So awhile back I was watching Pretty Little Liars with my daughter, Sarah.
I started watching it with her to make sure it was appropriate but now I watch because I’m totally hooked. Will we ever find out who “A” is? Anyway, we were watching a scene with Spencer Hastings and I was so excited because she had on the very same dress that I had recently purchased at Anthropologie. I felt so totally cool. Here I am 50 years old with my finger on the pulse of fashion. Sarah never really confirmed or denied my coolness so I have been going about my business of being cool.
Well, yesterday I was in Starbucks waiting for my grande, decaf, triple, soy, extra hot, no whip, no foam mocha when I noticed an elderly women out of the corner of my eye. She was probably almost as much older than me as I am of Spencer Hastings. She had on the exact same shirt that I bought at Ann Loft last summer. I have always liked it but I found myself thinking it looked very “grandma” like. I decided to go home and put it in the giveaway pile.
Reflecting on it today, I had to laugh because I now realize that Spencer Hastings would be mortified to find that we own the same dress. It turns out I’m not that cool afterall………
