Let’s bare it all and chat about what to wear
First, what is your name and how old are you?
My name is Lara Harper and I’m 35.
What is the time period in which you live?
I live in present-day Australia. My younger sister, Cecily, moved to the Bahamas a few years ago because of a man she met online. I try to visit her there at least once a year. She suggested I needed an island getaway. Time away from the stresses in my life such as dealing with my ex during the divorce, the anger issues of my teenaged son, and working to support myself and my child.
Considering the role you play in society, what is expected for you to wear?
I work in advertising. While I do have an office, I also work from home. When I’m in the office, I wear business-like attire. A nice blouse, skirt and heels. At home, I’m more casual, but I enjoy light, soft fabrics. I often wear sundresses in the summer.
Mending and laundry are chores for anyone. Do you do it or someone else?
My ex-husband was far too busy to do any household chores while we were married. I took care of all of that. After the divorce, my life didn’t change much with chores, but I have a growing business to manage, as well. My teenaged son is starting to help more for which I’m grateful, but I still feel overwhelmed with all the responsibilities life throws at me.
What kind of shoes or boots do you wear?
High heels are my go-to footwear for basically anywhere. Except when I visit the beach. I have a pair of cute sandals that I love to wear when I’m visiting my sister.
When others see you what is their first impression?
Despite my aggressive attitude with my job, I’m a rather shy, reserved type. While the clothes I wear may look expensive, I’m frugal when it comes to shopping. I’m a single mom with a growing son, after all. Still, at first glance, others tend to think of me as wealthy. And because I’d rather read a book than have a conversation with a stranger, they think I’m snobbish, too.
What do you wear to sleep?
I have several soft nighties with beautiful designs. Pretty fabric grabs my attention. Other times, I wear a pair of short shorts and a tank top. Comfort at night is important to help me fall asleep after a stressful day.
What do you wish you didn’t have to wear?
Well, I chose to wear heels on the flight to the island where my sister lives. I mean, I love wearing heels, but I intended to land at an airport not crash on a desert island. I was supposed to be taking a taxi to a 5-star hotel. I should have rummaged through my luggage to find my sandals that first day, but when you’re arguing with a sexy as sin pilot about trying to find a way home, you just don’t think of those things.
Tell us what your author wears when writing about you.
Oh, she’s the opposite of me. She likes to wear stretchy, comfy clothes all day long. If she wasn’t worried about someone stopping by unannounced, she’d probably wear pajamas all day long. Lucky for me, she has friends who check up on her. She disappears far too often into her writing cave. Someone occasionally pops in to see if she’s okay when she disappears from Facebook for a few days.
