Imagine an army of moms in yoga pants, sweats and buns invading the red carpet and responding to a slightly confused “Who are you wearing?” Wanna be that mom? We bring you a different kind of red carpet vision. A #365 Feminist Selfie red carpet. Stay, admire the parade of outfits you’re about to see and share your own through our linkup. The linkup is live until Sunday evening. You can also tweet about us with the hashtag #WhoAreYouWearingMom and invite your friends to join.
A couple of weeks ago I dedicated an entire post to why I’m not friends with Award Season anymore. Ish. Bottom line being: it’s bad for me. Ish. I don’t take my sleep deprivation with a side of why-don’t-we-also-force-you-to-look-at-this-parade-of-clean-people-who-had-time-to-shower-while-we-keep-you-up-until-midnight? No thanks. I’ll just watch for five more minutes and then I’m done. Ish.
Well, that was Golden Globes ago. Post-Grammy me is chill and has a totally different outlook on life, stuff, Robin Thicke and everything red carpet. I have no idea what I was so worked up about. It’s not like there’s no room for bling in my life.
Come, join me on my ketchup-stained red carpet and let’s talk “who are you wearing”.
Sure, if you were to ask me one year ago, the answer would have totally been “Daniel, DUH!” but now I get the relevancy of the question.
Have you ever heard of vision boards? A mom’s outfit is a different kind of a vision board. One that tells a story of what her kids were fed, how they were entertained, whether they managed to avoid milk spillage incidents or not and whether they tried to drown each other during bath time. It’s reasonable to assume that at any given point I’m a visual representation of my kids’ day and as such I’m wearing both Ben AND Daniel.
Now let’s stop beating around the bush and talk hair. I know you were expecting a bun and then Boom! This! Moms have an unwritten code whereby hair is a private part. Don’t show me yours and I won’t show you mine, but since we are red-carpeting here today I’ll treat you to my combover look. It’s really easy moms, don’t wash your hair for two weeks and then comb it over to the side.
Accessories: fridge and grocery store bag with used diaper. You asked.
Et voila! All of this for less than $25. Sleep deprivation included.
Now show me yours!
