Avant-Garde – Day 13
It’s official. I’m switching this month to Arty Slick. I’d hate to say I’m an Avant-Garde quitter, but it’s just far too impractical for me. I’d be doing it more for a joke than anything else and that kind of defeats the purpose of my blog, which is to find styles that can actually and practically work for moms. Besides, I feel like I’ve only hit the mark on Avant-Garde once this month and that was on the first day.
I know there are Avant-Garde moms out there — Bjork is a mom, for example.
But she is also an internationally known singer so I think the whole Avant-Garde thing fits her lifestyle better than mine… you know me, who lives on a farm and if I wore a bird dress around our property I could actually be attacked by a coyote or taken away by a hawk.
So in the interest of ensuring my children still have a mother, I am switching to Arty Slick. It’s still not an easy style. It’s a lot of black… a lot of dry cleaning and a lot of big, pointy jewelry.
But I think I can do it. So that’s my big decision for the day. I consider it my “Syria.”
