I have ALWAYS been addicted to magazines... any kind of magazine...since I can remember. Back in the 90's when I was in high-school, my friend Jess and I would hang out in my room looking at magazines for hours. I would cut "cool" images out of these magazines and plaster them all over my notebooks. Typical. I know.
I still have some notebooks from this fabulous time in my life and on the back of one of these notebooks was an article titled The Lady and The Scamp. I have no idea who wrote it, as I failed to write that part down. I guess it wasn't all that important to me at the time. I copied it down in pencil on the back of this one notebook and after all the ware and tear over the years, I can just barely read it.
It is quite fabulous:
They lurk there within the soul of every woman. The lady and the scamp. Their duality is absolutely essential. It doesn't take money or a title to be a lady. Rather, the lady is a woman who possess refined taste and manners ~ not to mention an exceedingly good wardrobe. Think Alfre Woodard, Jackie Kennedy, and Audrey Hepburn. The scamp on the other hand, is a woman with an independent manner and a taste for mischief ~ not to mention a closet packed with trendier wear. Think Wynona Ryder, Tina Turner, or Pamela Anderson. The scamp runs the risk of being considered something that starts with a "T" and rhymes with "scamp". Let the two out to play and you'll keep everyone guessing for years to come.
I still love the article and now I can relate it to decor. If our clothing tells a story about us, then our bedrooms really do too.
Can you tell if a "lady" is inhabiting these bedrooms or a "lady" who has harnessed her inner "scamp"?? Nothing wrong with either, after all, both the lady and the scamp live within us all.
What's your guess?
A stylish "lady" ??
~ or ~ a woman who has harnessed her inner "scamp":
This should be interesting ;)
