Hey 14

Daily Prompt From You to You Write a letter to your 14-year-old self. Tomorrow, write a letter to yourself in 20 years.

It’s going to be what it is and I’m not going to wreck it for you with any warnings or revelations, not even words of encouragement. Here is your high school graduation picture, so you know that you’re going to have an absurd white faux-fur dress (you’ll sew it yourself) and you’ll graduate high school AND I’m 63; that does tell you something. 😉

  1. OK, love this take on the “write a letter to yourself” – the kind of thing that usually ends up being a wallow, all angsty and stuff.

    A comment, and a question: lovely eyes and long lashes. But the dress? Were you not over-warm in faux fur?

    • I thought it was crushed velvet (very chic for 1969) I made it for the Christmas dance. The photo was taken in summer… I think back then I was more about ideas than reality. It wasn’t easy to make a dress with a gathered skirt out of this stuff, either, but it had lace edges on the cuffs and sparkly buttons on the leg-o-mutton sleeves.
