I wanted to write something thoughtful to accompany these images, but sometimes images should be left to speak for themselves (which is just a cope out way of saying my brain isn’t feeling that stream of consciousness right now). So, that’s what I’ll let them do.
I look bored in these photos, as I usually do. I like that vibe for whatever reason – bored and sultry, maybe a little pained. Yes, I may look bored and pained to even be existing, but I am anything but in life and I feel lucky to be able to say that. That, plain and simply, makes me happy. Also wearing vintage lingerie and sleep wear makes me happy. I wish I could just live in it all the days of my life. Garments now are just not made with same quality and care, which is rather puzzling. In theory, things should improve with time when we have gained more knowledge and experience through trial and error. But it seems to me, with clothes, it has become cheaper quality at cut costs. A brassiere that has been around since 1960 and is still in great condition?! That’s what I’m talking about! Your Victoria Secret bra will not stand the test of time, I give her 1-3 yrs, tops (depending on the use she gets) While my bullety friend over here will probably live to 70…maybe more. She’s an old girl already, and myself and my twins love her dearly.
