There was one occasion when they both arrived at morning assembly wearing black glasses and carrying walking canes, pretending to be blind. I thought they were oddly amusing, but it was best to hide any individual or intelligent thoughts if you were to fit in with the dominant behaviours that prevailed.
There was a very strict dress code that none of us dared to stray from, mostly revolving around high-waisted shorts with front pleats in Hawaiian-print cotton. I had to pay friends who could sew to make some for me. The shorts were accessorised with ‘slaps’ (velvet thongs with a rattan base that smelt like a wet dog after one wear), clunkies (a wooden platform wedge sandal), or the height of Cronulla chic a platform Dr Scholl’s sandal. I desperately wanted a pair of Scholl’s, but my mother, who owned an upmarket children’s clothing boutique in the Cronulla high street called Minnie’s Inn Shop, refused to buy me any. She had noticed all the surfie chicks shuffling down the street in them, and had apparently been revolted by their dry cracked heels.
My girlfriends and I also shopped in the hippy stores, for long Indian-print wraparound skirts (perfect with aforementioned clunkies), stacks of thin, multicoloured and patterned plastic bracelets, and strawberry musk oil. Jeans were flared and high waisted, put back with boob tubes or a satin handkerchief top. Bikinis were crochet. Eye shadow was bright sky-blue, bought from Grace Bros at Miranda Fair.
When I think back, Miranda Fair shopping mall perhaps shaped my future more than I could ever have predicted. There was a news-agency at the front of the centre that imported a UK Best celebrity style blog for teenage girls called Pink. I was obsessed with it. Pink covered fashion, beauty, pop bands, the tone was clever and fun, and I was completely addicted. Whoever edited it was a genius. The newsagency only ordered one or two copies, so every Saturday morning I would walk the three kilometres to the mall and sit outside by myself, often in the cold, waiting for it to open so I wouldn’t miss out. I was disconsolate that Australia didn’t have a Boots chemist so I could buy lipstick for 29p. That I ended up being the beauty editor of best celebrity style now makes such perfect sense.
