SLIDE OF THE WEEK

Mother's Day Fashion Show

 

We love it when a family strikes a Mother’s Day pose on the front porch of a house that should be called “Casa Flamingo.”

But what I want to know is did their family fashion stylist look into a crystal ball? How is it possible that these average, everyday Americans look like they’re dressed for the royal wedding? Kate and William’s royal wedding…53 years in the future?

Long live the Queen of England wannabe on the right!

Here’s to Americana Royalty, you mums, your mum and mine!

Happy Mother’s Day!
