My Girl

Sis is nutty fun! She makes me laugh out loud. Her zany, fun, opinionated style of dress is a hoot. She marches to the beat of her own drum. If the outfit is REALLY off the chart I don't sweat it too much. She will change within the hour anyway... a few times.


  1. When I look at her dressing style, I think about this poem:

    When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
    With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
    And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
    And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter.

    I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired
    And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
    And run my stick along the public railings
    And make up for the sobriety of my youth.

    I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
    And pick the flowers in other peoples' gardens
    And learn to spit.

    You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
    And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
    Or only bread and pickles for a week
    And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes.

    But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
    And pay our rent and not swear in the street
    And set a good example for the children.
    We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.

    But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
    So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
    When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.

    by Jenny Joseph

    If your girl walks to the beat of a different drummer now- just think about what she will be like someday, lol. love her!
