Stylish

Stephen and I have been Stylin’ since we were babies.  I grew up as a Girly Girl. A real Clotheshorse especially when I was younger. I had more shoes in my closet than Imelda Marcos and after I moved into my own apartment the clothes bar in my closet broke under the weight of all my outfits!  LOL!! My Dad used to joke that I had to get dressed just to put out the garbage. I think that I took after my Aunt Thelma who had those same attributes and passed them along to me!!  LOL!!

I was never much on make-up (except lip stick otherwise I look like a blank slate), fake eyelashes or fake nails but since my job requires me to be on my feet for long hours bi-monthly pedicures are a must. I do get manicures but neat, short, clean with clear polish because I still must cook, clean the house and do dishes.  Of course hair care is a must!! As you can see from my photos I’ve had every hair style know to Black People from the 60s up to and including the present. Now I color my hair. I loathe gray hair. I do not look good in gray hair and let’s not advance my age more than it is already. Getting older should not include looking like a frump or a bag lady.  Yes, Vanity Thy Name is Woman!! LOL!!

My Mom Mable Elizabeth Palmer who was born in the small town of Davy, WV and raised in Dayton, Ohio also Loved to dress well. Her beauty and style are what captured the heart of my Dad Edward G. Palmer.

My Paternal Aunts Thelma Palmer Varner and Helen Palmer Garcia.

  1. Totally stylin’! Love the photos…you and everyone in your family has fantastic taste – and Stephen rocks the fedora well!

    LOL – we must be distant cousins…my shoe collection isn’t bad, and I also had a couple of closet clothes-rods break under the weight of all of my clothes – I love nice clothes, especially vintage styles.

    “Mother Dear,” my maternal grandmother, was a cosmetologist who ran a beauty school for a number of years…I need to have my sisters scan and email some of those photos so that they can be saved and uploaded for me to share.

    Awesome post!

    1. Thank you so very much!! Yes we are probably related! Twin Afro Twiggies! 😀 Now a days my shoe collection is not as vast mostly composed of work shoes not so much the dressy shoes since I have bad feet and ankles but I do have a few nice pairs of dress shoes for church or some special occasion. More practical than pretty!! LOL!!

      I’ve written two other blog posts about shoes that might interest you. Please take a look and let me know what you think. Picture the talking wigs from the play The Colored Museum and this is some of the flavor of my prose/poems.
