Since I can’t afford to actually win the contest and go to New York to style a photo shoot (alongside a celebrity fashion stylist) for ELLEgirl (they probably don’t want Mom anyway), I thought I would unveil my new posting concept with a mock entry to the 2006 TJMaxx “Be a Fashion Stylist” Contest.
1) Henri-V was curious what I would pair my new converse with, so I thought I would show what I will probably wear this Friday morning. It’s all about the shoes. (Did I mention they are brocade?)
Parenthetically, I am getting really frustrated trying to manage all this tech stuff with my limited skills. Certain information keeps disappearing (I am not going after that MOPS link one more time!) Before I throw my hands up in despair, I had better just fill this page with words.
2) Parenting Conference. Officially, I am just an attender. Unofficially, I am part of the leadership team. That’s the reason for the navy blazer; it’s more traditional than what I normally wear. ( Sara you’ll like this: the jacket was $1 at Value Village. Also, the red wedge clogs: free for volunteering at fund-raising garage sale!) Styling outfits beforehand is something I always recommend, but rarely get around to; this project is good discipline for me. This one needs something.
3) A friend asked me to blog about what to wear on Easter. I have touched briefly on it and will, no doubt, do so again in the next week or two, but here’s what I would be wearing, if I were not scheduled to work in the nursery. (I will be in church, but I don’t care to sit on the nursery floor in a dress.) Unless it is really cold, however, I would wear ivory patent sandals instead of boots. (I just didn’t want y’all to see the scraps of blue toe-nail polish left over from last summer.)
