My Best

Saturday, I mentioned that my most viewed photo on flickr is not what I consider my best photo.

In response, I received an unsolicited e-mail from a long-time reader of the blog, who wrote, "Attached is my favorite photo of you. As you may recall, I prefer flaring, swishy skirts and dress bottoms. I know this is a photo of you from years ago, but I just adore the dress, your pose, and how lovely and feminine you look."

The photo in question is 22 years old, so I was in my mid-40s at the time. My makeup skills were still under development, but at that age, makeup skills were not deal-breaker. What was a deal-breaker was that I was so closeted when that photo was taken. "Youth is wasted on the young" sure applies in this case!

  1. You always seem to look much younger in your photos than you are. I thought at first glance that you were maybe 30 here but no. You make a very attractive woman.

  2. Definitely wasted Meg's youth. She was locked away when I was in my 20's ~ I weighed under 125 (28" waist) and had brown hair past my shoulders. If only I could get that body back again, just to see what I could do with it!

    1. I haven't weighed 125 since I was in second grade! LOL

  3. Dear Stana,

    Thank You for posting this gorgeous photo again. I agree with the "long-time reader" ... she's very familiar to me (wink wink, nudge nudge). She called the outfit a dress. Looking more closely, I see a belt. So, the ensemble may be a blouse and skirt. Either way, it is GORGEOUS and so beautifully feminine, and you look adorable in it. The classic black patent pumps are perfect with the outfit. Sometimes when I dress in a similar fashion, after dressing, applying my makeup, and completing my look (including ultra-feminine lingerie underneath), I sob tears of ecstasy ... I am SO HAPPY to be a girl when I have the chance ... it is indescribably WONDERFUL!



    1. Thank you again for the kind words, Sheila. It is a dress - one piece - not a blouse and skirt.
