Punk Rock Parents: Looking over my shoulder

Looking over my shoulder

I have never ever been able to dress myself. I might as well be color blind when it comes to matching clothes. I have always always dressed for comfort over style. Mostly because I do not know the first thing about style. I stick with the jeans with a t-shirt and flip-flops or converse.

My BFF has been raving about her love for Stacy London and the show "What Not to Wear" on her facebook. She peaked my interest so I recorded a few episodes and watched. Great show but I am so the person they would ambush and teach how to dress. So now I am looking over my shoulder waiting for Stacy and Clinton to grab me and take me to a room where they throw away everything from my closet into a giant trash can.

So I have watched some more episodes and today while browsing I kept their tips in mind when it came to sleeve length and belts and stuff. This is what I thought worked. Did I get it right, or am I so far off?

Of course being the indecisive and the type who cannot spend money on myself without a lot of pushing from someone else I did not buy it. Instead I carried it around for about 20 minutes and then decided that the $20 could be better spent on something else. Oh well.

    Elissa... this is Ashley, Crystal's mysterious "roommate"! I just want to say that A) You look fantastic in that outfit, and $20 is basically chump change compared to how much you might spend on that ensemble somewhere else. And B) I absolutely adore that show... and TLC Channel in general.. and I actually nominated Crystal! She's just like you.. indecisive... well intentioned, but doesn't know what's right... and just will not spend money on herself. So, I say, treat yourself! You're a hard-working mamma and you deserve it!

  7. I love that show too. But I think I might smack Stacey with my chankla cuz she is kinda rude. I love Clinton, he is some hot gay booty. I have to say, I keep their advice in mind when I am out shopping. But I will never throw away my Vans and hoodies. Never!!

    And the outfit was hot, chica!
