You’re either the little one or the one dressed for a funeral

“It would not be long before my music career took off. Helped by the advent of MTV a few short years later, we would have a Number 1 hit, “Do You Really Want To Hurt Me,” and this look would be my hallmark.”

Oh, I was definitely part of that whole scene, too.

Wearing black to a wedding? Ouch. 😬

They did have a reasonably happy marriage, and had been together for about ten years at this point,

You look like the mysterious rich auntie who never got married and travels and is just generally fabulous and never stays in town long enough to get bored

Fade to gray , way before it was a thing

Correct, Punk had ended, and the next youth cult was in a state of becoming.

Black to a wedding? Well I guess that’s one delicate way to say „F*ck you!“ to the married couple…


Poullafouca OP t1_iw53kei wrote

Not at all, it was just the look I was married to. When my older sister got married two years before this, I had to dye my punk pink hair brown and wear a really normal dress to the reception. During that afternoon all my aunts told me I looked weird dressed as a normal person, so by the time my mother's wedding rolled round, I just did my thing.

I think they thought I looked daft more than anything.

Well if it wasn’t „a thing“ like in a lot of families, it’s okay I guess. 😄

The woman to your right is owning her look too. I covet that white button up

I can relate. Acquired a new stepfam in 1977. Hope yours was not a disaster, but at least you started in style!

I can't believe we actually chose to wear our hair like that once upon a time. God help us.
