Ok, I’m a day late with Wednesday’s Wish, but somehow life got busy, time ran away and I barely noticed what day it was! Sorry, sorry, sorry!.
I may have mentioned in a previous post that The Child is making her Confirmation in March. Well, I hereby forgive my mother for the atrocious outfit she made me wear at my own Confirmation all those years ago. Dear God, how is one supposed to dress a petite 12 year old when the selection is either a) too young, b) too tarty (yes .. tarty!), c) doesn’t fit or d) “I don’t like it” … said in a truculent tone that makes me seriously fear the teenage years.
But I digress. Clearly Mommy must also get a new outfit … which is proving to be almost as harrowing a task as dressing The Child. Today, whilst browsing the web in search of inspiration, I came across this little beauty. Not for the Confirmation, you understand, but I get easily distracted and there it was! And with that price tag, there it will stay. But I do love leather and I’m still not fully convinced that wearing leather trousers at my age wouldn’t be screaming ‘mutton’. A leather skirt however, is an entirely different kettle of fish. And it can be worn with opaques or boots so big cheers from those of us who need coverage! The reason that this appealed to me was the unexpected zip up the front. I like unexpected details like that. So what do you think? Would this be on your Wish List if you had an unlimited budget?
