Birthmarks and Stabbings

A throwback to early this Fall in one of my favorite dresses. I love this dress and it's black twin that I wear just as often! Which color do you like better? See the black version here

Also--take a look at the first picture, and look at my eye. Notice anything weird about it?

You may see a brownish red blob mark thing. In some lights it's brown, in others it looks like a blood red. What is it? It's just a birth mark. I've had it forever and when I meet new people I always get a question about it. Some people ask me right away, others wait til I've known them for weeks. 

"You have something in your eye." or "What do you have in your eye?"are the most common. I've gotten the question so many times that I'm tempted to answer with "I got stabbed--you should see the other guy" or something scary/clever like that. The mark has never been something I wish I didn't have. It's really only obvious when I look sideways or up. But I've never found it ugly--it's just a birthmark like anyone else has! I think it's pretty cool actually, because how often do you meet someone who has a red/brown mark in their eye that makes it look like they've been stabbed? NOT OFTEN! I must be special ;)

Now that is some good college essay material. Ha. Good thing I'm done all my essays (FINALLY).

Happy almost Christmas!!!!

  4. Whoa, I never noticed your birthmark Rory! Haha, that is way cool, I didn't know you could get one actually IN your eye. Way awesome :)
    I love this pretty dress, and while I like the white version, I do lean towards the black one...hehe
