This is all stemming from a childhood story that I was telling a coworker.
When I was in 1st grade, there was a girl named Stephanie Reed who was like the fashion diva of six year olds. She had the thick, black and neon colored chevron sweaters, with leggings and flats. Huge bow in the side of the her blonde, brushed hair. Cute little Cindy Crawford mole. The works. I wanted to be Stephanie Reed.
One day, I thought I was going to dress just like her, but since I was an overgrown toddler, I didn't know how to pull it off.
Those leggings she was wearing? At the time, I thought they were just pantyhose. I remember trying to wear something I thought was similar out the door and my mom said no. So I went back to my room and changed, but not before packing my back up outfit in my book bag.
When I got to school, I kept my sweater on, but changed into my "leggings" which were just pink pantyhose. I remember being bummed that my sweater wasn't long, but I didn't think it mattered. Then I walked into the classroom like I owned the place.
Almost immediately, my 1st grade teacher came over to me and asked where were my pants... I said, "These are my pants today." Then my mom was called. When she came to pick me up, I was wearing a short pink sweater, with pink pantyhose.... with my hot pink underwear showing right through. A perfect pink tuxedo! I thought I was Stephanie Reed.
My mom must have got the hint because then she bought me this faux-denim skirt. And I have this picture to treasure for the rest of my life.
My fashion sense has always been terrible.
