old soul

Ok so I have came to the conclusion that besides the fact that there might actually be a gay boy inside of my straight girl body, there also might be an 50 year old in there too. I can remember back in middle school for my obsession with all things "ancient" or as the kids these days are calling it, vintage. In junior high I would wear my hair in this "monroe" inspired curly do and yes I worn red cherry lipstick. That made me look beyond my years. I would walk around the halls and say "How do yo do?" to my teachers in a low whisper just like the girls back then use to say it. As the years progressed I became a HUGE fan of Audrey Hepburn. It was a rainy day and I sat down on the couch and watched 'Roman Holiday' on AMC, which I believe is one of her first movies and she won an Academy Award as well if I'm not mistaken. I wanted to BE her.100% Audrey. Unlike the actresses I grew up seeing these girls had class, they worn heels and lipstick to throw out the trash.(HAHA that rhymes!!) And instead of tack tongue rings , they wouldnt be caught without their diamonds.

And this goes for music too. I grew up listening to the oldies:Marvin Gaye, Al Green, The Temptations,Aretha Franklin and the list goes on. My brother always blasted underground rap too, my family always liked the underground which influenced the person I am today in fashion,music my life style etc. I love all things old, things that can tell a story. In high school the 60's wave hit me harder then an Hippies acid trip. I feel in love with Edie Segwick, Any Warhol and the factory,Twiggy, Brigitte Bardot and all things MOD. During this time I would wear these short babydoll dresses to school with my black leggings, what a weird one I was...

Even today Im still an old soul my music tatse goes from the The Andrew Sisters to the Beatles and Neil Young to Motley Crue and Journey. Its all over. Even for rap I like old school rap from the 90's. Maybe my old soul is why Im despreate to find another cherry red lipstick. I guess somethings you can never get over...

This song,this band the lyrics it means alot to me, I feel the words

And this is for the lovely Audrey Hepburn...
