{Life} A Couple of Memories

Memory Photo

Some of my earliest memories revolve around clothes. My Mum says I started dressing myself from a very early age and although at the age of five I wasn't making the best sartorial decisions, I certainly had fun with it. Layers seemed to be my thing, as well as pairing the unexpected. I kept sketchbooks full of fashion drawings and pretty much had it set in my mind that I would be a world famous designer.

The first photo is of one of my oldest friends, Emma, and I. I love this image, and the adult me is impressed with our looks. Maxi skirts and shirt dresses? We were the bomb.

The other image is my sister at the front (with the Troll Doll!! Sooo 90s), my cousin Polly with the lace cuffed cut-offs and me in the floral frilled dress. We are in the backyard of our Grandparents house. Their house holds such a strong place in my mind, I will never forget the fun we had playing in that yard.

I'd love to hear some of your clothing memories if you feel like sharing.

Oh, and I said I had some big news? I GOT MY LICENSE TODAY. LIKE A BOSS.

  2. Um, just need to correct you -- my cousin had troll dolls in the 60s! They and the Barbies mixed and mingled. Kinda kinky, actually.

    Love your memories. That first shot of you and Emma in the jungle is a beauty!

    I was very terse in my post. I don't remember summer of 1960 all that well...
    Glad to have "met" you through IFB
