Scenes from a Class Struggle

For those of you who grew up with her but never noticed, I'd like to draw your attention to a very special lady.

The lady with a strapless dress who never has to re-adjust.

Recently, while rewatching season 7, I came across the episode "Scenes from a Class Struggle in Springfield." This episode entails Marge trying to fit in with old class mates because of an old Chanel suit she finds at a thrift store.

While those of us in the real world could never hope to find a Chanel suit in a thrift store. She reinvents hers at least a dozen times in order to fit in with her old peers. The cutting of a Chanel suit sacrilege is compensated by her creativity with it. I want to draw your attention to her innovation and stick-to-itiveness that prevail. The things she comes up with are really what make the episode special. For someone like myself who looks at the same dress everyday with disdain, I am challenging myself to take a Marge Simpson approach to things - See them in a new light and reinvent. You may find something there that you didn't see before.

Let us know what you come up with,

Love you, mean it
