Bo Derek’s Playboy™cover chamois 👙

Closet tales🚪 – Chapter 2 (or “did I ever tell you about the time Bo Derek scooped me on a swimsuit?”👙😎)

It was late February or March of 1980, and I had purchased an OUTRAGEOUS beaded and feathered chamois swimsuit from Michigan Avenue’s North Beach Leather Boutique, located in Chicago’s Water Tower Place. (Which also happened to be the “scene of the crime” for that fringe jacket purchase😎)

I KNEW I shouldn’t have spent that much on a 👙swimsuit, but I was dating a musician🎸 that had actually played at Woodstock, so it was either *that or the fringe made me do it😇. My heart was still racing from the “crime” of the purchase, as I headed back to work, stopping at a 📰news stand along the way, to pick up the just-released issue of Vogue magazine. It’s a busy stand (corner of Michigan & Chicago) so while I waited, I see the bundled stack – not even cut free yet – and it’s BO DEREK wearing the EXACT SAME suit on the freakin’ COVER of PLAYBOY??!?!😱In that instant, I knew that

1) that suit didn’t fit my then (stick <–haha!) figure, and

2) it would never see the light of day

Painful then💸 (because of what I spent and it was not returnable) but funny as HELL, these 35 years later😂😂😂. ESPECIALLY if you knew me in the day… Twiggy had more meat on her bones ::::::chortling::::::
