Moonlighting and Camouflage



Hi everybody!
I got this dress sometime last year on a thrifting trip with my Mom. I loved the dropped waist, and the handkerchief hem. I was in a 'twenties' vibe that day. I got home with it and realized it has a hole in the bottom. My Mom, being a seamstress just said to 'fix' it. So, I cut, I chopped and stitched and re-stitched the darn thing until it was wearable. Bet ya can't even tell :) 
It was easily camouflaged -  Which got me thinking...
There has always been a time honored tradition of camouflage.
I'm not talking about the kind used in Vietnam, or just fixing a rip in a dress - but the way we try to hide our 'flaws' or just improve on what the good lord gave us. And yes, it's generally the ladies who take part in this kind of cammo. It's genetic, dating back to cavemen days - the need to appear young to continue to procreate. To remain desirable.

It began for most of us in our teens. Zit cream, perms to give our flat hair 'Farrah' locks, and earlier teens teased their hair to monumental heights and donned really bright red lipstick. (Another sign of youth - a post-sex lip glow...). Even the photos from the 30's  had fake pink cheeks and really blue eyes painted onto their black and white photos.
Then, there was the first on camera TV image I really noticed a new type of cammo. It was unforgettable to me. The show Moonlighting! Cybill Shepherd had a angelic glow, but Bruce Willis looked normal.
Bruce finally caught on...
Today, we have mad skills and products to hide our perceived 'flaws'. A bathroom full of youth. Hair color is a staple in mine. Base, false lashes, curling irons, "repair" creams, spackle, staples and so on...
 Of course, If you have the cash, You can make such flaws completely disappear. 
Poof! Your 50 year old ass is now 25!
They can even make you look just like a Barbie...
However, for us Bloggers, we have a much easier, 
more sophisticated kind of camouflage. 
We call it PHOTOSHOP! Picmonkey, Lunapics, and PhotoMania!
 We have our secret poses to hide our belly fat, boobs and even turkey neck!
My hat's off to all the beautiful, smooth skinned, thin 40-somethings out there who don't need a little cammo. But, I also gotta give props where props are due! YOU GO Picmonkey! Blur my fine lines, and while you're at it, could you do something about my ass?

It's a Celebration



Ah, I know. It's getting old - 
All this darkness with it's cold.
But never fear - It's almost here,
Soon we'll don our saved-up gear....
As in Spring stuff! Bare legs with boots, flowy tunics and all that garb.....
So today I'm celebrating the last official day of Winter.

 While 'celebrating' on the sofa, I got a package today from across the pond that made me so happy :) Ohh, what could it be? It's in pink wrapping! Eek! I love packages! Such a sweet surprise can twist an ordinary day into a special day. It show's how much you are thought of, and is a permanent grin guarantee for the rest of the day. I can't wait to wear it tomorrow! She knows me so well! Now, I am going though some of my treasures to send to her, as well as a few other wonderful ladies I've grown to love. I believe that sending a package will be even more fun than getting one! So, tomorrow you will see the present and of course I will gush about how wonderful she is :)
