“I don’t want anyone touching your hair. Just wear it curly until I get back.”
This, I hear from my hair stylist, when I learn he will be in Vegas for a hair show — before the black tie event on Saturday. My hair looks good – when the wind is blowing just right. Except for the crush he has on my husband, Lanny is vital: he has for ten years consistently NOT given me that “just had a haircut look.”
I just don’t have time for all this “fashion” stuff. Not interested. The other day – the day of my 12 things I don’t like about Motherhood day, (I guess I won’t be getting that Mother of the Year Award afterall), I looked for a shirt for 10 minutes before giving up. I found it later, when I was THANKFULLY, putting on my PJs. I had been wearing it the entire day.
Nothing fit my in-between size 6-8 petite frame at Banana Republic. If my fashion consultant hadn’t been there to tell me No, I would have bought those jeans that were too short, just so I didn’t feel as if I’d wasted a trip to the mall. See, she’s already saving me money.
My own What Not To Wear saga continues on Wednesday, when I meet my fashion consultant again to find that perfect suit. And now, we have to add the problem of finding this cocktail dress, and shoes — before the black tie event on Saturday. (I don’t think any of my maternity gowns will cut it this time.) My friend Jen gave me a gorgeous, flattering halter dress to borrow – but it’s too big. Too bad, it would have been fun to wear it and remember her at the same time.
I don’t know, the deeper I get into this, I think wearing yoga pantsall day is the way for me. They’re not just for yoga – they’re black, they hide all the dirt from the 4 boys, and they stretch when I’m chasing them around the house. Suits me.
But I’m running out of clothes. But I do like the idea of having fewer clothes – paring down to just a few that fit me well – if only I could find them at the mall.
Instylesays most designers swear by this underwear? Cosabella Low Rider Thong?They say it builds a solid foundation for a flattering fit. Hmmmm.
Lucky for me, there are blogs to help guide me. Here’s an article that sounds intriguing: Looking great and feeling great at 40+. Don’t you just love the sound of that? I’m reading that. And I do like the way the Urban Socialite mixes the latest fashion with current events and art.
