Genetic Taffeta

I have a little gift for you my little Valentines. Today I'm linking up with Glowless to share what I love most about myself. You get to find out a little bit more about me!
Yes.  I can see you jumping up and down and clapping your hands with delight!!

I considered expressing the love for myself in the form of Liturgical dance, however I realised that my leotard was still in the wash and I didn't wish to force you to watch a Madonna style routine by a short lady wearing a fluro leotard covered in bacon and egg stains. (Yes, I wear my leotard to Sunday breakfast...don't you?)

I was inspired by Madam Bipolar to express myself fashionably.  Here I am expressing my love with a photo of myself that has a shitload of writing around it.




 Now you're probably wondering "Where in the hell did you get that dress!! It's fucking beautiful. I want one!"

The answer to that is nowhere. This dress forms part of my genetic makeup. I was born in this dress, complete with a full head of frizzy hair covered in baby's breath.

In fact this is my first baby photo taken in 1974. I was fashionably advanced for my age and was born in the 70's dressed like the 80s. The doctors were amazed, my mother was screaming. Well she did just push out a rather large lavender taffeta clad baby complete with purple stilettos. I also believe she got a rather nasty infection from the baby's breath.

Happy St. Valentines Day!! What do you love about me yourself?

  2. Bahahaha your poor mother. I imagine a baby's breath infection would be rather painful. Kudos for the picture with a shitload of words around it, but, if I'm honest, I'm so disappointed at the lack of liturgical dance... would have brought back awesome and yet entirely scary memories.
    Happy Valentine's Day x

    1. My apologies for not including liturgical dance routine. I am still working on the final moves.

  3. Lol. Love the photo but I have to tell you I feel so sorry for your mother giving birth not only to a fully grown person but a fully grown person in a dress with fancy hair. That has GOT to hurt.

  4. LOL I bet, in spite of the baby's breath infection, your mum was so proud of the fact that she'd given birth to an 80s fashion icon!
