american self belief

notyummy Mon 12-Oct-09 15:42:32

american self belief = over enthusiastic delusional behaviour

bodycolder Mon 12-Oct-09 15:43:01

HuwEdwards Mon 12-Oct-09 15:48:37

HuwEdwards Mon 12-Oct-09 15:51:10

"Hey, with Halloween this month, I could really have fun with this jacket. Not only could I be a circus master with a top hat ( I do own a dressage hat). But I have a full black side saddle skirt, add a fur hat and a muff; I could be Anastasia Romanov. "


MusterMix Mon 12-Oct-09 15:52:01

scroll on to see her poor poor h

MusterMix Mon 12-Oct-09 15:52:13

Jajas Mon 12-Oct-09 15:55:35

She's not bad looking though?

bodycolder Mon 12-Oct-09 15:57:27

She is the poster girl for middle of the road.She is average looking a bit dull

Katisha Mon 12-Oct-09 15:57:48

Yes if you go to "older posts" you can see the DH dressed up as Aragorn...


Bleh Mon 12-Oct-09 15:58:59

I am a bit envy of her shoe collection (she has manolo blahniks, jimmy choos etc.) but wish she wouldn't show off her cankles so much.

Bleh Mon 12-Oct-09 16:02:02

She does have some good outfit days but most are too, erm, American for my tastes. (trying to be delicate in case she wonders over to MN again and has a nervous breakdown).

bodycolder Mon 12-Oct-09 16:04:03

That is hideous!

tulpe Mon 12-Oct-09 20:53:51

She is typical Mid-West American woman (not sure where she is from but that style is all over Indianapolis! )

Hate to say it but......she is also a tad "woman at next".

And those boots are possibly one of the fugliest items of footwear I have ever had the misfortune to lay my delicate eyes upon
