I like to watch fashion shows (What Not to Wear, Tim Gunn's Guide to Style, that sort of thing). I think it is fun to watch them tear apart someone's wardrobe, and who wouldn't love for them to show up and hand you money to buy all new clothes? As a mother, especially since I'm a stay at home mom, I find I spend money on my boys, but almost never on myself. I have had to purchase a few new shirts because this body is NOT fitting in my medium shirts right now... nope no way am I fitting in a medium shirt while nursing... anyway!
I will admit that I fit into that "mother" look category. I live in capri pants or shorts depending on the temp outside (I have real jeans on today because it's chilly!). Almost all (say 95%) of my shirts are plain t-shirts (you know what I'm talking about those dressy-ish pull-over soft comfy shirts). I wear sneakers if I actually have shoes on my feet. I dress for comfort! I'm on the floor, playing in the sandbox and getting spit-up on... so I can't justify spending money on clothes.
I do think every once in a while that I should go update my wardrobe, but there are somethings that are "in style" that I doubt would look good on me. One that Richard and I were talking about this morning was straight leg pants/jeans. I can't imagine seeing me wear pants that fall straight from the widdest part of my hips, and I don't have huge hips. I know I should just go try a pair... but why?
Me, I'll stick with my comfy clothes and just assume I don't look horrible. Since I highly doubt that Stacy and Clinton will ambush me, or that Tim and Gretta will show up on my doorstep. I will just admit... a fashionista I am NOT!
Are you a fashionista?
