Dorraine’s blog triggered this post. Thank you, Dorraine, for memories.
In 1970, I went to California for the first time aspiring to be a hippie! I went to May Company and bought the snake-skin-designed outfit in the photo. I wore it only a few times. After this photo, I made a trip to San Francisco with our twenty or so international club members. But I didn’t see any hippies during the trip. I was very disappointed.
Afterward, I wore only the bellbottom pants to my campus. I adored my purple and yellow woven shoulder bag from India and collected leather belts and barrettes with peace-sign designs.
I wish I could post my other photo with the same outfit. On that photo, my chin was up, my elbow was out forward, and I had a big grin on my face. My boyfriend then stole it. I asked him to return it, but he never did.
