“It was the first or second year when beauty contests were held. I took part in it and almost made it to the finals. I was one of the oldest contestants and the only one which had two kids already. I submitted to the contest in this very dress.
My outfit here is a polish sweater. That was the time when people began to make trips to Poland. My friend brought it. I bought it from her and wore it like a dress. My stockings are also brought from Poland. Every girl then wanted stockings like these”.
