Soooooooo i've come to the realization THAT, the ability to match our clothes is CULTURAL!!! Think about it, WHEN did you specifically LEARN how to match your clothes??? I can't really remember a SPECIFIC moment...yet somehow I LEARNED TO MATCH!!! Its CULTURAL!!! I never knew that...UNTIL I started working with the African kids!!!
I remember the girls would come to church with the MODEST clothes we had given them, BUUUUUT the outfits they concocted together...Stripes with polka dots or flowers... it was just like OH WOW!!! Then I was like DETERMINED that I was gonna teach them HOW to MATCH THEIR CLOTHES!!! I specifically remember when Esther was living with me, I would have her put together outfits...as she was getting better at it she would show me...one time it was a PINK flowered skirt, with a PINK striped shirt and I would explain to her, Ok NO...even tho they are both pink, the different patterns CLASH together!!!
Over time, and as the kids got used to the american culture they picked up on HOW to match their clothes! Now i've noticed that its this way with a lot of immigrants from third world countries...they have to LEARN how to match their clothes!!! I'm totally NOT makin fun of immigrants...its just obviousley not taught everywhere in the world!!!
Buuuuuuuuuut NOW... here we are in the USA, annnnnnnd the STYLE is to TRY and match your MISMATCHED CLOTHES!!!! I'm just like Okaaaaaay I hate to break it to you ....buuuuuuut it doesn't matter WHAT you do...that outfit DOES NOT MATCH!!! It drives me bonkers!!! LOLOLOL!!! I promise you all, im gonna be going up to girls at WCC and be like, soooooooo WHEN exactley did YOU migrate over here??? Cuz if you NEED help...my African immigrants can teach you HOW TO MATCH!!!
It is NOT neccessary to follow EVERY trend that comes out!!! Nothing wrong with being a little UP to date, buuuuuut there are a FEW out there that we SKIP over!!! Wondering WHICH ones??? heres a suggestion...Lets specifically start with the ones that...
do NOT look GOOD!!! :D♥Mary Frances :)
