Long, long ago......

Once upon a time, long, long ago, before I chose motherhood, I created clothes.
I considered myself a special occasion and evening wear designer.
My label was carried in small boutiques as well as a shop inside the Nordstrom mall called,
IN SAN FRANCISCO.
I loved designing, enjoyed creating the first outfit and especially loved seeing the great photos that
Robert Buhl Photography did for me!
I pulled these out the other day and frightened myself when I realized the clothes I had designed
are now considered "RETRO" !

They actually they look like they could now come back into style!

Heels clicking together of my red ruby slippers......"I'm not that old, I'm not that old, I'm not that old......"

But I did live happily ever after!

Heehee, but they looked fabulous! And you got to live the dream, m'dear, with the proof in pictures! :p

So impressive! I love how people re-invent themselves through the different stages of their lives, it keeps things fresh and interesting. And the retro realization is a hoot! Time sure does fly!

Terisa- Such beautiful clothes!! Oh me. Now I am afraid to send you my hat. I don't think I will get to post it today. It's just not quite finished. I, like you, will probably be over-nighting it.
Why can I not focus on one thing at a time?

It's so great to hear about other Mother's lives "BK" (Before Kids). It's great to relive those days! Hugs!
