83. Do you remember the first time you were conscious of what you were wearing? Can you describe this moment and what it was about?
I think it was in 7th grade when I started to kind of get into the fashion and style thing.
I don't remember.
Yes. Five years old. A brown dress with little fringes on the front. Thought of it as my cow-girl dress. Am playing outside in the garden in it.
Once when i attended a conference with primarily men and I wished I had dresses differently.
When I was 4 or 5 my granma took me shopping to choose a birthday gift and I got this yellow plastic heart shaped necklace. On my birthday I put it on with a pink summer dress, and a sun hat. I can still remember what it felt like to be inside that outfit. I'd still wear it to be honest.
Yes. When I was 13 and bought an orange faus-fur trimmed cardigan. It was an absurd thing, but an important piece I wore all the time, the first time I went out of my comfort zone and decided I would embrace the different.
a beautiful dress and Doc Martins..you are not wearing those boots are you?..It was from someone who mattered to me,I felt conscious..wore the heels and suffered standing most of the night..this was the last time.
I had a couple of wigs for dress-up as a little kid, and loved wearing them. The idea that you could "become" someone else by sticking something on your head was thrilling to me. And I believed at that time that no one would even recognize me, ha.
