before I drop off my perch

Can I ask you never to allow me to become an “unexpected and out-of-the-box fashion icon from the past”?

I don’t think I could bear it. There are floral pocket jeans that would haunt my fashion ghosts long after my death. But I digress.

Obviously, because of my extensive months of trawling the www’s for Sylvia ephemera I am tragically aware of Sylvia as a woman who “not only made an impact”, but had a “distinct signature style that we can still draw inspiration from today. This won’t be something Thomas and I will be discussion on Thursday/Friday as a part of the Un-required Reading event for the Brisbane Fringe Festival. Come and Turnstyle it in whatever fashion inspiration you so chose. Clothing is your choice. Flesh is obviously optional.


There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won’t cure, but I don’t know many of them.
