December 25th, 2012 – Fashion Evolution

 

Growing up Mormon, Christmas was celebrated at church on the Sunday before the 25th.  Year after year, my mother dressed me up in velvet dresses and put bows in my strawberry blonde hair.

 

As a young bride at Sundance, I’d slip into my size two jeans or a short skirt to sing along at the Christmas Candlelight Cantata with the rest of the homeowners and Robert Redford.

 

Now, at 42, I spent the holidays in my f-ugly sweater, leggings and a Santa hat.  Instead of pearls, blinking lights dangled from my ears.  (Actually, I didn’t even have a f-ugly sweater.  I wore a Scottie-dog turtleneck with a tacky men’s t-shirt from Wal-Mart because when I went shopping all of the f-ugly sweaters were gone.)

 

Since I don’t own an iron and can’t press my green scarf, I think I’ll wear my Santa jammies today.Imageal
