Have any of you ever argued with
your mom over clothes? I didn’t used to, but now it seems like every time I go
shopping with my mom, we get in a fight. Mostly it’s over how long (or short)
the clothes are; and that’s exactly what we argued about yesterday afternoon. I
was trying on skirts for school. I thought they were really cute. But my mother
insisted that every skirt I tried on was too short. And in the end, I didn’t
not sure how to explain to my mom that everyone in school wears short skirts.
(Especially the Pops, not that I’m trying to be like them or anything.) If I
tell her everyone else is doing it, she’s sure to say no. She absolutely hates
when I say, “But everybody else is.” She usually says something like, “If
everyone else jumped off a bridge, would you jump, too?” Which is totally
beside the point.
so you know, it’s not like the skirts I was trying on were so short. In fact,
most of them were a lot longer than the ones Dana and Claire were wearing in
school today. They were just normal length skirts—at least normal for middle
how can I convince my mom to let me be a little stylish once in a while? Is it
even possible? Or should I just stick to wearing jeans for the rest of my life?
for all your help!
