I do a “Question of the Day” via social media Monday – Friday. Last week was “funny week” so I asked “What is your most embarrassing moment?” It occurred to me that telling my most embarrassing moment in a blog post would be much more fun that jotting it down in my feed. So, here we go.
I have this brown convertible dress. Convertible dresses are a skirt and two wraps, so-to-speak. You can make your dress a halter top, criss-cross, regular, strapless, and so on. You can completely lose yourself in the dress, get trapped in it, or you can fall right out of it. These dresses are a fine art.
One day I decided to go strapless.
On this day I was also doing a family photo session.
Sometimes when I get an idea I attempt it no matter the cost. Wearing this dress in general is risky. During photo sessions I am up, down, bendy, straight, in trees, and in the grass. I need tops I can count on. So why I decided that day was the day to attempt the most risky form my convertible dress could take, I have no idea.
I arrived at our session location and happened upon a good friend before meeting up with the clients. Almost immediately she leaned in and said “Kaia, I can see your boob.” It seems that the wrap around technique I tried shifted ever so slightly, revealing a peek of one of my ladies. I suppose I should be grateful I ran into her before I met my clients and I’m sure you’re thinking my punch line involved the whole thing coming undone, but for a girl who wouldn’t so much as wear a v-neck…
My eyes almost popped out of my head and my cheeks burned red. I think I mumbled some scattered and incoherent mumbo jumbo as my fingers attempted to amend the situation despite the immediate tremor that took over them. After that I hurried away from my friend and into the nearest bathroom. I switched the dress to a halter, my safest option, and moved on to my session meeting place. I was still shaking and pink when I got to the door but they were in such a mad rush I had plenty of time to talk myself out of my horror before we got started.
Since then, I have banished that dress indefinitely to my closet. And now I wear v-necks instead 😉
I also am embarrassed all over again having told all of you, so perhaps you would be so kind as to share with me…
What is your most embarrassing moment?
My second most embarrassing moment is coming up next 🙂
