fashion faux pas.
I'm afraid my sisters and I weren't that much help when my mom asked us to go shopping with her to find the perfect mother-of-the-groom dress for my brother's wedding. It's just so easy to get distracted...and before you know it, you're in the dressing room trying on hideous things being handed to you by your sister, first giggling, then laughing out loud, and then comes the wheezing and almost wetting yourself. I'm sure the ladies in the quiet boutique weren't quite sure what to make of us.
