I don't know about you but when I was a teenager, any outfit I was going to wear to a significant event (a trip to the mall, a day at school, a Civinettes pancake breakfast) had to have a stamp of approval from at least two of the women in my family. The women in my family were my mom and my three sisters.
Then when I was 17 I moved to Germany for a year as an exchange student. I got dressed for the first day of school and modeled my outfit for my host family. Their reaction was a mixture of confusion and disapproval. You see it turns out I had landed in a place where academics were actually the reason people went to school. Not fashion!
(I had this one classmate in Germany who wore the same sweater every single day of the week. He just changed the shirt underneath the sweater. And that was okay!)
(With everyone else. Not really with me.)
Over the years life has taken me further and further away from the women in my family and today I am half a world away from them. But this morning my baby sister Amanda sent me a website that can bring them back into my circle of wardrobe consultants.
It's called http://wearthisorthat.com and it's exactly what it sounds like.
People post pictures of themselves in a couple of outfits and you vote on which looks better.
If you go there please be on the lookout for said baby sister Amanda, who is asking for feedback on her wedding dress.
Please do not adjust your screen, one of the dresses is indeed orange.
