Blast from (my) past...


I have always had an ‘off’ dress sense and it hasn’t changed much. Black Victoriana, corsets, leather, purple tights, fake leopard fur and jumble sale dresses have always been there. I have always hated bare legs (on me and others), sleeveless tops, short skirts and white shoes.  My attitude to blondeness has been ambivalent and tanning is a strange diversion and for me, more daring than a rubber dress.  I found an old image of me, taken in Japan at the end of 2004. Rocking the 30’s. I like the perm, but sadly curls and colour seem to be impossible (cue sharp intakes of breath from every hairdresser I know). I am never going to regularly set or have a hair rolling routine. Life is too short.  I don’t look as nice now. I put it down to the much higher income, thrice weekly journey to the gymnasium and huge amounts of cocktails consumed in those days.  I’m posting a picture of the bearded one from about the same era, just because.

Me in late 2004, Yokohama Japan.

Bearded one at about the same time...

As far as I can tell given the way you're sitting in that photo, what a good dress!

Very alluring photo of you from Japan. And as I suspected the Beared One's dress has become more eccentric over the years. But then I'm of the casual 60s/70s school of dress: less is more. :-)

I think you look absolutely marvelous in that photograph! And I loved everything you mentioned. I think it's best to have an off dress sense, the hair dying, mall clothing uniform, it's all so boring. I'm no longer a fan of short skirts either..I'm pretty happy owning only one for the rest of my life.

I hope to visit Japan one day, I've always been interested in the culture.
