Did you see there's a poll now? And I want pictures of you in your denim jumper, dawning. Is it appliqued?

OK, I'm asking because when folding the laundry I realized I have no less than 6 denim skirts. And obviously, I wear them all the time. And I thought, dang, girl, you are this close to being a homeschooling stereotype.

I used to, but it wore out and I haven't replaced it yet.

I wore my denim skirt today.

I'd love to have more than one denim skirt but between money being tight and losing weight, I have very few outfits and all of them came from the thrift store.

Ok, I participated in the poll!

I don't ever wear it anymore, and it does not have appliques. I do wear jean skirts--couple of long ones and a couple of minis.

I saw Ruthla in her denim skirt today!

I don't, but I had a denim dress when I was pregnant with my first in 1989. I bought it at a Back Bay (Boston) maternity store. I voted Heck no because there wasn't a voting option for a denim maternity dress from 1989. lol I have to admit that it was not...repeat...was not 'acid' denim. It was very soft and comfy. But still, it *was* denim. lol

Sorry. I tried to cover all possible options, but just didn't see that coming. And I forgot the ubiquitous "other".

Well, hot dang, sometimes being a mod pays off. Just added "other".

I don't know what a jumper is.

It's a sleeveless dress that is intended to be worn with a shirt (long or short sleeved) underneath. They often button down the front.

My husband has outlawed jumpers!!! I used to have a few, but he despises them. I do wear skirts most of the time though, and several are denim.

I already voted Heck no. I don't expect there are many people posting at MDC who had a baby in 1989. Born in 1989, ok. But not pregnant. Some of us space out our kiddies more than is natural. heh.

:

Am I really the only one who lives in one?

I have multiple jumpers and yes, some have applicqu..... applic.... anyway.....

I don't wear pants or skirts, I have to wear dresses or jumpers. Anything that creates pressure on the waist is a complete no no for me- causes nausea.

LOL My sister graduated in 1989 and her cheerleader friends held & surrounded my newborn at graduation. He's in the yearbook supplement-- so tiiiiiiiiy and oh-so-cool. From the get -go, the boy was all that and more. Yes, my sister the cheerleader: Extended Breastfeeding Mom and natural childbirth diva. Boggles the mind, no?

I voted heck no but I might have chosen something stronger for my exclamation.

This strikes as funny and I have no idea why.

You don’t owe them an explanation, just a response.

Cari, whatareyagonnado? Acid denim was far-eaking everywhere in the 80's. Not one of us wants to relieve the one -handed glove, either. Right? Riiiight???
