Hollister moms. It's a term I've coined recently. I never really paid much attention to the people who go in and out of Hollister, American Eagle, and other similar stores until I started to go to the mall again.

What am I talking about?

30-40 year old women baked a deep tan wearing "MALIBU" shirts too small for them and short shorts, shopping in Hollister (known for dimly lit stores with clothing designed for teens and young adults) for their 8 year old children. Usually have hair fried from too many bleaching incidents.

What other kind of "moms gone wrong" make you cringe?

The gracious mom is a relic of the past. Endangered species.

There isn't much conservation initiative in the wild today.

If they look good and can pull off the younger look then more power to them. It's a lot better than the "mom jeans and white sneakers" look. I'll take the fake tan and bleached hair over the frumpy look any day. But I do agree that there needs to be appropriate fashion sense within the boundaries of taste and it should be age appropriate as well.

There are a couple of ladies who I consider friends, who I see out at the Friday or Saturday night dances. Both of these ladies have children who are almost my age (45) and they dress like 20 year olds - very short skirts, halter tops, etc. Don't get me wrong, I like these ladies a lot and they are very nice, but I just don't have the heart to tell them they look ridiculous. But, as long as they are having a good time out dancing, who am I to judge?

How 'bout the Mom I saw at our elementary school waiting to pick up her child. She was wearing a tight little t-shirt that said "Looking For A Meaningful One Night Stand" - Lovely. (NOT).

Haha...I went on a field trip with my sons class and there was another group from another school there as well. There was a mom there in HOT PANTS, A SUPER TIGHT T SHIRT hugging her double d's and high heels!!

my friend who is 42 dresses like a teenager and her teenager daughter is to embarrassed to go anywhere with her. She will literally call me or her grandmother to take her places because she is ashamed to be out in public with her mom who dresses provocatively. She even said she got teased at school. I think people should dress age appropriate.
