|Can I pull this one off?|
I have a HUGE life event this Saturday. HUGE.
Life changing life affirming life altering la vie en large.
I'm auditioning for the Listen To Your Mother Show in Madison, Wisconsin, this Saturday, February 12, at 11:00 a.m.
I really want this and I am going to go for it.
Go Fight Win, right? Well.....
Now, 2 DAYS BEFORE THIS AWESOME OPPORTUNITY...while I sit here in the middle of a pile of pulled out from the closet clothes, face in hands, I suddenly remember...
I don't know how to dress.
I have been inside a house either gestating or lactating since 1995. What does one wear to an audition? What? Hubs says, "you look good in anything." (yeah, I know, he is so good.) Teens say, "mom....we don't want to look at you like that." (huh? teenage boys...what does that even mean?") Baby E says, "momma, I like your red pajamas best."
What to do? Then, a moment of clarity...I am NOT * lone woman walking the planet.*
I've got some help.
I know the BEST peeps for this job.
What the heck and geez louise...but I should've thought of this before.
YOU, You, my sweet friends.
And who is cooler and what is cooler than cool? Ice Cold You.
I've been tweeting about the Listen To Your Mother Show audition that I have this Saturday. THIS.
I had the deep hair conditioning treatment done for the Winter Dredlocks (took a gallon of oil, thank you.)
The nails are a beautiful, retro Lucy Ricardo fedora red...thank you to Hyui Lin (you are a DOLL, girl.)
I'm getting the beauty sleep so I don't look like a psycho with red lipstick but, oh, she has glossy hair!
My confession: I don't know what to wear. I don't know what to wear. I don't know what to wear.
Please, if you have a heart, vote in a comment below. Here are the looks I'm contemplating:
|Ethnic. As in, "My...we're looking ethnic today."|
|Smart. As in, "Wow. No accessories needed, her brain's enough."|
|Sugar and Spice. I've got 2 more years left on this look, I think I can do it.|
|Glamour Woman. I'll even bring this chair.|
|Hip Chick. Sometimes, that's all you need to know.|
AND: consider trying out yourself for the Listen To Your Mother shows in Austin, Valparaiso, Madison, Los Angeles, Spokane. Go HERE for audition information. You just need to want to do it!
You know, I could always go as me:
