This is NOT because Groovy is a big mama. no, No, NO!
It is because Big Mama of the internet world of fashion advice, has invited all 2,000 of her closest friends to join her in a "Fashion Fiesta".
See? Here's the clicky-button hooey that proves it.
Big Mama asks, "What do you wear on a daily basis? What’s your uniform? What piece of clothing can you not live without?"
Clearly, she asks this because she wants to steal our wardrobes.
Well folks. It is time for Groovy's contribution to the fashion world. My mostest favoritest, can't-live-without-it article of clothing is.................
(The suspense is killing you, isn't it?)
...................................my LLBean grey sweatery-jackety thing! Which they don't sell any more! So You can't get one! HAH!
Since you can't find it in the catalog or the store anymore, I shall show it to you so that your jealousy and envy can continue to grow. (You people need to repent!)
Why do I like it so well? Lemme spell it out for you.
A. It doesn't wrinkle. Ever.
B. It's machine washable (and it never seems to get stained - even though I wear it to cook in and clean in and shop in and eat in and garden in!)
C. It's soft and silky and comfy. So much so that Silly-Head steals it when she can get it away from me and snuggles with it.
D. It's the perfect weight for wearing around the house to keep that Maine chill at bay.
E. If I do get warm and need to remove it, it can rolled up to almost nothing and stashed in my pocketbook.
F. It has clean, classic lines.
G. It hides bloat. I cannot stress how important that is!
H. It's in a neutral color and it can be dressed up or down; It goes with absolutely EVERYTHING. See?
It's so soft I can sleep in it.
It's perfect with jeans.
It's lovely with dress pants...
It makes a sophisticated bathing suit cover.
And yes, it can even be dressed up for evening wear. Add some carefully applied make-up and a classy blue-phrog pin and you could wear it to a wedding!
Please note the careful coordination of the lipstick to the outfit.
The classy blue phrog pin I bought for a buck showing that Groovy is not only elegant, but also loves a good deal!
So there you have it, folks. Groovy's grooviest grey sweatery-jackety thing. Ya gotta love it!
And one more thing Big Mama wanted to know is what Groovy would buy, if she could, to add to her inadequate wardrobe. Folks, it would be underwear. Mine are a bit on the overworn-no-elastic-left-frayed side of the fashion planet. Groovy wants some more of those soft, silky spandexy ones that are low-rise, but not bikini.
Groovy is not going to post a pic of underwear for you though. This is a family website!
Make sure you go visit Big Mama and see what everyone else is wearing!
And now, I'd like to take a moment to thank my photographers, Chief Girly-Girl and Warrior Silly-Head.
They actually paused a game of Mario to take pics of their crazy mother. Of course, these two wild indians (with miniature teepee) are a bit nuts themselves and completely understood why this photo shoot was SO important.
However, I must admit they thought this photo was WAY more ineresting than the fashion pics. I made eggs yesterday morning and they were cross-eyed!
