Remember those dot matrix printers offices had back in the 1980s and early 1990s? My parents owned a small business and they would often take my brother and me to work instead of finding a babysitter. We would make the most idiotic banners using Print Shop (a software that had a really huge selection of clip art and fonts by the standards of that time) and hang them all over the place. I'm pretty amazed my Mom never chewed us out for wasting ink and paper (then again, she probably figured it kept us from running all over the place and laying waste to the supply cabinet).
The polka dots on this vintage dress randomly reminded me of the fun times we had abusing our parents' office equipment.
I'm also wearing a lovely celluloid pin I purchased from my vintage jewelry pusher, er, dealer in Shida night market (師大夜市), as well as an equally cool headband from a Korean vendor who brings back accessories from his home country.
He told me that these leafy bands are all the rage among Korean pop stars and actresses! Speaking of which, do any of you watch Korean or Taiwanese soap operas? I used to turn my nose up at them for being too campy whenever my parents rented videos... until I realized that was the whole point! I'd like to start watching them again, so any suggestions would be appreciated.
