The Slits in 1979. 

“Tessa is wearing opaque black leggings — most British girls wear these because of the weather. Tessa’s pink pumps and Ari’s red pumps are very cheap Chinese shoes from Chinatown in New York. Their shoes are very worn — we wore everything until it fell off us. We were poor and there wasn’t the culture then of looking groomed and expensive; that look was abhorrent to us. Ari has scars and cuts on her legs, she was 15 years old, still climbing walls and running around all over the place. My legs look rather mottled — it was probably cold, they always went like that when I was freezing. I’m wearing All Star trainers.” (x)
