Add a little something…more is more.
Not surprising to some, I LOVE color. I love fabulously bright things. For example, I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of a very special new bauble…a florescent pink top handle bag.
I literally dream about this bag. I have focused my entire Spring around this bag.
This bag is to blame for an outrageous shopping spree, both online and in JCrew. The JCrew sales woman actually personally emailed me after leaving the store to invite me and my friends for a “Homecoming Party” for my new bag. I had to have an assortment of brightly colored tees and sweaters (mostly in electric purple) to compliment my bag. Then I remembered that I can’t forget the neutrals! Oh, how beautiful my lady will look along side my linen colored sheer sweater and silk beige blouse.
I have planned vacations for my new little friend. I imagine us heading off to…oh reality hit me…no where.
I will be walking around Park Slope with my florescent pink handbag in winter boots and the same jacket that I wear every day. I will most likely be stuffing my son’s juice boxes, goldfish and dirty diapers into the luxurious leather frame. It will end up as unappreciated as most of us moms! It will get made fun of by my arch enemy co-op neighbors and be the laughing stock of the third street playground. WHAT!? Noooooo!
Oh, do not fret my little love muffin, I will protect you from the messenger bag meanies and the backpack bullies. I will stand up for you against the basic blacks and the always practical chocolates. I will parade you around Seventh Avenue like the jem that you are (Jem..is truly outrageous truly, truly outrageous JEM!).
Fabulous mommies unite. More is More. Don’t let anyone tell you different (well, except when it comes to make-up, please no zinc pink lipstick).
