Pockets: A Rant

When you spend the whole month in one dress, you learn things. One of the things I am learning is that not having pockets is bogus.

Can we all just stop for a minute and assess what century we are in? Oh, hey, that's right, it's the 21st century! We have all kinds of technology and the Internet and stuff-- we have phones!

Okay, enough sarcasm, but seriously, in this modern age, what is a lady to do with her phone if she doesn't have pockets? (I keep mine tucked into my bra strap, but it's awkward pulling that out around, say, your grandfather. Plus, my baby notices it's there and goes digging for it.)

I think I'm going to make a pledge at the end of this year's ODP to only buy dresses with pockets in 'em. I should add it to the FAQs:

Q. Should I get a dress with pockets?
A. Without a doubt.


  1. I even added that to my list last year, and yet AGAIN bought a dress with no pockets. So I am carrying my phone around with me, and have already dropped it once, ON A HOSPITAL FLOOR!! EEEWWW!!! So yes, I even have chosen skirts with pockets for that reason. And I can't place my phone in my bra because I have taught my daughter that I don't want her ever doing that. Le Sigh.

  2. I totally agree. I love dresses with pockets. I'm dying right now without them!
