Fashion Friday: Cousin It

November 11, 2011 at 5:57 AM 4 comments

My mom lives in a beautiful home but it’s up in the hills.  With all the beauty of nature, comes the issue where rodents and varmints can come for a visit.  Sometimes she’ll have possums living on her roof, which requires a call to an expert to get them out.  The other day, I dropped by home after a client meeting and I was pretty sure mom had trapped and skinned such a little possum herself.  This is what I found laying on her vanity.

I asked her with disgust and intrigue what this hairy number was.  She said, “Oh, I went in to buy a hairbrush and I came out with this.”  Relieved this was not the DIY version, disgust turned into delight.  What could this little number be?  Mom immediately modeled it for me and I just had to snap a photo and share…

Fabu – mom – fabu!!  Obviously, I had to get into the “Cousin It” modeling and so I threw on top of the outfit I was wearing.

I’m thinking the leopard belt was overkill this time round.  What do you think?  It worked with the outfit I had on prior to Cousin It.  I love that mom bought Cousin It along with a hairbrush.  And for those of you who are local – she bought it at Peninsula Beauty – you would never guess it.  Now, I have to convince her to actually wear it out of the house.  Happy Friday!

    I think that the faux possum needs a name; something like Medussa.

    I love when Moms come up with super cute fashion ideas that then inspire their daughters! My mom’s high collars have given me much surprise delight, I’m always looking for them now! Your mom looks awesome in that number, you do too, obv.
