KISS Kitsch

When the laundry has piled up and the closet is bare, I reach for my secret favorite shirt. One I would have proudly worn daily when I was 13. The only problem is, I didn't find it until a couple years ago. Now it's kitschy. (If you don't know what that means, look below. I had to look it up too.)

I'm not ballsy enough to wear it in public, but wearing it at home inspires me to play a little air guitar. And my kids love the glitter. Now if only I could find a Donny Osmond shirt.

Kitschy: So tacky or lame that is has a certain ironic appeal.
Lava lamps, and trucker hats are very kitschy.

Girl, I DEMAND that you go out and rock it in public. Seriously. TODAY!

Technically I did that day, but my coat was on. But OK, OK I promise. Writing it here was my first shaky step.
