Now, My long term and long suffering friends know I used to wear black... Corsets.... I always had red black or purple black hair.. I would like to one day dye my hair all red with a black streak but that will be when I have time and my friends can help with the bleach. My hair is ways chemically cut by bleach so maybe another $600 profession session is required. I dunno.
That's not the point...
I have been trying for a few weeks to lighten my red streak to try pink.. Just felt winter needed a warm bright colour. Or cause none of my clothes will suit... Being black and red mostly. Some green has drifted in over the past year.
Also not the point.
What I have noticed is.. I have moved away from. Corsets and feeling terrible because nothing is in my plus size. Things state a cm for waist and chest but when you get them.. They don't fit and if you squeeze in... Doesn't flatter. Besides at over 40 I should lengthen my shirts... Lower my heels (maybe I rarely wear them out anyway) and we'll, accept that I am not a beautiful pin up girl.
The past two years have been hell. I had given up on myself and stopped trying. I wore bigger and bigger t~shirts and moved to elastic pull up jeans. I stopped even wearing make up. (my eye liner is tattooed)
Most of my friends loved me anyway.
. In January. It occurred to me that I had a good friend and a husband who have been nothing but fabulous and supportive . If they hadn't given up.. Why had I ?
I went back to my pin up hair ideas and make up and from here found a shop that sold 1950s fashion. This flattered even the biggest girl. They are be fabulous. Why can't I be too?
I now have 4 dresses. I haven't worn a dress since I was 6 years old. I have two skirts that look fabulous.
Guys at work made a big deal out if a simple thing (a skirt) but screw them. I don't have to be dowdy.
To this aim and to end this Ramble.
I present pink. Hair and dress plus one edited by Kevin to make it neon. Hope he doesn't mind.
Also... Go and see this beautiful girl, Emma Victoria a stunner who looks beyond fantastic in her 1950s style. Size and age are no barrier. All women are fabulous.. Some of us just need reminding.
