After posting about the different levels of being vintage, I wanted to show some examples of my different "selves."
Here is 18 year old me (on the far left):
(Look at my eyebrows! Who was I trying to channel? Joan Crawford!? Can we say "cosmetic intervention" or what!
Here is college ROTC me with my-then fiance/future husband:
(Here is something funny: look carefully on my face, I actually put on a fake beauty mark with a brown eyeliner! HAHAHAAHAHA! I did this for several years and then I realized how stupid I was! I finally got a tattooed beauty mark (it looks so real my mom thought it was real!) on my right cheek in 2008. My good friend and tattoo artist did it! She made it with different shades of color for depth and realism!)
This is me just before a VNV Nation show last July:
(My hair was actually cut into a short black bob. The rest is a headband wig!)
This is me last night after running 3 and 1/2 miles:
Running is an addiction for me now. I love it. I still cannot believe there was a time when the mere thought of walking was too much for me! Running clears my head, helps me relax, and it is a great way to rock out on the iPod! (I am wearing an old Cure shirt from college in this photo. It is so thin now! But 15 years ago, I used to wear it with a short plaid skirt, black tights, and combat boots to class. I was into Adrienne Rich and taking women's studies then. What a badass I thought I was! lol!)
No matter what what unfolds in the day for me, I am always going to be vintage!
