Granny Grunge

7 11 2008

Woohoo!!! I am up and posting again. I was super tired all week and my hubby just finished painting the newest “MODEL” to join our team. I haven’t come up with her super-model name as of yet… but I’m working on it.

On to todays topic “Granny- Chic” AKA “Faux-Granny” I sometimes don’t realize that always shopping in thrift stores and garage sales really impacts my fashion choices. I loose what is currently in fashion this month and just find things I love. Lately my hunny has been wrinkling his nose at my clothing choices saying “You look like a granny” to which I respond- I am 27, 5’10” and sknny. I couldn’t look like a grandma if I tried (without the help of make up of course)… oops. Rabbit Trail! So, When I was at Borders last weekend and say these cute crocheted mats on the headrest of the seats in the car next to us I thought “How Chic!!” Then I thought, those are totally granny. HmMMm. Hubby was right. I dress like a granny sometimes. But is there anything wrong with that? I think not! Granny’s rock! They have good smelling houses, tend gardens and wear really comfortable shoes. Maybe it’s time we start revering our elders again and one way is to copy their style

Here’s a Few Lady “Granny” Grunge Pieces new to my shop!
