Funny how things work out. The last time I blogged about this dress it was still short and I mentioned about letting it be full length again one day. Two years later and it is 'one day'. It's still the exact same dress, but just by changing the length it seems like the whole character of the dress changes. And the dress's short period as a short dress only adds to the stories it has attached to it. Now it feels fully 70s again. To break away from the vintage reflections I just added a pair of chunky heels (that look a bit wonky here, though).
Like I said a wee while back I went to an art exhibition opening last month and this is what I wore. And unlike the fact that I post dozens of pictures of myself (not to mention how many I actually take..) for everyone to see suggests, I'm not actually too much of an exhibitionist. Just an exhibition-goer and more likely to enjoy seeing an exhibition than being it myself. I often think about how much of a contrast to my younger self I've become, though. I still wouldn't describe a young Laura as an exhibitionist in a way of being attention seeking but I did like being the centre of attention and more than often was. I could also be incredibly loud and outgoing, which would come and comes as a surprise to people who've met me later in life now that I'm so much more reserved, quiet and - at times - frankly unsociable. And people who've only known as me a child/young teen would not believe how much I've calmed down. Funny how things work out.
There's some randomish thoughts on the transformation of both this vintage dress and my characteristics. (One new characteristic of mine seems to be touching my hair and/or head in literally every picture. Haha, what a tit!) Now as I'm writing this it's getting to that time of night when I meticulously start counting how many hours and minutes there is until the alarm goes off, so I better hurry up before it gets to less than
