I have a bit of a complex that stems from my childhood.
Well, that's an understatement, I have many. But there's one in particular that I'm talking about.
When my brother and I were very young, my mom went through a sewing phase. Maybe it's because she spent a lot of time off work taking care of us and got a little bored, maybe it's because she realized the fashion of the early nineties was all around terrible, either way, she needed to do something.
So she busted out her sewing machine and went to town whipping up some new outfits for my brother and I. Like, a lot of new outfits... and let's just say that my mom is no Vera Wang. She didn't want to let fabric go to waste, so she ended up making two of every piece. She also is apparently a little colour blind because one of those outfits was made using a cartoon jungle print.
Lions and tigers and public shaming, oh my!
I love my mom and she only did it out of love. But wearing some of those clothes with my brother in public had a lasting effect on me. So now when I see people, especially people in relationships, wearing the exact same thing, I cringe.
But that's just me! Your thoughts? Couples who go all matchy-matchy... cute, or gag-me-with-a-spoon?
