Do You Still Play Dress-Up?
Oct 24 2008
My mothers closet would make Donatella jealous. I had a baby 11 weeks ago so I'm still a bit larger than usual, about 30 lbs, ack, so my mother has inspired me with a peak at what she is "willing" me. I hope it looks as good on me, she has the advantage of being 5'11' 130 lbs, and I'm only 5'8''. Now if only she shared some height!
My mom was never into fashion all that much. I use to put her heels on when I was little but that's about it.
I play dress up with my clothes, not my mom's. My mom has great taste, but we are not the same size, but I love to dress up in my clothes just for fun. I especially like wearing dressy shoes or heels that I don't wear all the time (I can't wear heels at work, I don't like to wear them to school, so unless I have a fancy party or dinner to go to, they just sit in my closet)...
i don't have any one to play dress up with so i have to admit that i don't :( ...it used to be so much fun to do this with my friends though!
I love dressing up with my mom's new high heels
What I'd do if mom had kept her wardrobe...she had an amazing collection of platform shoes. She got married in 6" heels with a 2.5" platform. She figured they'd go out of style and be a waste, so when my parents hired a lady to help clean the house up when they were moving, she said she could have them. WAAH!!!
playing dress up is one of my greatest guilty pleasures. my mum has the best vintage outfits.
My mom has great taste in accessories! If I see something in her closet that I like, it's mine! Wahahaha!
My mother and I are on completely different fashion planets. Plus I'm in Colorado and she's in central Illinois. But I have almost never gone to her closet. Unless I was looking for a rolling laugh from my friends. No offense mom! LOL
well i DO still play dress up but now its in my sisters closet and not my mom's Besides this is a great way to add to your wardrobe!
i do it in shops looooool i think its gonna be fun to do it with a guy or maybe that is just my twisted mind looool
Skigurl, My mom made me do they same thing as a kid. I hated it also.
I'm to lazy to put clothes on and off. When I go shopping , I don't try things on. I just get my size and go home.
not her clothes, as we are not the same size at all, but I do try on her shoes, jewelry, scarves, hats...
Well, sometimes I will put my friends clothes on, but I would never wear my moms clothes, they are pretty bad, and she is totally stuck in the 80's lol!
My Mom now plays dress up in my closet. Everything new I get she wants to try on. After I've had something for a few months she always asks if she can have it. I guess the tables have turned.
i've never much been into this i love shopping but when we get home, my mom always wants us to do a fashion show of what we've bought and i always hate that i hate getting in and out of clothing
considering my obsession with vintage ANYTHING..i'll have to say yes!! I have about 10 dresses that used to belong to my grandmas' friend back in the 60's/70's and more than half of my jewelry and accessories collection is "on loan" from my grandma :)
my mom has the coolest vintage 60s dresses, so cute! I lub trying them on and even wearing them out sometimes.
lol... Dress up was my favorite thing to do! This brought back so many memories =)...I don’t dress up in my mothers clothes anymore(weird) but I am constantly dressing up in my own pieces- mixing and matching to see what works- great "Im bored" pastime
Um I play dress up with my big sister's clothes but never my moms
OH I meant fur coat, not out!
My mom never throws anything away so going through her closet I always end up with great vintage finds. Luckily I am the same size now when my mother was in the 70's. My latest discovery is a cropped tweed jacket, a python clutch and a rabbit fur out. Though I am not sure how I feel about wearing fur.
