I must wear plaid and garbadeine NOT




I was going through some pics yesterday, I found this one, yikes. I look like I stepped out of a horror movie lol, I spose I thought I looked good at the time.


Time....about 6 months ago


Place....Friends 50 th Birthday.

The other pic is when I first got my glasses, (About 18 months ago) so I thought I would dye my hair red, yikes, a bit different lol, I have now gond back to blonde lol.


Its mine in another 7 months, so I spose I'm not doiong so bad for and ole chickie hey. It could be worse lol.


I was reflecting back, who said when you get to a certain age you must dress a certain way. I remember my mum dressing like a very old woman when she was only about 40 but that was the 60s, back then woman were made to feel old very early on. Once you were a married woman with children you tended to forget about fashions and looking super good, after all your job was done, you had snagged your hubby had your children, made your home etc. You had no need to look good hey.


How wrong did they get it. Apart from the obligatory trackie and slippers in the mornings I could no more wear old fogie clothes than swim in the lake in winter.


I like to be able to wear the latest fashions if I want to, pull on a pair of skinny jeans and bubble top if Iwant to, not that I want to do the latter very often lol.


But I do enjoy and pair of jeans and a white top, or a litle sundress if it is very hot.


I guess I am lucky I have been relatively thin all my life, I did have a patch there after my child was born where I put on a lot of weight, so I know what it is like to be over weight, its not nice.


Anyway I thought I would dig out some pics of me when I was a child, some of the creations my cousin made for me were nothing short of hip and mod, well it was the 70s after all, you know cycadelic 70s lol, (Well some of you will) oh how I loved the 70s, but I think I will leave that for another post lol.


Cheers Debra.
