Horrible Housewife attempts fashion with a 19 month old #cbias

Why is a 25 year old accepting fashion guru applications? Funny you should ask! I am a hostage of the ever popular yoga pants, better known as the work at home mom’s wardrobe. Yoga pants accommodate my muffin top. They make my ba donk a donk look good. And Let’s not forget that I can sleep, chase my kid, and go to the gym in the same pair of yoga pants. Doesn’t that sound glorious? I think so.

Except, I’m going to SoFabCon in May and I need to take my fashion to this level…

♫ I like that boom boom pow
Them chickens jackin’ my style
They try copy my swagger ♫

Horrible Housewife finds her fashion swagger with clothes from CWonder #cbias

Go visit C. Wonder and tell me the first thing you notice. I will wait so please don’t get too distracted…


Could they have my purple pants? Nah! Who carries pants that extraordinary? Stranger things have happened, right? That is exactly how you would describe this shopping experience! You will never guess what I will be arriving to SoFabCon in!

Aren’t my pants wonderful?

Fashion gurus need not apply

Dare I say doing a bit of online shopping at C. Wonder did me good? C. Wonder literally has sassy pants, in all sorts of colors: purple, yellow, pistachio, etc. I like sassy pants and felt right at home bouncing from one vivid piece of clothing to the next. I mean, where else am I going to be able to buy purple army appropriate pants? This means Sparkle Pants has to take a picture with me while I’m wearing them! Squee!

Mark your calendars because this mommy has found her fashion swagger and is getting out of the house in her purple pants! If you couldn’t tell from my purple outfit, I’m what you would call an extremist, a believer in go big or go home. This is one time I won’t have to sit on the sink painting my eyebrows in while my toddler pulls everything out of the cupboard. Bring on the conferences, baby!

    You know, as your fashion advisor I don’t think you have enough purple on. Maybe a bow would help? I just don’t get the vibe that you really enjoy the color purple.
