Yesterday, someone remarked that I was dressed "very sixties". I made no reply, and certainly didn't begrudge them their view. I could see how they might see my look as a 60s look. However, the title of yesterday's post makes it clear that I (underline I) was trying to work a "Girl's Guide to Hunting and Fishing" look, not a 60s look. Today, reflecting on yesterday, the following quote came to mind. It is spoken by Humpty Dumpty in Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking-Glass: "When I use a word ... it means just what I choose it to mean -- neither more nor less". When someone chooses a particular look, they mean it be exactly what they choose it be ... and not what someone else might think it is. Which is probably why I like to appreciate others' looks, but I don't like to label them. It is what it is to them, and I don't want to take that away from them. And, it is what it is to me, and they need never know about it. (Okay, how about a 60s "Girl's Guide to Hunting and Fishing" look?) As for today's look, it's another 60s western look, of course.
