    Why, thank you, deadpandiva! I live in California now, which is a delight, because people seem to be a lot more tolerant of differences. But I lived in Kansas before that and it was much more difficult to be regarded as anything short of strange. It was entertaining though, hehe.

    New Orleans Hat Ordinance.
    Apparently they were so stylish free women of color were not allowed to wear hats. (1986) Around the 2 minute mark.

    :eusa_clap :eusa_clap :eusa_clap If these boys were alive today at this age, they probably would be wearing their pants down to the ground. This is what I call style, even though the boy on the left probably would have been considered under-dressed by the elders with his dungarees.

    I totally agree. I had my natural hair pink for a while but was unsure that my new job would approve. I bought a nice wig online. People thought I was bonkers when I finally went to a natural color again and I told them I had been wearing a wig for 2 months (my wig was chin length dark blonde and one day I showed up with elbow length red hair).

    Yet at my other job, a lot of african american women worked there and would asked if I was wearing a wig if I styled my hair different.
