you will be mine.

Wait…what did you think I was talking about?  It’s the dress, people.  THE DRESS.  I have been in love with her for months, now.  Ever since she first went up on the website.  I looked at her and thought she was the perfect way to say, “Hey, I’m a mom of a toddler, but I’m also THIS.  Bam!”  At first, I didn’t buy her because I wasn’t quite where I thought I should be in order for her to look flattering on me.  So I’ve sort of had her in the back of my mind when I do what many women do and imagine the clothes I’d like to be able to wear.  And once I got to the point where I thought I’d feel comfortable, I figured she would probably go one sale soon so I should just wait and get the deal.

But she didn’t go on sale.  For three long and agonizing months I waited, stalked, and peeked, checking the price multiple times each week.  Then, yesterday, as I perused the big end-of-summer-sale I saw HER.  $20 dollars less but still just as beautiful as ever.  Perhaps I’m a late bloomer, but this was the first time I had every truly stalked a piece of clothing like this.  The dress embodies a goal that has been met and a point at which I actually feel like I can wear something like this and feel comfortable in it.  I’m all for women dressing however they’d like at any size or shape, but I knew that I’d just sense when the right moment was for me and her to be together.  And that time is now.
