High School Polly

This is me in high school circa 2003 when I was year twelve. It could have been the 70's for the way I dressed. 

I saved up to buy a coat very similar to that below and I loved my band shirts especially Led Zeppelin. My favourite shoes were my purple Docs that I bought with my birthday money when I was 14. Unfortunately they are no longer with us but mum bought me some maroon ones for something like $20 at an Op Shop. I loved flares and my bags were all across the body.

I loved wearing lipstick (which I now hate) and wore tinted moisturiser instead of foundation. I loved eyeshadow but never left the house without mascara. I love crosses even though I'm not religious so always wore a cross. I also loved big hoop earrings especially if my wrist could fit through them. I always drank coke, either a bottle from the canteen or a can from the vending machine. 

My fashion really hasn't changed that much from then. Today I sit here in jeans, a Doors shirt, flat black shoes and a blue flanno. Still the same Ames.

Wanna play along? It's fun, a little bit mean (limitless, free credit card anyone?), perfect procrastination and if you are anything like me you won't be able to stop at just one!

Check out other Polly Dollies at Danimezza. While you're there check out Danimezza's other posts. She is one happening woman!


  1. Very cool Ames... i always wanted a pair of Docs but could never afford them!

  2. Love the retro feel - the coat kinda scares me though LOL ;)

  3. The coat is a little scary ;) I love your t-shirt though!!

  4. Haha my coat isn't leather thank goodness. It is warm though!

  5. I love it all - i'm not sure about that coat though... it better be fake fur! I had fake DOCs at school but bought my first pair with my first pay check.


Just like everyone else I LOVE comments and they make me SMILE. I'll reply as soon as I can, but please know that I appreciate and read EVERY single comment. Thanks xxx
