Back to Mom, she bought this unique piece for me because she thought it was pretty and she thought it had to be cool! Unlike my sisters I never say "I don't want it" to my Mom. I always take the piece and find a way to work with it. There was once a pair of Lamb and star print pajama pants, and not when I was five or ten or even 18. No she bought me Lamb and Star pajama pants at age 22. I took them and I wore them, they were kind of comfy actually. That's how Mom and I work.
This sequin tank wasn't a complete wash out, there was potential. And so this morning I decided I was going to wear it. I tried on three outfits, each a variation with this top. Nothing worked. Finally I gave up grabbed a white tank and tailored wide leg jeans and left for work. These pieces were part of the three outfits I had tried to work with. the tank had defeated me.
Sorry Mom, I tried. Anyway the tank is back in my closet, and taunting me once again. I WILL try again. As for my Mom and all her good intentions, I welcome every piece of clothing she gives me and simply see them as a new fashion challenge. She keeps me on my toes!
