Baby, If You Ever Wondered Whatever Became of Me

I am truly blessed.

As a young person I followed my heart in all areas against the better judgment of just about everyone around me.

I applied for a job teaching exercise even though I had absolutely no experience and smoked a pack a day…I never ever played it safe with my clothing choices…and I majored in Communications simple because I found it interesting. Whenever anyone asked me what I planned to do with my degree I shrugged.

Now it is my job to discuss the most fascinating topics I can imagine with the one cross section of the population who have just about the same level of maturity that I have settled upon in my adulthood, college freshmen.

This week we are discussing the role media play in our creation of self. So essentially I am getting paid to to discuss Justin Beiber making out in a Honda… Snooki and my own personal use of a “Bump-it” and my favorite: Kardashian hijinx.
Onto the clothes...

Outfits like this are the reason I love Fall. I love the marriage of jeans and boots. Once you add a blazer you have a perfect seasonal, yet ageless ensemble.

I picture Loni Anderson wearing this to her job at WKRP…no wait, this outfit seems more suited to Bailey. It’s just as well; I am more of a Bailey than a Jennifer.

I can also see a video vixen cougar wearing in the 90’s…maybe not Stacy’s mom…perhaps Lindsey’s mom.

The self-scarved blouse look is still works now I think, but this blouse is from the seventies when the self-scarved blouses were new and hot and well, called blouses even by people in their 20’s.

Since Dean had school today too I decided we should dress alike. You see…ageless.


I survived…barely.

School started last week for me and the little ones. There was actually one day where all four of us were at school at the same time.


I mean I knew this day would eventually come but, much like college graduation and childbirth itself, you are never fully prepared for the wonderment of the actual event.

Doug and I are in full agreement that Dean’s education should be taken very seriously. With one week of preschool under his little belt we have already sat him down and explained the importance of picking a major early on. We are encouraging him towards Pre- Med, Pre- Law and Accountancy perhaps with a minor in Sociology so he will be able to dominate dinner parties.

I don’t usually do kids fashion on this blog but I have a specific vibe I am going for Dean this semester (do preschools have semesters? I know there is no Honor Roll…I asked) I call the look “Prep-school Pot Dealer.”

I hope nobody is offended-I assure you that my 2 year old is not dealing drugs, but the look is quite preppy for a Pizza Bagel
(He’s half Jewish and half Italian)

My classes are amazing this semester. Well, My classes are actually the same exact classes that I have been teaching forever- same syllabi, same books same jokes, but I have new students each semester and this semester they seem engaged in the subject.

This is what I wore the first day of class
Remix- nothing new

This is what I wore Friday
Ann Taylor Bolero Twin Set ($5-Worth Repeating)
Banana Republic trousers (Did I just call them Trousers?- OMG I am turning into my Mother)($5 Worth Repeating
Echo Scarf ($3 Boys and Girls Club Rummage Sale)
Gucci Belt ($25 Junior League Thrift Shop)
Chanel pumps (Saks Fifth Avenue)

And no, I don’t consider myself a label whore- I consider myself a label escort
