Just a quick post! Have you been over to my blogging buddy Carolyn Kisloski's blog Holding Hands and Sticking Together?
Yesterday she had a very funny post about teacher pictures and the clothing we used to wear. Her sweater was a classic. Well, I pretty much laughed the entire time and then it hit me. I have some gems from my wardrobe too! I cleaned out my closet last week and I couldn't believe what I've held on to and hate to admit I still wear these dresses for certain occasions. You need to keep in mind that I don't have daughters who would probably throw themselves in front of the door before they let me be caught ruining the family's reputation in these get ups. After you see the dresses you'll understand.
No, I have boys. Yep, they pretty much don't care about mom's wardrobe and so they let me leave the house with bra straps showing, slips hanging below my hemline, hair askew, one earring gone, crooked buttoning, you get the idea. Thank goodness for our young, adorable secretaries and teachers who help me pull it all together at school. I walk into the office before school starts and it's like a swarm of fairy godmothers swoop in and magic happens! It doesn't last though and by lunch I'm covered with glitter, paint and stickers that are not where they should be-which, by the way, my boys don't comment on either.
Ready to see what I'm yakin' about? Here they are. There's a reason they call them moo-moos. The first dress is the one that I've worn for the first day of kindergarten. Both these dresses were hand painted and back in the day were kind of neat. Ok, so let's be honest, they were never fashionable.
Here's my Zoophonics dress. I thought it was so cute!
Well, I hope you had a good chuckle. I could have talked about my hairdos over the years but that's a whole different post! If you'd like to adopt me as your other mom and advise me on fashion I know that I for one, not to mention my friends, would be forever grateful!
Happy fourth of July everybody! If you haven't checked Carolyn's latest post get on over there and have a laugh! I think this would make a great linky!
