All that Jazz!

with 2 comments

I owe this look to Miss Trudie, my jazz and tap instructor from age 5 to age 9. As an impressionable girl and aspiring dancer, I idolized Miss Trudie. She smoked cloves and smelled like patchouli, had a penchant for gaudy costume jewelry and granny glasses, tiny mysterious asian symbols tattooed just below the underside of her wrists, and she would occasionally bring in her crazy siamese cat, Leopold, to entertain us. She was beautiful and graceful, eccentric and worldly and so full of life…

Here’s to you Miss Trudie.
