When I wore this outfit to church a couple little girls told me they liked my outfit. Always believe little girls... They haven't been influenced by Vogue, by fashion blogger's pattern mixing or by Modcloth*... if it looks nice, they like it. Simple.
A few years ago, I went all out and bought some yellow pumps from Aldo full price. I thought they were the ish (I don't really talk like that... I'm just running out of words). They had huge spiky heels, an elongated pointy toe and faux crocodile embossed leather. I told you... the ish. And I was hot stuff in those pumps... until I overheard a little kid ask their dad why I had bananas on my feet. So I got defensive and got in the child's face and yelled 'Why don't you make like a banana and split?' and then the dad got involved and soon we were wrestling on the church parking lot. Orrrrr.... I actually just looked down at my size 10 feet encased in these huge yellow pumps and I thought 'Child, you are right, these are ugly shoes.' And I never really wore them again. That was not peer pressure, it was just the truth.
*Granted, some may be influenced by those scary Bratz dolls.
