Yesterday, I went into my daughter's school to talk to the kids about my career as an author. I dressed professionally, and thought I looked decent.
Well, my daughter informed me when she came home, that the most popular girl in the school did not like my shoes. Supposedly she is the expert on fashion.
"Are you kidding me?" I asked. "What was wrong with my shoes?"
"She said they weren't fashionable enough. She said you should've been wearing UGGS."
"UGGS? Aren't those the boots tweens and teenagers wear?"
"Yeah. She said that would've been more fashionable."
I shook my head. So apparently I'm not supposed to dress like someone over forty. I'm supposed to look like a teenager.
Okay. Next time I'm going to wear neon green sneakers. Then we'll see what the fashion police have to say!
