I always wanted to be a cool girl in a leather jacket. My fellow 1990’s goth/ punks all had them. Black. With spikes and grommets and buckles. Maybe the cover art from a Black Flag or New Order album drawn lovingly on the back. But I couldn’t pull it off. I was too…. girly. More…
Actual adult shit
Has it been like 9 months since I posted? Where did time go? Why am I so busy? Well, between turning 40, planning endless birthday / HOA/ PTA/ dinner party events, shuttling my children hither and yon, gaining and losing the same 10 lbs over and over and a nice casual homicide trial…. mama has…
When life gives you lemons get some vodka
I’ve had a bitch of a week at work and finally got to the gym this morning (Yea!) and when I got to the gym realized I had left my work clothes at home (Boo!) and had only a sports bra and leggings. To wear to court (Fuck!). Luckily Target opens at 8am so…
WTF: the BEST pants
Girl: Hey, do you guys have some pants that make me look like I had my legs chopped off? Selfridges: Oh yea, these should do it. We patterned them off of the flappy ends of cheap suits. Me: WHY WHY WHY
A Mom on vacation is still a Mom. Wearing multiple layers and cooking in Iceland. The sun has already gone down at 4pm– and it didn’t come up until 10am. Brrrrr. I’m not making puffin, if you’re wondering….
What was the best store in the early 90’s? Where you could get rad tote bags, floral dresses, and pre-shredded tee-shirts- and where everything said ‘ESPIRT.” The last one closed near me in high school but I still have fond memories. And then, as if conjured by the elves said to inhabit the area, there…
Grocery store is not code for ‘wear sweatpants’
My rants against the slobbification of America are legendary. Flip flops are for the beach. Fleece pants are for being in your house with a cold. Oversized cartoon tee shirts are for never. see? Buying Halloween swag and some milk while not looking like I live in a van. Blouse, Ella Moss, velvet blazer I’ve…
Why you should shop all the time
First of all, I’ve spent the last two months curled in fetal position due to work stress. Not good. While I’ve still be dressing like a Boss, I just didn’t have it in me to take pics and I looked like a sad Zombie Mom/Lawyer. Grim shit. But it’s fall! And tights!! This delightful tweed…
I ‘accidentally ‘ set my OOO message to read I would be back in April. Oh and I bought this rad hat at the grocery store because beauty’s where you find it right?
After many long, angry months, the kitchen is done. I baked some bread. Then I ate the bread. Totally worth it.
TAKE ALL MY MONEY
During my weekly troll of favorite sites, I came across the most insane, perfect, WTF is it skirt at Jcrew.com It’s like a western-Gilded Age- cake topper with pink polka dot tulle. If I had $1000 laying around, this would be obvious best use of said money.
On Wednesdays We (Still) Wear Pink
Lurking in my aging body beats the heart of the girl who made ‘fashion violation’ tickets with her bitchy friends and gave them out in high school. Mean girls forever!
