Mums know best… except when it comes to my wardrobe

Published October 22, 2012 by The Feminist

7. 30 this morning. I was just about to go out the door when my mom suddenly said : “Don’t you think those shorts are a little bit too short?” But I could see in her eyes that what she actually meant was: “ Put on something else or I’m not letting you out that door!”
What followed was a very loud argument and eventually I angrily put on something else…
Now, there is something you need to know about me: Although I can handle criticism pretty well, NEVER EVER EVER dare to criticize my outfit.
P-leeeeaase!
Every outfit of mine is planned to detail, from accessories to the type of socks. I had been putting this outfit together for the whole bloody weekend. So when someone comments on my clothes, they don’t just comment on that, they comment on the entire creative concept. Being a true fashionista, that hurts like hell.
I love my mom, I do. I always go to her for advice and I appreciate her opinion on a lot of different matters. But fashion? No. That’s between me, my closet and my sense of style.
Hence, I still believe the outfit was RIDICULOUSLY COOL . A short black playsuit with a white collar and golden buttons. Black transparent tights with knitted over-the-knee socks. (I LOVE layering tights and knee high socks, because it adds another dimension and is fall appropriate) Black pumps and a leather jacket. Surely, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that! If Alexa Chung can pull it off, well so can I!
But nevertheless, I would like to hear your opinion, fellow fashionistas! Was my mother right or not? That is the question…
