ME: "I need you to come over before we go out."
FRIEND: "Why, what's wrong?"
ME: "Nothing, I just don't know which top to wear."
FRIEND: "Well what do they look like?"
ME: "I've narrowed it down to the black maternity shirt or the floral old lady curtain top with the little cap sleeves."
FRIEND: "Um, go with maternity."
And so, I enter my late 20s.
Maybe a few months too late... but it's finally happened.
Now, it's not a matter of finding the outfit I look the "thinnest" in.
It's finding the outfit that I feel the most feminine in.
And this sometimes includes maternity-looking fashion, high-wasted jeans, and clothes that show curves rather than bones.
But I wonder, how do men feel about the "maturing 20-something."
Should we leave the billowy, feminine, clothes on the rack and still trek out in our tight black tops?
(Somehow, I think I know the answer to this).
