The buffaloes in my life definitely have their opinions on my clothes. Who knew?
I consider myself a poor shopper. I much prefer to shop with someone. Alone, I will never buy a thing. With my mom or sister, I'll probably spend too much. But at least I'll come home with something new to wear! So shopping with opinionated buffaloes should work out well. One would think.
This weekend I found myself out shopping with my guys. At stop number one, I tried on a maternity dress. I loved the bright print and heavy feel of the fabric, but when I saw myself in it I wasn't quite sold. I called Daddy Buffalo over for his opinion - you know, the across the store 'come here' nod.
His assessment? "It doesn't have much shape. It looks like you are wearing a curtain."
Needless to say, that dress went back on the rack and we left there without buying a thing.
Later on in the day, I was in another store, this time with Dale and my mom. She handed me a blouse to consider. It was about hip length and was cut in a little at the waist, I think with a tie in the back. However, it was also a button-up and in a vibrant plaid.
Without even being asked for his opinion, Dale pipes up, "Oh no! That is way too manly!"
Hmph. I couldn't quite talk myself into it after that.
Even if he is just 7.
If I want anything new to wear, it looks like I better stick with my women buddies!
