I have absolutely no fashion sense. I know what I like and I usually wear what I like despite fashion, sex appeal, or Labor Day rules.
I am a Wrangler girl. Or, a Levi Strauss girl. Both brands were bought from Wiener’s Department store.
Jeans were my choice of apparel because more could be done in jeans. It didn’t matter if you were running, or jumping, or climbing, or hanging upside down because nothing “unmentionable” could be seen and denim was allowed to be dirty, or ripped.
I didn’t particularly care for dresses.
Well, that’s not entirely true. I loved dresses that twirled. If they were “plain jane” what was the point in wearing them? I didn’t turn any more heads in those dresses than I did in my Wranglers or Levi’s.
There was one more plus to wearing jeans…
I could wear my favorite shirt. It was pink.
I know, shocking! My favorite shirt was pink!
But, I didn’t care about the color since the quote written on the shirt summed up my whole attitude, reason for living, and belief system.
People would see me coming and know EXACTLY what I was about. It gave me leave to prove it as well, which I did regularly.
So, exactly what was the quote on my shirt you ask?
“ANYTHING BOYS CAN DO, GIRLS CAN DO BETTER!”
Score for me, for girls everywhere, and for my mother who had the sense to buy it for me.
