About Me

Zootsuitmama was my shopname, but I closed it a while back. Now I have entered a magic timemachine and live in a time warp of vintage and retro ... Join me.

Time to take the shades off and face the crowd!


Here I am. Zootsuit mama. I hate pictures of me, but oh well. 55 and counting! I still feel like I should be 35 or 25, but since I have kids aged 38 in August, 36 in June and 20 last Sunday June 13th-I guess it's time to face reality....Keep in mind that this was 6pm, after working all day . AND, I cannot see how kids take their own darn picture with those camera phones, but I look like a convict. Soooo.... I will vow to start showing the real me, in vintage clothes and say "Whatever" I am what I am. Could be better, could be worse, but glad to be alive and 55 (56 on June 25th!) I wouldn't go back, and every day gets better. So -tell me?

If I have only one life, should I live it as a blonde? Only my hairdressers know for sure if blondes have more fun. Of course, I had fun with grey, black, red ....whatever the haircolor!



INside-I am still that crazy smiling girl at the Thanksgiving table, in 1966! Pre-Beatles, pre-mod, British invasion me.

So funny...I can't take my own photo either. I am still hiding behind my camera in some of my photos. Hey 55 and counting! It just keeps rolling on....

you look fabulous!

Do you have a self timer on your camera? If so that may make it easier but I assume that you do not or I am sure you probably would have tried that.
Can't wait to see your vintage clothes and I am glad you came out of blogger hiding. hehaha

Convict hahaha. Well, if you want to take self-portraits like the kids do, you have to make those awful fish lips faces they all seem to take. What's up with that?

Always wonderful to put a face or voice to a personality! And blonds do have more fun. ;)

LOL! You look Fabbbbbuulooous! Those kids take about a million pictures to get 2 or 3 they like! My niece is a master at arm's length photography, fish lips and all! Happy Early Birthday to you!!! My birthday is the 24 of June...we are both Cancers, the most kindest sweetest lovable people of zodiac. *wink *wink! Have a great B day!

Kick some buns, zoot suit! I love your picture. And you don't look a day over 40! Your youthful zest keeps you looking young on the outside. I can't wait to see how you put together your vintage schtick, either.

P.S. There are SO many blondes already in the world. I say do a 2 tone, dark brown with grey bangs or something. But that's just me. ;)

Thanks Darlene! I definitely think attitude is everything (well almost, it's not gonna reverse gravity)-after working with 80-100 year olds all day, I really feel young! ZSM

There's no way you look 55! You look fantastic! But I have the same thing...I always tend to hide in photos, and I just can't get the hang of taking spicture of myself with my phone or even camera...
