When I asked her to pick it up, she harumphed, "Oh mom....you just don't understand fashion."
It's true. Many days, I am in my winter Mom uniform of my trusty blue jeans and favorite orange fleece sweatshirt combo. Or better yet, my kitchen aprons...I am NOT a slave to fashion. But her reaction inspired me to show Micaela one of the latest fashions, straight from the runway...
I could never wear this. Aside from the fact the it's HIDEOUS, I just don't have the style to pull off a scarf. Can I be honest and say that neither does she?
It would be my luck to sit behind THIS umbrella-head at church. I am a magnet for big-haired ladies....I was born in TX so I know a lot about "big hair"....but this at least has function.....
Fashion can be scary. This is proof. I do so love the houndstooth print, but I would have to tell her that because I'm afraid of her....Love those gloves, too. Very "fierce".
And this....? What can we say about this? That the dress probably weighs more than the model? That I would look awesome in this at the grocery store, cluthing my coupon box? Does it have pockets?
And this.....it would be soooo handy. You know, in case someone needed a wheel, I could simply say, "Here....have the one on my head!"
Oh, yeah. Micaela is soooo right. I don't understand fashion. And I'm good with that.
