Hot Pants and Platform Boots

Over at JFF the new year kicks off with looking back in time to the 60's / 70,s. Oh the 70,s in my teens and very fashionable in my purple hot pants and very high platform boots (of course I had the figure to match, I wouldn't risk my derriere in hot pants theses days LOL and as for those high platforms well!)
 I painted a beer mat with sparkle turquoise paint and then stamped purple rings and pink and lime green dots (the colours didn't photograph as well). The image( from lost coast ) I thought it represents the 60/70,s women's quest for more freedom in our everyday lives which was big in those times. As a teen this saying was my favourite, I thought it was very naughty hence using it. Nice one JFF DT, thanks for the memories.   XXX Hugs All Thanks for looking.
