of stirrup pants and stirrups

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who noticed that The Girlfriend's Guide suggests stirrup pants as a fashion solution for the pregnant. Stirrup pants. And not just now, as part of the semi-ironic 80s/90's fashion revival. But all the way through, since the actual 90s. Perhaps this information has been removed from the newly updated edition (just in time for the aforementioned revival). I hope my curiosity doesn't actually drive me to open the book since I always emerge from its pages feeling somewhat inadequate (in the personal grooming department, anyway)

Thanks to Jo at the Leery Polyp (someone get that girl an English pub immediately) as well as Mom Writes, mama(e) in translation, wet feet and stirrup queens (who may or may not wear stirrup pants, but if so, probably ironically) for making our day(s), in this and many other ways...

You are quite welcome. No stirrup pants here, though I think I owned a few pairs back in middle school. It was a hot look back then along with sweaters that went down to my knees. The stirrups are of another variety, and since I spend so much time in them in a quest to get pregnant again, I've decided to declare the examination table at my RE's office its own land and have made myself queen. Great book--it's right next to my computer right now. And I saw it at the bookstore last night. Great work.

From the beginning your blog seemed pretty dull for me. But now it keeps getting better. THIS post is just AWESOME!
