This morning, at the Downtown Bend Business Association meeting, I noticed that Kelli Brooks, the owner of At The Beach, was wearing an orange and white plaid mini-skirt length dress, with a white hair band and matching white go-go boots. She looked totally gear.
I met up with her afterward at Thump Coffee and told her that she looked smashing, like a page out of a 1964 issue of Life magazine.
"This actually is a vintage dress from 1964," she told me.
So this tells me two things:
- I'm old enough to know 1964 fashion when I see it, and
- I'm gay enough to be able to know exactly what year a dress came from.
