Our friend Emily was complaining to us last night about one of the moms at her daughter’s school. The other mom – we’ll call her Judy – is a major fashionista – who also happens to be majorly rich! Even if she’s just dropping her kids off a school, she’s jumping out of her Tesla covered head to toe in Gucci, Prada, Chanel… you get the (very pricey) picture!
“Judy” loves checking out what the other moms are wearing and if she likes something, always asks something along the lines of: “Who makes that? Who are you wearing? It’s fabulous!” While her curiosity is meant to be a compliment, it’s rubbing some of the ladies the wrong way! Some of the moms confess they feel sort of embarrassed when they reveal to Judy that no, their dress isn’t by Tom Ford – it’s actually from Target!
Judy’s unrelenting fashion interrogations have become so annoying that some of the moms think they should (gently) tell her to back off on the questioning. But the others think it would be WAY too awkward to say anything without making Judy feel terrible – and that it’s just not worth it.
So – what would you do? Do you think it’s wrong of Judy to constantly ask about which brands people are wearing? Or are the ladies just over-reacting to an honest compliment? Tell us what you think!| Print
