SisterBang: Style Maven

No matter what the fashion is, she always buys one kind of shoe: high clogs that make her look like a little circus pony. Sometimes even in faux fur.
She would get a manicure in Ballet Pink polish even when she's unemployed, and skip food (she doesn't cook, anyway, or even have a kitchen table and chairs).
She smells so good ("The Vanilla Bomb")and her hair is so shiny that children always want to crawl into her lap.
She has dog hair all over her car but none of it ever ends up ON her, for some reason.
She wears babydoll dresses and braids because "I'm an art teacher!" She gives the same reason for having a purple streak in her hair.
She mixes necklaces from Tiffany with beaded rings made by 4th graders, and it all looks great.
She always has smooth feet.
Her constant and most beautiful accessory is Gordon, as seen in photo.
When you make a suggestion about something she should or shouldn't wear, she cheerfully tells you to go to hell.

She has perfect eyebrows that look like anchovies.

She carries fantastic bags and she doesn't walk, she strides. You might think this is because she's confident, but it's really because she's kind of shy and doesn't like to make too much eye contact with people. No dawdling. We have places to go.

She always has glamorous sunglasses.

She's been wearing the same lipstick (some sheer, shimmery Clinique shade) because it looks good on her. Period. Who cares if some other shade is more au courant?

She despairs every winter that she's getting "sallow" or "ashy," but she never does because she's a genius with subtle bronzer.

She just turned 43 and she is finally, finally starting to age a little bit (so we won't have to kill her).

She is SisterBang, a True Original.

Love you, Seestren!

Whoa; I am definitely seeing a family resemblance! Those cheeks! You make having a sister sound really nice. *sigh*

She called me today to say, "Oh my God, you OUTED me!"

And I snorgled, which is my favorite new word thanks to you, HS.

A belated but sincere happy birthday to you, Gordon's mom (aka SisterBang). I'm so in love with your sweet whitefaced boy, courtesy of his proud aunt.
