This year, Mama Curve decreed that no kitchen of hers (or mine) would be ripped asunder for Thanksgiving efforts.
So we took our bellies and parked them at restaurant in Midtown.
I realize that no one is really talking about winter shorts this season, that doesn’t make them any less adorable. One must use more than just the trends to define their fashion choices, you know?
Speaking of trends, I’ve been enamored with animal caricature sweaters and wanted one I could wear at work and at play. I love the whimsy, but the ones I’ve seen are a little too twee.
Let’s be candid: I look like a cross between a Cabbage Patch doll and young Gary Coleman; workplace ageism is real and my fight for professional legitimacy never ends. So, where am I going in a fuzzy, pastel pink sweater with a baby chick on the front?
This sweater created an entry point for me. The Autumn-ready color and well place fox detail are great way to do the trend ‘quirky,’ not cute.
But meanwhile, all that carrying on about ‘cute vs quirky’ and I end up serendipitously styling my hair into bow.
This hair was a happy accident. I regret nothing.
Thanks for reading; Talk soon.
