What not to wear

Yes, I am a fan of the TLC show What Not to Wear. I pick up a practical tip now and again, but what I really enjoy is talking back to the TV when Stacey and Clinton clean up a mother of toddlers or dog walker or construction worker. They may end up looking nice, but it's not very practical.

This is my current "look", as foster mom to five kitten toddlers.

No, my closet is not full of sweats, I just wear the same set over and over. Every couple of days I throw them into the wash with the kittens' bedding. That's my dirty little secret, so to speak.

Note the shoes. I normally wear flip flops this time of year, but have resorted to clogs to protect my toes from their little needle toes.

This is not what you think it is. I had just washed this, then proceeded to drip guacamole on it. Sigh.

I am totally with you on that show. I love it, but they need a reality check. I am a stay-at-home mom, and there is NO WAY I'm running around in cute little skirts and cashmere sweaters - are you kidding me? Between the lack of mobility, the winters and the dry cleaning bill, it just isn't happening.

Seriously, do they really expect these moms to catch a toddler hell-bent on running into the street in kitten heels? (LOL - I guess we could call what you have "kitten clogs")

LOVE the kitty slippers!

Hah! I hadn't realized how much my "kitten clogs" look like "bunny slippers" until you both mentioned them.

Fun reality show: give Stacey a litter of bottle-fed kittens or puppies to foster for a month, and see what she is wearing at the end!

I love that looks kinda demoralizing sometimes I always dress up, because I like to I guess. But some of the things that they pick out DO seem a bit impractical.
