Mission #96, Day 1--90s Icons--Daria

December/the holidays are a time for nostalgia.  This year has been the biggest bummer in pretty much all aspects imaginable and this Christmas will be really hard.  I will miss my Grampa.  I will miss my kids, who will be with their dad this year.  It sucks/has sucked/will suck.  But this is no time to hide my head in the sand.  So this week, for nostalgic purposes, I will be reminiscing over some really nonsensical nostalgia by paying tribute to my favorite leading ladies of the 90s.  

We'll start with my "spirit animal" of cartoons, if you will.  Here's a hint (if you haven't guessed by now with the title of the post . . . the outfit . . . etc. . . .)

Sarcastic, hateful of the basic and simple-minded, intelligent, feminist.  She's right up my alley.  And her signature look is more than easy to copy.

Exhibit A to why I can relate to Daria below . . . why am I a fashion blogger again?  I swear to God I don't belong here . . .

Dear Frannie Friday--Things that Make Having Friends Who Are Parents Better

You know, parents get a bad rep sometimes.  They show you way too many pictures of our kids, even if you don't ask for them.  They freak out when they actually get five minutes of fresh air away from the house.  Alllll they talk about, is their kids.  But sometimes, being friends with parents can actually have its benefits.  Here are some:


1.  Snacks.  We always have snacks.


2.  We are queens and kings of the BOGOs, free days, etc.


3.  Generally speaking, we are compassionate people.  So if you need a ride home or something--we're totally your gal/guy.


4.  For some reason, we always have baby wipes.  Even when our babies aren't babies anymore.  And you would not believe how useful they can be.  Sidenote--did you know baby wipes are the best things to use to clean your phone screen?

Ok, I admit it.  We're a pretty lame bunch.  But fun.  A pretty good fun/lame combo.

Thursday Mixer--Floarl Kimono

The floral kimono is one of those blogger must-haves that actually turned out for the best.  It is truly something that I can grab and add to a simple outfit to make it a little something extra.

I wanted a dark floral number and finally found "the one" at Kohls.  It was $24, I think.  Meanwhile, this pretty little number has been worn 5 times on the blog, which makes the price per wear $4.80.
