Last weekend we had a family get together to see my sister’s latest film at a local film festival. My mom asked why I bother putting in so much effort into getting ready when I am just going out with the family. In my head I thought of a hilarious quote that always makes me laugh. It goes like this: “Why are you so dressed up? You’re not going to a fashion show.” BITCH THE WORLD IS MY RUNWAY GET OUT OF MY WAY.”
This train of thought does not happen everyday… believe me. Most of the time you will find me in my bathrobe, behind a computer with unbrushed hair and no makeup. That is my true comfortable style. But when there are worthwhile occasions, I enjoy getting dolled up. For example, brunch with my girlfriends, for work, or a date night with Brian. If you ever run into me on the streets on a typical day, you’ll probably catch me sans-makeup, in flip-flops. Hopefully not hungover, however that does happen from time to time. We are all human, right?
