Good News/Bad News

by Marinka on July 18, 2012

The good news is that I got a new dress for BlogHer and modeled it for my daughter.

“Do you like it?” I asked.

That’s where the bad news comes in.

“I like the color, but the shape does nothing for you. I prefer to wear more flattering clothes, like skinny jeans.”

Oh, did I say bad news? I meant terrible news.

Thank goodness I had this to cheer me up.

Oh, did I say cheer up? I meant seethe about.

Kids are so adorable.

Sounds like BlogHer is shaping up to be the second installment of “Carrie.” Marinka, bring a babushka just in case.

Kinda makes you rethink the whole Mommie Dearest approach to parenting, no?

I should be laughing at this but I have a mother who rocks skinny jeans … at 66. Stupid gene pool.

I think you and Wendi should shop for skinny jeans while at BlogHer.

..by the way, do jeggings count as skinny jeans? Because I could probably get THOSE past my thighs. (I hear they’re stretchy.)

You might be seething, but I’m reveling in the idea of invoicing my friends for services rendered.

Do you have a favorite template you use?

I’m a little discouraged by the clothes I’ve dug up for BlogHer so far. I don’t even need a teen to tell me “the shape does nothing for you.”
