Style in the Years Ahead

Me Now...
People can make fun of the thick glasses all they want, I really am blind as a bat. I used to wear glasses to try and hide my big nose when I was younger. I also never wore shorts or skirts because some kid yelled "chicken legs" to me when I was in the 9th grade. It took me a looooong time to start dressing girly. I remember my 1st super nerd glasses I picked up from some cute super old Russian man in the Village in NYC when I was about 21? I broke those by trying to bend them back to shape so sad, they were so great. I'll try to find a pic and post it.
Hopefully me in another few years (i'm getting up there in age)
I already have similar boots-my Blundstones-love them so much. I love her jacket and her scarf. Hopefully i'll live somewhere where I can wear winter clothes more than one month out of the year.

WE're all getting old! I had the same thing happen to me when I was in school. This guy told me I had chicken legs and I never wore anything short for years!!

i have a small collection of these printed cotton stuffed advert characters.. they are always in gross condition but i find them so compelling.

the gross condition gives them character and leaves you wondering. I almost bought that lil guy for you bcuz he was only $2.50..then i saw that they wanted to charge nearly $10 in shipping and said SCREW THEM damn ebay sellers who charge so much for shipping. grrrr..

Like the skirt. However, regardless of chicken leggs or not, i rarely wear skirts up here where is is winter for more than one month! The grass is not always greener on the other side.
