What else do you want to be when you grow up?

Femulating The Supremes
Besides playing mommy in kindergarten, I occasionally played fashion model at home. After waking up, I would strip off my pajamas, wrap a bedsheet around my body simulating a long evening gown and strut down the imaginary catwalk in my bedroom. (I completely forgot about playing fashion model until I started writing this post!)

A little older, I became a 1960s rocker and The Supremes was one of my favorite groups from that era. In my opinion, their sound epitomized Motown in the 1960s. I bought most of their 45s and some of their LPs during the singing group’s heyday.

In addition to their music, I loved their style. (I think I loved their style before I loved their music.) The gowns they wore on their television appearances were fab and I dreamed about starting my own singing group just so I could dress like them.

One thing holding me back was my singing voice or lack thereof. It may have prevented me from performing as the lead singer of “Stana and the Starlites,” but it did not prevent me from buying and wearing fabulous evening gowns. On a couple of occasions, I even lip-synced while wearing one!
