Mumu, MuuMuu, MooMoo – your granny’s favorite thing to wear. It’s all the same thing. I never thought much of MooMoos until I first got my own apartment. Lounge wear became a bit of an obsession for me at that time. Everything I wore at home had to be comfortable, and it had to keep me warm since I’m generally always cold. I’ve always known that I’m a granny. I loved hanging out with my Grannies at home and at the beauty shop, I was in the knitting club in high school, and I started calling all the kids in my family “baby” very early on. I don’t see it as a negative thing, though. The first time I wore a MooMoo, everything was right in my world. Sounds funny, but comfort is my thing. Even if I am sort of a fashion blogger, kind of. One of my top priorities is feeling good. That’s why you don’t catch me in heels often lol. MooMoos may seem effortless to some, but it takes a bit of sass (plus top of drawing in your eyebrows) to look flawless in a MooMoo while crocheting.
You know MooMoos are infiltrating the culture when they’re talked about on podcasts. I recently listened to the newest episode of Jade + XD and Jade was so excited to show off her new MooMoos to XD. She’d even gone with the girls (Fran & Crissle) to shop for a bunch of them. That’s my kinda MooMoo obsession. I have a super hot (heat-wise) 70s one that I inherited from my sis, who inherited it from our NeeNee. I also have an orange one with black/African ladies and glitter all over it that I inherited from my Aunti Lil. This purple beauty, though, is a find of my own. I found it in one of my favorite thrift stores in Fayetteville, AR right next to a matching men’s shirt. They’re both from Hawaii, so I really wonder about the story behind it. I really love finding pieces like this.
