I used to be like that when I was her age.
Now it's a struggle.
I'm super indecisive, I have no clue about fashion, and I'm short.
Super short, like 5'1 and that's a stretch, short.
Everything I love in fashion is made for 6 foot amazonian women with no waist, boobs, or butt.
I have the no butt thing ROCKED, but the rest, not so much.
I love floor length sun dresses.
I love skinny jeans.
I love boot cut jeans.
NONE of that looks good on a short person.
It just makes you look shorter, and weird-like.
I love a good heel but then my toes go numb and I walk funny and that look is SO 1987.
So I'm strolling the Hollister Co. store, Gap, Forever 21, Old Navy, H&M following teens around and I want to cry.
Where does a short almost 40 year old shop?
Most things don't fit right, or are too young for me. If it fits right, I look 85 instead of 40.
My mom who was with us is in her 60's and has a million times more style than me.
How does that even happen?
She's super hip too.
I mean we walk into Hot Topic and the music blaring on the stereo is a song SHE KNOWS.
I turn around and look to see who's singing and it's GRANDMA.
HOW do you know this song that's playing in this skater/goth/hip/ clothing store?!
Duh, it's "I Got You Babe." my mother tells me.
Okay it's a cover, but wow.
This is 40 huh?!
Clothes don't look good, I'm getting a neck thing my 6 year old likes to call a GOBBLE, and my 60-something mom is cooler than me.
