Holiday Conversation #3

My new year was spent with at a beach with a bunch of old friends from university. Collectively we were a carbon earthquake as there were four plus two small people from England, two plus one small person from the States, one from Cambodia and three from New Zealand.

And there was a bit of a mutual fashion admiration fan club going on.

'That's a fantastic dress Kate, is it vintage?' Asked Butcheredversionofmaidenname.

'Well, it smelled vintage when it arrived. It started out at $4 on Trademe! But I am loving your shorts, who made them?'

'Prada.'

'Yup, that'll explain them.'

That is very kind of you, Anonymous.

I'm guessing it wasn't the person from Cambodia who was in the Prada shorts.

And I'm sure Anonymous meant well. You used to be crap but you're improving is what I'm sure they didn't mean to say.

You're so right, Tinman!

Shorts don't work for me, but even if I were to don a pair, I'd never spend that kind of cash. You could buy 2 or 3 great dresses for what they cost, I'm guessing.

That's the thing, I have always struggled with shorts but these were incredibly cool.

Shorts are just pants you cut the legs off when the knees wear through.

At least that's what my mom told me as a kid when I wanted the highly trendy Dolphin shorts in the 70's.

Dolphin shorts? They sound spectacular Fat Sparrow!

I went looking for a pic and found this. I remember them as being from 1979 but it seems not, it was 1980. The old grey matter ain't what it used to be.

I had a red pair, they were one of my most prized possessions.
