Arty Slick – Day 29
Reasons why this outfit could work for any mom –
Comfortable — Pleather is a mom’s best friend. I could drop a bowl of spaghetti on my pants, scoop it back onto my plate and keep eating without the slightest worry my pants would stain. All substances just slide off the black “material” as if you’re wearing a repurposed treadmill belt.
Cheap — Possibly the least expensive outfit I’ve worn all year. I got the top and pants at Forever 21 for a combined fifteen dollars (ten dollars for the shirt, four ninety-nine for the pants). Plus, I’m borrowing the shoes which means they’re free unless I somehow ruin them.
Forgiving — The shirt is so long in the back that it can hide all manner of things you don’t want shown to the world. But it’s short in the front so it has the illusion that you’re proud of your junk and want to show it off — it’s the ultimate bait and switch shirt.
Reasons this outfit wouldn’t work for most moms –
It’s insane — I wore this outfit doing errands today and I felt positively ridiculous. It was raining today and I was walking around people in slickers and rain boots.
So, once again, I’m not sure if the outfit is Arty Slick and once again, I’m not sure if I should give it another go — like save it for a date night outfit.
Or did I just have “Forever 21 Fever” and maybe I shouldn’t have bought it in the first place…. Thoughts?
