I don’t understand how women can leave the house without fixing herself up a little. If only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that’s the day she has a date with destiny. And it’s best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.
— Coco Chanel
I’m awfully glad Coco never spotted me at Harris Teeter around midnight with spit-up on my shirt. When my boys were tiny and I was having a rough day, though, I would get myself dressed up (hair and makeup), put cute outfits on my twinkies and head to the mall to walk around. It always made me feel better to have people oooohhh and aaahhhh.
“Your boys are so cute!” “You look amazing!” “I don’t know how you do it.” Even if I had to leave the mall when one of them spit up all down my pants. True story.
What makes you feel better?
