My Backyard is VERY frightful. There is a dead tree back there that i believe to have the same nature as one of the ghoulish, angry, apple throwing tree beasts off of Wizard Of Oz.
Except instead of apples it's those little spiky things i used to call "Gum Balls"
When i was a kid.
Speaking of which, My whole life i told myself that i would NEVER
wear leopard! It was the stuff of old people, i thought.
Or at least old women who had lost touch with reality and were stumbling through
a wild midlife crisis begging for some recognition.
I know, "What a judgmental little brat!" you're thinking.
Well, maybe i was. But i was probably 14 and lacking some SERIOUS perspective on the world around me.
Anyhow.... In my recent years i've had a change of heart.
I think it took seeing the print on women who i could relate to.
This coat is actually from the 1960's and it belonged to My Grandmother
at one point. Who by the way, is one of my big style icons!
(though she probably has no idea.) She's a real class act
and i adore wearing this coat for that reason.
Or perhaps i like wearing it because to me it represents confidence
and insecurity. Both of which, i most certainly am.
Thanks for reading,
