Scent of a Woman

1Scent of a woman

Women! What can you say? Who made ’em? God must have been a fuckin’ genius. The hair… They say the hair is everything, you know. Have you ever buried your nose in a mountain of curls… just wanted to go to sleep forever? Or lips… and when they touched, yours were like… that first swallow of wine… after you just crossed the desert.

~Al Pacino as Lt. Colonel Frank Slade in “Scent of a Woman”

I love this movie. It is my favourite Pacino film. While this quote inspired the movie’s title, the movie is actually about integrity, living with one’s mistakes and accepting the consequences, unexpected friendships and passion. Oh, such passion.

There is little that is not to love about it.

There is also little not to love about this jumpsuit from Salt & Pepper, available at this month’s round of Shiny Shabby. Correction – there is everything to love about this jumpsuit! It hugs your sexy curves, has a demure collar and a delightful chain on the back. Very classy, yet definitely an outfit that will drive a man to indulge in the scent of a woman.

1 At Heaven's Door

Blue is the colour of my world today.

Reaching out for heaven, finding only misty clouds.
Stars that twinkle brightly, then dim as they grow near.
In shadows dwell the answers. I hold them close, yet like raindrops in a river, they blend and wash away.

Blue is the colour of my world today.

I Used To Be A Dancer, But Now I’m Just (Re)tired

1 I Used To Be A Flapper

Have you ever seen those older ladies who don’t dress their age? I don’t mean that they’re sporting skinny jeans and piercings – I mean they’re fully made up and wearing the clothes they wore when they were young and desirable. Depending on their era, it might be a poodle skirt and twin set or a flapper dress and feathered headband.

I want to be like that when I grow up. Never forgetting the time when I was a bit of a bombshell. When heads turned to see “the girl in the hat.” When I knew how to flirt but not be a tease. When I was the centre of attention and loving every moment.

That is a gift that takes a lot of confidence to pull off. I hope I remember how I danced like tomorrow wasn’t coming. How I had the world in my hands and I was never letting go.

The dress and headpiece I’m wearing are from Salt & Pepper at the Vintage & Cool Fair. No, they’re not the era I grew up in, but they evoked the memory of a time when I was the dancer, and not just (re)tired.
