This is also the outfit I wore to a recent audition where in the middle of it I took off my boot. To be fair, it was relevant and part of the scene, but I don’t think they expected me to do it. Nor to continue the rest of the scene waving my boot around.
I got excellent feedback from that audition and they were “impressed with me.” That seals it, I’m taking off my boot at every audition from now on.
In photos I can sometimes appear chic and perhaps stylish and put together. Sometimes I even fancy myself to actually be that. But really, I’m the girl who rushes out of the bathroom because she’s late for the acting class, slams her finger in the door as is shuts, and plunks her butt down ungracefully on the couch, and then realizes that her fly is undone.
Yup. Grace Kelly would be proud.
Leaving the checkout, I notice the lady in the next aisle looking at Baby Girl snacking on a single serving bag of chips shaking her head. She then looks at me with a dirty look. Totally ticks me off when women judge each other’s ability to mother. Lady, what do you know?
Yes, maybe once a month Baby Girl gets a single serving of chips all to herself. There is nothing wrong with that. And perhaps, you should compare our shopping carts before you shake your head at me.
Mine: Kale, beets, cucmber, avocado, mixed nuts, bananas, almond milk, rice ice cream, apples, lemons, fresh chicken breasts, drumsticks, bag of basmati rice, cashew butter, eggs.
Hers: McCain frozen meal, Frozen pizza, white wonder bread, big hunk of cheese, bag of cookies, sandwich meat, some frozen cooked meat, ketchup, lettuce, tomatoe.
I wasn’t judging you before *because I just don’t care* but I certainly am now.
You know what they say about people who live in glass houses right?
Don’t be throwin’ no s@#t around!
Playing with different trends and styles. Experimenting with different perceptions of self and different sides of various aesthetics. These are the things I love about fashion.
But there’s also something serenely and peacefully perfect about a homecoming. A homecoming to that outfit that best defines you. An outfit that really reflects to the world who you are at your core. The outfit that feels just like the worn in jeans, a cup of hot chocolate, or that home cooked meal your mama made.
A floral dress, jean jacket and boots. That’s my fashion chicken soup. It just doesn’t get any better.
This is me world.
