womens evening dresses

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.

The fact that Maggie’s wearing a suit in this picture

means so much to me. I’ve always hated wearing dresses and was never comfortable in them. It’s only recently that I’ve started gathering the courage to wear suits in front of my family and I’m still uncertain and scared about it each time. But to see this, a woman wearing a suit for a formal event, on a show like Supergirl just means the world to me. It’s not just a pantsuit she’s wearing to work or something like that, but a suit she’s wearing because she wants to dress nice for her girlfriend.

There are still so many people out there in today’s society that do a double take and stare when girls or women wear suits, with or without ties, as well as tuxedos. And to see Supergirl dress Maggie in a suit instead of a dress like many other shows would’ve done, makes me really happy. It’s helping to normalize women wearing something other than dresses. And quite frankly, this picture alone is helping me to realize that I have every right to wear a suit and I should be comfortable with my choice.
