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.
