While we are on the subject of uniforms...

(This picture has nothing to do with this, but you know me and my posting without a picture phobia....so here's another "me and my camera" shot that was already on my computer.)

I should make you feel a little better about yourself.... my DEAR PRECIOUS SISTER entered my story for the TLC TV show "What NOT to wear" last year! Can you believe that? She didn't tell me for a while, but then one night when I was leaving her house she gave me that little "tidbit" as I was walking out the door. And my mom gets so sick of seeing me in the same clothes all the time that she will randomly give me a new shirt, jeans, or shoes. She once gave me a pair of shoes under the condition that I had to throw the old ones away so that she would never have to see them again. I guess you could say I'm sorta the family style outcast, who happens to designs children's clothes that people like....weird huh? I think the stuff I have isn't so bad, I mean everyone likes jeans and most of my t shirts are cute, but what gets them is the fact that I have the same 3-4 outfits that I wear over and over. I don't know why I do that really, I just really like my comfy clothes and I don't like shopping or trying on new stuff. LOL! So there it is...I've come clean!

Eh, think how much money you save, which can then be spent on fabric! Come on, we both know what's really important here. :D

You sound just like me! My sister has asked me if I would kill her if she nominated me for What Not to Wear. I too have no clothes. My husband has 3 times as much on his side of the closet as I do mine. :P but people love the things I sew! Lol!

You are making me feel so much better! I mean I love style, I know what looks fabulous but own nothing fabulous myself! I actually where the SAME pair of jeans almost every day...so sad! And not only that, they are Walmart jeans! And yes, just like the previous post, fabric is all I want anyway!

Oh you're so pretty in real life! I love your strawberry red hair! Wear what makes you happy, what makes you comfortable, I like to call us dumpy frumpy moms with style!

I have tons of shirts that I've sewn for myself, but I still only wear about 4-5 of them. They're my favorites, and I can't just leave them hanging up for too long or else they'll feel unloved. ;0)

You're not alone! There's nothing like jeans. I don't think just cause we're casual we are frumpy...on the contrary, we're ready-for-action, all-weather and non-comformist mums who don't feel that our identity needs to be in vogue with Vogue. I like this post-consumerist stage of my life...back in my lady-in-waiting days I felt insecure without lipstick. So glad I wisened up!

PS Agree with everyone else that you are very pretty.

You're just being a good steward of what God has given you by not spending more on unnecessary clothes! :)

I hate shopping for clothes, trying them on and I'd rather shop for other things :)
