Suzy awakens...

This is exactly what I look like when I awake. (Awkard looking head-neck placement, though. Some discussion on myvintagevogue of what-in-the-world? I think it's the cut of the nightdress back bodice.) (you can see the whole ad text by going to the supersize advert here.)

Looks like her head is on backwards. Strange.

My mum had that amazing lip stuff in the 70s. It really worked. I wonder why they had to reinvent it in the 2000s. I think it was Ponds so she had to stock up whenever friends visited.

It is goofy about the head.

I know about the 'reinvention.' Someone was pontificating on a site the other day about it...I asked her if she had ever used Benetint lip stain or Pinch My Cheeks (or whatever that was...it was great, don't know if still around)...she said 'yes.' I said: that's what this was apparently. (When you look at the close print in supersize ad on myvintagevogue).

You mean it was only in UK or US? Not Canada? That's weird. Anyway, I think it's funny & my mother was a big fan of Suzy's (part of reason for my name)...so it's my lil joke. :)

I get depressed when I don't wake up wearing a thick layer of orange lipstick too. The crick in the neck is sooo worth it.

lol...would be rolf or rofl whatever...if i could....

woke up this a.m. without orange lipstick on & I'm depressed. But it might be from something(s) else...
