In The Fashionista's Closet: Mama's Gun

Sorry I don't have a more exciting outfit post for you but I am living in short dresses, flats and with my hair up most days to beat this 100 degree Texas heat. The heat is also to blame to for my recent photos on my balcony, it's too hot to schlep my tripod out and stand in the heat to take pics. And going to my part-time, now temporarily full-time job isn't helping my outfit posts because I don't wear heels there and my outfits aren't very inspired. 
 Speaking of my part time job, a customer came in and asked if we had handbags that came with a pocket for concealed handguns. The salesgirl, dumbfounded, said "Excuse me?" and the woman repeated it reeeeeaaaallllyyyy slow like the salesgirl was stupid.

"Do...you...have...any...bags...that...have...a...pocket...for...a...
concealed...handgun?" 
 As if we have people who come in all the time and ask for bags equipped to hide deadly weapons. 

 "This is our selection to conceal guns and to your right are the bags designed to hide knives and hand grenades."

 Dress: Zara
Earrings: Aldo
Bag; Prada
Bracelets: Assorted
Shoes: Target

Sorry maam, I  know this is Texas and all but I guess the retailers haven't made those great strides in handbag design yet...

You may not think this outfit is very inspiring, but I think it's cute! Love the earrings!

That lady basically needs a purse with compartments...if your PTJ has bags with compartments made specifically for hand guns, I am coming to buy one, and I don't even own a gun! Lol

Part of what you do is remind us that every outfit can be fly, even if it's a lowkey fly. LMAO at the NRA lady who needs a handbag for her concealed weapon! Sounds like the stereotypes of the Oakland girls!

Your denim dress is simple with enough space to let in ventilation. Love it.

Should hv asked her who she intended to shoot with the gun.

Cute outfit. Found your blog the other day and had to obsessively go back and read all of your post since '06. Do you have any idea how much work that was? :) Great blog - thanks for all the great tips and for a fashion sense and style I can actually relate to.
