the teen. It is only an exercise in frustration!
Whenever we go shopping for clothes for the teen, we usually end up with nothing. Only sometimes a clothing item gets thumbs up from the teen...
She is so picky and so fussy! All the pants and the skirts should sit on her hips, and when it doesn’t, she pulls it off to the hip level. When I tell her it should be pulled up a bit, she retorts by saying that she will never wear it that way. Definitely not an eighties baby! We used to wear our skirts and pants just beneath our breasts.
The jeans should not make bags in front. Most of the time I can’t even see the “bag” in front!
The worst part is that she looks very good in EVERY-THING she tries on. She still has the skinny body to look fantastic in almost anything! Why do we never appreciate our youthful bodies? Only to think back later on about our youthful skinny selves...
I cannot buy her any clothing item, because I do not want to waste my money and time. When she doesn’t like a clothing item, it does not get worn. Full stop! Never! Even when being nicely asked, or “threatened” because I have not seen the specific clothing item.
From now on I will let her find her own clothes. We do not agree on what is nice and what looks nice. Only sometimes!
Fortunately she manages to look good every time! With no help – only sometimes – from the mother! (Wink smile!) The teen has her dress sense and style which is unique to her. Luckily for the mother it is also not way out, or outrageous!
I always tell her that if she wears or looks funny, I will definitely capture it on camera. To keep it for that rainy day when we will need a laugh! (Not really! But I think it helps a bit to ward of bad teen wardrobes, don’t you?)
Next time I will rather go and drink a coffee, than go into a changing room with her...
