When I was a child, I wanted to become The Little Princess, and then I wanted to own The Secret Garden, then I wanted to become Laura and Mary Ingalls and do what they do in their little house in the prairie. When I transitioned to reading more mature books, I wanted to become the heroine in each of Sidney Sheldon’s books (strong and fierce) but also be carried away as a damsel in distress by the male characters in Judith McNaught’s books. All my life I’ve lived in a double-standard society where women are expected to achieve much but expected to behave in a certain way. This double-standard society I continue to embrace and hate (sometimes at the same time).
Anyhow, this is an outfit post. My friend and I played dress-up in her daughter’s first birthday. She was Kate Middleton, I was “another duchess.” LOL. I’m wearing a thrifted but brand-new-with-tag dress from Taobao.com, thrifted faux-leather bag, and thrifted shoes.
