… but there are a lot of products out there geared toward women that I simply don’t get. I’m not sure there’s programming more vapid than Lifetime and Oxygen, for example. (Actually that’s not true. MTV and its demon spawns are just as bad and possibly worse.) I have no (p)interest in–well, you know. And I seldom read Babble.
I feel like I should apologize for that stuff, as though the universe is saying, “But Mere! This stuff is FOR YOU. Enjoy it! Indulge in just a little of the fluffy and unsubstantial. Kick your feet up and have a little fun!”
Meh, I’m okay, thanks.
HOWEVER, for whatever reason I did stumble over to Babble today and I found something useful over there–remember a couple of months ago when I was bemoaning the dearth of breastfeeding clothes? It seems another mother felt the same way, only she was nice enough to get off her duff and find 25 nursing-friendly ideas that are all under $50. Better yet, she’s a recent transplant to the south, so they’re all warm-weather-friendly (or “I-still-have-frequent-hot-flashes”-friendly) also.
Now, sure, I don’t shop at Forever 21. I already did my time in Contempo Casual (yes, in case you didn’t know, I’m old!), 579, Express, Body Shop, Wet Seal, Gadzooks, etc. But after site after site of tent-fashion, I’ll happily embrace shirts that were designed for girls half my age!
Well, in theory, certainly.
Go check out that link, seriously. There are some cute things. And thank you to Madeline for putting it together!
