Tuesday: A New Vest
For a long time, vests were a no-go.
As a child of the '80s, they conjured up images of Mary Stuart Masterson in a white tank and a schlumpy, oversized black vest (a la "Some Kind of Wonderful"). Or, worse, vests AND bowler hats.
Not really interested in revisiting that.
Luckily, the latest vest incarnations are much sleeker. To wit: This Georgie military-style vest. I walked into W Boutique recently and super-stylish Jessica was wearing it with a purple-and-cream, patterned shift dress. So cute. There was one vest left — it came home with me.
My borrowed look: H&M dress and Isabel Toledo for Payless shoes.
Why I can't buy fancy-dancy, dry-clean only clothes: One recent morning — after I had gotten dressed into work duds — Middle Child hugged me and immediately illicited an "Eeeeeeewwwwww!" from Oldest Child. I couldn't understand what the problem was, assumed it was 'tween meanness. Well, apparently Middle Child hugged me with with food on her face. After she pulled back, she plucked something off my shirt and put it in her mouth.
