The Biggest Compliment
August 23, 2012 § Leave a comment
Last weekend the guitarist in my boyfriend’s band said I dress like Pretty Betty. As in, Ugly Betty but not ugly – which is very charitable for him. Isn’t that the nicest thing? It compares only to an ex colleague saying ‘You look like a character in a Tim Burton movie…in a good way’. I’d completely forgotten Sav’s charmingly guileless comment (as we were at various stages of destroyed) but it’s just come back to me and I think I might cry.
I wouldn’t want to dress EXACTLY like her but the stylist on that set knows what they’re doing. Volume, print, layering, scale: all great things to play with and I’m honoured to be so compared. Hooray for dressing like you just fell into a box full of second hand fancy dress!
