Day 1645: A sort of magic in not knowing you can't.

Variation3, classic print, collage & digital

I came across this picture yesterday 
for Throwback Thursday, me at 19.


I had been selected as member of Mademoiselle's College Board.
Mademoiselle was a fashion magazine published 
from 1935 through 2001. 
 I entered in my freshman year and was accepted.

I thought about this for quite a while today, 
trying to conceive my mind set at that time
and the bravery to even apply.
As I got older I began to realize odds & limitations etc.
But, there is a sort of magic in not knowing that you can't.

. . .

But, because I was selected ... 
during the summer before my Sophomore year 
Mademoiselle Magazine sent me to Bullock's Wiltshire 

where I was outfitted with my official college board uniform. 
The striped v-neck sweater & a skirt that I thought was divine.
Then to the George Masters for a hair styling. 

He was famous & even looked like a movie star.
He asked what I wanted & seemed pleased that I left it to him.
Next they took the photo (below) & then I was official.

. . .

Neither Diane or I were selected for a guest editorship.
But I was hired by Ball Stores and Seventeen Magazine,


which provided great college jobs & experience.

. . .

What about you? Were you braver earlier than now?
Just wondering?
