Fashion Week

I love the pictures snapped at fashion shows in New York City. Who doesn’t look good in a dress made out of Reynold’s Wrap? Perhaps I am bitter because I have had my hair in a ponytail for the past two weeks. It’s not the cute updo you may see Lauren Conrad sporting. (She actually has a tutorial on YouTube on how to put your hair in a stylish bun) Mine is more of the the “my kids aren’t dressed yet, I don’t have time to shower and we have to leave in 15 minutes” style.

I have heard mothers say they just get up an hour earlier so they can look presentable. I say, “Bite me.” I barely get enough sleep as it is. I am not setting my alarm at 6 a.m. to flat iron my hair. I may throw on an accessory to spruce up my attire. It could be worse. I could be one of those moms wearing pajamas in public. They have given up on life entirely.

One of the trends coming out of NYC Fashion Week is the Leather Harness. I’m pretty sure the PTA would throw me out if I sported a shirt with leather straps outlining my breasts. I am quite excited about the return of the fanny pack. (I’m not kidding. It’s one of the trends spotted on the catwalk.) Hell Yeah! It can distract the eyes away from my muffin top. Plus, I can put everything in that sucker! Have you ever tried to hold a dog leash, phone, keys and push your child on a bicycle? Just remind me not to call it a fanny pack in England. I will be in London the week after never. (A girl can dream though)

Unfortunately, these are Spring Trends which means I will have to use a purse until March. I wouldn’t want to wear a Spring fashion in the winter with my sweatshirt. Now that would be a real Fashion Faux Pas!
