Who do you go to for a fashion opinion? In a recent survey I took, overwhelmingly Moms chose their daughters as the go-to gal for the honest opinion. Do I take the advice of the gal whose fashion staples are a pair of red sequin bling flats with purple socks lined in lime green topped with tutu and princess top? Gosh, my darling is a Betsey Johnson protégé! Maybe I should listen up.
Recently, my daughter explained to me that I wear too many jeans. I need to mix it up with grey and blue!? It came out of left field and I was taken aback that she paid attention. What about my tops I ask her? Well, as long as you don’t wear boy colors like green she says. I’ve got green all over my closet because I thought it matched my eyes. I did however, get the thumbs up for how I dressed when I go to my Ruby Ribbon trunk shows. Those she counted as “fashion clothes”. Woohoo!
Right now I can get away with being unfashionable. I’ve got three years I think. I will then become an embarrassment to my daughter and be told I must begin the arduous process of revamping my closet so I look appropriate when I attend her after school activities. LOL! I can hear it already. I’m looking forward to – yes your butt looks big, yes you look fat in that, you look so skinny you have to get them – comments she will bless me with. Brutal constructive honesty! I will look better than ever and get back in touch with the modern woman!
I love the honesty of my daughter. I can’t wait for her to tell me how I look. Just don’t grow up too fast baby girl! I can stand to be unfashionable awhile longer.
