Tomboy Inspiration: Françoise Hardy

"...all the other girls, little girls, were dressed differently than I was — their parents had more money...I didn't enjoy at all everything, the trappings, when all of a sudden you become very famous... [on being taken up by the fashion houses] it was work, things I had to do, a chore - I didn't enjoy it at all...It is quite impossible to stand — to be admired too much — it is not a normal situation...I don't like that at all...I am not comfortable with my professional life really, so the word 'icon'- it's as though you were talking about someone else, it's not me really...I feel happy when I'm on my bed, in my room with a good book." 
- Françoise Hardy

    1. Hey Milsters, thanks so much for dropping by! HM. Why am I stranded in Borneo, indeed. Such a legit question hahaha, but I was born in Borneo! I moved overseas for about a decade when I was a kid, and now I'm back on the island again, sweltering under the brutal Equatorial sun.

      Just goes to show, you can run from the island, but you probably can't avoid living on the island forever.
