My mom was sitting in my living room the other day & out of nowhere stated the obvious..."You haven't blogged in awhile"....don't worry mom, my time lately has been well spent trying to convnice a 3 year old to wear a dress to school. When I was younger I honestly thought that I would probably become a writer someday. You know, something along the lines of a Carrie Bradshaw in NYC but, before I knew it I was on a plane to Hawaii, got stary eyed over a boy, had some beautiful babes, &started sewing dresses. Little did I know my friends & family would line up to read my blog....well, here's to you Mom..the moment you have been waiting for since I was 4 years old...my payback has finally come!
Chapter 45: The ugly side of custom boutique
It's been a mysterious wonder to me how I ever ended up having my world completely revolve around dresses, children's clothing, &coordinating fabrics. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE what I do & wouldn't want it any other way. But, here is something that may just make you go..hmmm....
It seems that some girls want to wear dresses every single day when they are little & some girls are on the polar opposite end of the spectrum. Chalk me & Lily up on the anti dress list.
Age 4-13: I wanted absolutely NOTHING to do with a dress....and no one in the world was going to convince me to wear one. I remember many, many temper tantrums in my parents bathroom when I was very young as we were trying to get ready for important events. By junior high I just made the executive decision to completely avoid all formal events where a dress was required. I'm not really sure what the turning point was..possibly when I made the cheerleading squad, I'm pretty sure they didn't allow non skirt wearers on the team so, the spell was broken. Hallelujah!
Age:14-?: I could not match....anything...ever. My sister would get very irritated at me every morning coming into her room.."does this match?, does this match?"...I will use my non matching ways to my complete advantage & maybe that is my little secret behind MOMI that I shouldn't have leaked out :)....
It is quite amazing to me that I basically sit around everyday matching fabrics & sewing dresses.
