Someone Could've Said SOMEthing...

Dear Family,



Just so you know, I can take it. I mean, I'd rather you tell me than I walk around all day, oblivious, while people avert their eyes and snicker about me around corners while I'm standing there on display. I mean, I'd snicker about me around corners too, but then I'd muster the courage to confront the poor unsuspecting soul and put her out of her fashion-faux-pas misery. Then I'd laugh at her around another corner. But at least I'd have told her.



I will be hanging the following on my bathroom mirror:

Fashion rule #1 - do not wear a light-colored bra under a thin, red top.

OH, Laura...it's been awhile.I've been on a rather long hiatus...but I'm back in time to catch a fashion faux pas. Honestly, I didn't notice until you pointed (no pun intended) them out. I was too taken with the shiny bead work across the top of your shirt...loved it. Then mine eyes were arrested by the GREEN/GOLD your husband was sporting. And I thought (having grown up in WI) "What is The Pack without Favre? Is The Pack by any other name the Jets?" Then I went back to reading Shakespeare to my 10 year old....

Trick: Wear beige color, the same as your skin, especially when you are wearing white. I wouldn't have noticed either if you wouldn't have said anything:)

I stumbled across your blog this evening, and here I am, what,2 hours later, still reading...that is a compliment! This will be the first blog I have followed! I am a new homeschooler, quickly becoming an unschooler, and it is because of interesting people like you! Really enjoyed it!!
