ADLIB, BAMBUDDHA & NIPPLES

jul30 white dress7

For dinner at Bambuddha I wore my long adlib dress, one of my absolute favourites, my custom-made mules and my chanel-type bag from the Sandal Shop. I really like this bag to wear in beachy situations where I want this style but don't really wanna bring along three thousand pounds under my arm.

Is it me or am I getting a little bit brown : ) !!

My sister is a little puritanical about nipples, she'd rather pretend they're not there. Which led us to discuss the matter. I, for one, am a big advocate of nip exposure, they are natural and the lack thereof is not, and although I wouldn't go out of my way to find transparency in my clothing, I also don't go out of my way to hide things. As my mom put it, having nipples is better than not having them, and a mastectomy, she knows what she's talking about.

It is the truth: bras that make your boobs look like you have two smooth orbs make you look like you just stepped out of the operating table after an unfavorable diagnostic. Having a fully-formed body with all its parts intact is a wonderful gift, and the older I get the more I think that natural is best (though arguably, my opinions on this have remained a constant. I never pursued social conformity with my body, not when I was freakishly skinny in my teenage years and got bullied for it, and not when in my twenties it became an asset). I don't think of it and it only becomes conversation when someone points it out. I don't hide "natural" unless it is offensive or unsightly, which nipples most certainly are not. I also understand your position when you're coming from a world that is different to mine, and I respect it. Yet this is me.

Some shots from the restaurant- you might remember me and my mom both have this clear sapphire necklace. And I looooove it, it's the most magical thing!

I had the crispy duck with crepes as the main dish at Bambuddha which is always amazing. Sushi came first. The portions are quite big, me and my sister shared one and still had half left over.
