The Frump - My New Maternity Look!Molly Thornberg
I admitted it. I am SICK OF BEING PREGNANT.
To make matters worse – I’ve done what I’ve promised myself I wouldn’t do… I wouldn’t sport the maternity look that I loather:
What is this new maternity look I speak of called THE FRUMP? Well I will say this, Frump is NOT cute. (Find out what FRUMP is after the jump)
I love how urban dictionary defines FRUMP:
A woman who is generally not concerned with her appearance and doesn’t make any attempt to look womanly or sexy. Frumps are very common in the Seattle area. They need not be overweight but commonly are somewhat “doughy” and are characterized by lack of makeup (except for ugly art-school or Goth-style makeup), poorly-fitted, unstylish clothing, general lack of muscle tone or a tan. They sometimes wear very bright red lipstick or substitute teacher cat-eye glass to make themselves even less appealing to men although they are not dykes. They’ll often complain loudly that they can’t find a man yet make no attempt to present themselves in a manner that might attract a man (showing skin or cleavage for instance). They might even be somewhat attractive (do-able)if they made an attempt at dressing better and wearing makeup and/or a better hairstyle.
That is the state of my style people, and it ain’t pretty.
I feel like BURT (yes, of Burt and Ernie)
Eye brows are over due for a waxing.
The roots of my hair when grown out, do not resemble the cuteness that only Sarah Jessica Parker’s hair can sport as Carrie Bradshaw.
Yoga Pants and Sling Sweaters
While out on maternity leave, I loved frump and didn’t care WHAT Stacy and Clinton would think. But I WORK! I have a professional job, that requires professional apparel and well I’m just in too much of a frumpy mood to be dressing professional!
This negative nelly is so NOT me!
YUCK. YUCK and MORE YUCK.
The 142 weeks of pregnancy is getting to me. Time for a change.
I need a new attitude. A new look. A way out of my frump. Pray for me people, I still have 17 weeks left of this. I’m calling my hair dresser tomorrow.
