Back when I was pregnant, I told myself I wouldn't be lazy and wear my pajamas all day when my kid arrived. I would attempt to stay as hip and cool as I was pre baby, which we all know wasn't that cool, so the bar was set low. I would shower everyday, even if that meant at 7pm at night, it would still count...IT WOULD. I would brush my teeth, I would brush my hair, cuz I'm not trying to harbor a gaggle of birds, I would pluck my eye brows, I would, ya know, be hygienic. That's easy enough right? Oh and I wouldn't wear mom jeans...I just wouldn't...even though Tina Fey made them look supah hot...I JUST WOULDNT...someone tell Snooki these aren't attractive...i worry her next pair of mom jeans will be so high they go up to her beady eye balls.

tumblr_mk1arnAXrS1runxeno6_r1_250 forward to one year post-baby, and I feel as if I've fallen into the cycle that plagues most new mamas with a baby beauty sucker. I went 14 months without a hair cut, got so frustrated that I chopped it off to that typical "mom cut"...ya know the one I'm talking about, the one that requires no effort and takes 52 seconds to dry...the one that you never see on celebrities? yup...that one. I forget I have eyebrows, until it looks like I now only have one. I brush my hair yes, but often times it goes RIGHT back in da pony tail for another day. I think I have showered everyday...but somedays it has been at bedtime...BUT WHATEVER MY SHEETS APPRECIATE MY DEDICATION....and my clothes well...this is what happens:


J.Crew? Psht...dry cleaning? No thanks. Anthro? Is it on the sale rack? Is it machine washable? Will be dog try and eat it? Can Luke pull something off it? Sigh, back on the rack. Target? Is it under 20 bucks, washable, and I can wear it 4 times before it falls apart? IN THE CART.


...I've faced the fact that my kid and/or future kids will dress better than me probably until they get to high school...maybe college...maybe their first job...maybe by then Anthropologie will have bought J.Jill or Coldwater Creek and I can be a fashionable middle aged lady with some sass. OH THE FUTURE POSSIBILITIES!! I shall still cling on to the dream of being that cool, hip mom with a this chic...

Arizona-Muse-J.Crew ....pipe dreams.

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
