When I was a child my mother always rented classic
cinema and I became interested in musicals and cinema
of the 30's and 40's. That is when when I became enticed
by the glamour of the stars of yesteryear. I loved
escaping into the elegance of film stars such as Betty
Grable, Rita Hayworth, and Jean Harlow.
Into my teen years, I continued to have a curiosity
in mid- century glamour. I began collecting clothing
from the 1920's- 1950's. Mere collecting took hold
of me, and I quickly found myself learning the details
of dressing vintage, and proceeded to dress in the
style daily. I learned women were immaculately dressed
from head to toe. I loved how marvelous the elegant
foundations were. Girdles, garter belts, corsets,
and nylon full fashioned stockings, danced in my head!
I think it funny that my first boyfriend probably
thought all girls wear girdles and merry widows. My
college boyfriend was interested in me because he
saw my stocking tops and garter during class, and
he was the first stocking fetishist I had encountered
at that time. Let's say we were a great match because
most girls on campus wore PJ pants and sweat pants
to class. I stuck out because I wore skirts, sweaters,
heels, and stockings daily. Everyone always asked
why I was so "over dressed". But I am used
to being "over dressed" everywhere I go.
I consider everyone else under dressed.
To this day I still dress in girdles and stockings
daily. For me this isn't a modeling look but my everyday
look. I am not the type of woman who lounges around
the house in sweat pants and jeans. I actually lounge
around in a proper slip and robe if I want to be comfortable.
I actually feel very uncomfortable in public when
I do not have my proper foundations on under my outfits.
