How To Train Mom...and Double Your Wardrobe!

  When you reach the age of about 16, you're at a point in your life when you've normally already reached your destined height and even in some cases, your destined weight. Nothing changes from there. Most of us take on a physique similar to our own moms. This can either be a plus or a minus, or maybe you are totally different from mom, but still your gorgeous self. Anyways, the thing is, if you and your mother share the same waist size....there is a way to get mom to sport the new looks and to share clothes with her. Which means doubling your wadrobe!

From my own experience, I didn't have to do much work to convince my own mom to get into the swing of the youthful fashion of today. She's always been young at heart, and yes, at 39 she still likes to go out and have the men drool all over her. (Even though she's happily married ladies! Just because you are married doesn't mean you become invisible..we all know that right?) Back on track here, there are a few simple steps that you must take to conform your mom into the elite fashion world.

1. Whenever browsing through a clothing store on a Saturday afternoon, find something of your mom's favorite color which presides with your own taste (of course). Then, casually say in your best brown-nosing voice,"Geez mom, this would look great on you!" This not only boosts her confidence, but could even possibly get her to buy it and more. If you convince her, you know you've succeeded.

2. It's that all important night, and your mom is rushing around everywhere to find the perfect outfit for your father's associate function. Of course she brings you along to suffer with her in and out of the dressing rooms. Why not get something out of this, right? Take control, tell her you owe it to her to help her out a little. Pick out everything she throws on. And maybe con her into buying two outfits...just in case the other doesn't "look right."(If you get what I mean).

3. I know every teenage girl at least snags a mag or two each month from the store or by subscription. When your dear heart has reached it's full content and it's willing to part with you oh so precious possessions....casually throw away mom's Woman's World and stick your own mags by her bedside. She'll have no choice but to look through them. Then by the whim of fate, she'll start to wish she was young again. That's when you step in and encourage her to go for it. Throw away the spandex mom!! Try these boot cut jeans on for size!

4. Plan a girls day out. Force your mom to get a make-over at the beauty counter. Tell the beautician you want her to have on all the "in" make-up for the season. This will get good ol' mom feeling good about herself. And we all know, that when you feel good, you buy more! Thus, insist on picking out all of her clothes!

By this time hopefully you'll have your mom headed down a new path. The right path that is! Your wadrobe will double I guarantee it! If not, try harder!! Take the advice from a dedicated Fashion Diva and Lacrosse player....if at first you don't succeed..don't sit down and cry you little baby!....get up and try again!:o)~
