Boots polished to a mirror shine.
Crisply ironed jeans.
It’s the way I want to present myself to me.
My partner of 39 years.
And the world.
People notice me when I’m out in public. And it’s my comfort zone.
I’ve been doing this since I finished university in my homeland. The USA.
My first job straight out of university, in 1964, was working for the Dean Of The School Of Business. At George Washington University. In Washington DC.
In those days, professors at university. And their staff. Walked the hallowed halls of dressing up.
As a fresh university graduate, I was clearly out of my depth.
Soon after I started working there, a flier appeared on the desk of all the administrative staff.
If you want to look terrific. Come to our modelling school for night classes. On how to use makeup. Dress to suit your body shape. And walk with dignity.
I couldn’t sign up fast enough.
Those classes changed my life.
I learned how to use makeup in an elegant. But subtle way.
I learned how to dress in an elegant style.
And I learned how to walk with dignity.
Yes. We did the books on the head. And walked in a circle. Until we mastered it.
And I learned that ironing is a joy.
And it makes a huge difference to the way my clothes look. And how I look.
I lead an elegant life. Always have.
This is just part one.
Stay tuned for more.
