Get Back, Jo-Jo!
Throwback Thursday: The J-Pets

Play the Way You Feel It

Back when I graduated from high school, THIS song was playing on everyone's cassette player . . .

 

And that Stevie Nicks! 

I wanted to BE her.

(All the guys wanted to be WITH her.)

She was so . . .

Slinky.

Sexy.

Drapey.

Ethereal.

But, mostly, back in 1977, Stevie Nicks was . . . Different!

Her style was different.  Her voice was different.  Her clothes were different.  Her look was different. 

I wanted to imitate.

But I really couldn't.  Because . . . where did Stevie Nicks even SHOP?

(Not at the stores I visited, I can tell you that!)

But, over the years, every once in a while, I would find something . . . some article of clothing . . .

Something drapey.

Something with fringe.

Usually black.

Long and slinky.

And I would buy it.  And I would think to myself, "Stevie Nicks would SO wear this!"

Which is why, 36 years later, I decided to knit this.

You wear it way better than Stevie ever could! Love it!

Fringe was my thing (way back in the 60s & 70s)! What a great looking way to wear fringe today!

You and your Slink look simply stunning! According to Wikipedia, Stevie is 65 (how can this be?) and still looks great; I think I want to be her now, perhaps with a Slink of my own!

Marilyn

That is very cool and you have just the right amount of slink! (Love the dress too!)

Patty

Quite nice...now I want to hear you sing! ;-)

Mary

oh yeah, you are definitely channeling Stevie, but making it your own. the fringe and the hempathy work great together. (and I'm thinking new puppy, new FO, no way I can compete :-)

Chloe

Yup. That is so-o Stevie.

Stevie Nicks would also wear your dress. Stunning!

Did you ever see Lucy Lawless (Xena) do her impression of Stevie Nicks on SNL? Hilarious!

Vicki
