When I’m in the hood, I usually have my hair pulled up or back in some very non-Sarah Palin do, and little or no makeup on. Clothes are a crapshoot, too. Sometimes they’re too short, too hole-y, or strangely unfashionable. Comfy would be a good description.
I went to an open house at a neighbor’s house this weekend, and the host said to me, “Oh. Donna! I didn’t recognize you at first. You…have makeup on! You didn’t have to do that.”
I think there were a lot of mixed messages there.
