Every time I buy a new clothing item, it inevitably faces scrutiny from my mum. I either get an impressed, “I like this”, or no comment at all which translates to, “you bought this!?… bye Felicia.” Recently I bought this green leather pinafore dress form Zara, which was completely out of my comfort zone for three reasons: 1. I never really wear green, 2. unless it’s a jacket or a skirt, I also never really wear leather and 3. I never wear pinafores. Given it was out of my comfort zone, I thought it would be even furthur out of my mum’s, and I was convinced she’d hate the dress.
