Nope, you're not alone. In fact some friends of mine even wrote in to Suave and let them have it for giving out free coloring books to kids showing how sad and tired their mommies looked and how she would be so much prettier and happier if she just used their product. gRRRR!
And like you, I don't see any reason to be "dressed to the nines" for a trip to the playground that's gonna get covered in dirt, juice and whatever else my kid digs up. :p
however, I've NEVER been a slave to fashion or brands. I wear what fits me and I feel comfortable wearing. Sorry marketing executives, my momma raised me to be comfortable in my own skin. ha ha!
