Reality Check?

Posted on: Thursday, May 27, 2010

Sometimes I think I'm cool...then I ask my sister.
Once again the little one proves herself to be cooler/funnier than I am. Below is her reaction to my latest purchase of jean overalls. I had to share, she's ruthless!

I have tried tirelessly to get on board to this whole 'blog' endeavour you've embarked on. For the most part, you've done well. Posts on turquoise accents and throw pillows are just fine, but this time you have gone too far. You have crossed the line from quirky style to "what the hell is she wearing" territory.
Overalls? Are you serious? Overalls were okay when we were in 4th grade and mom bought us pink corduroy ones from the gap, mostly because of our age, and also because they were freaking boss.
You are in your late twenties, you have to give up on the dreams of outfits past. You don't see me trying to resurrect my Limited Too sweatpants that said CHEER on the butt, do you? I'm not walking around trying to sport butterfly clips or tight spaghetti strap tank tops infused with glitter. Nor am i checking out Judy Blume books from the library and collecting beanie babies. I've moved on and so should you. Overalls are just out of the question.
You are not Angelica Pickles (of Rugrats fame) therefore, you are simply not allowed to wear this terrible fashion faux pas. You will end up looking like a crazy old bag lady who hasn't changed since 1989, or a psycho woman desperately trying to relive elementary school. You are a teacher, have some authority and stop dressing like your students.
For the most part, you know what your talking about when it comes to clothes, so stick to what you're good at; big necklaces and decorative pillows. Put on a dress, some eyeliner and have a beer. Grow up Peter Pan, we all have to someday.
