Megan has had a long love affair with music. In fact, her
fashion decisions were greatly influenced by the music shes listened to
over the years. When she was just a tot, she took piano lessons and wrote many
original compositions, some of which were played live with her all-girl rock band
Blue Lipstick. The punk look involved a belted sweatshirt for a dress and yes,
the blue lipstick. It was during this time that she caught a glimpse of the Bee
Gees at the local Fairgrounds before their show, and temporarily fell in love
with disco and Barry Gibb. A brief fling with roller skates and a red satin jumpsuit
followed. Megan would skate backwards in a state of head-bobbing euphoria when
the DJ at the skating rink played Diana Ross' "Upside Down." It was
then that young Megan began to understand the power of music.
music from that time include Fleetwood Mac, ABBA, and the soundtrack to "Grease,"
a glorious double LP Megan received on her fifth birthday. You can just imagine
the flowing Stevie Nicks garb and Megan's reproduction of Olivia Newton-John's
"Youre the One That I Want" outfit at the end of the movie!
her teen years Megan sampled the easy beauty of Bob Marleys music, and experimented
in "alternative" types, like The Pixies and Rage Against the Machine.
But it didnt last. Her musical heart and her fashion soul were crying out
for something different. And then there was Nirvana. All regrettable plaid flannel
and Doc Martens aside, Nirvanas music played a memorable role in Megans
Hip hop enticed Megans senses in college, with many
memories both clear and foggy including the music of De la Soul, Souls of Mischief
and A Tribe Called Quest. When they came to her college for a live performance,
it was Megan who pushed through that tight crowd to get a good look at Q-Tip.
Fashions varied during that time, depending on laundry day.
Right now Megans
taste in music is open to any artist with a beautiful melody and lyrics that dont
annoy her. Genres dont matter. Megans taste in clothes continues to
evolve as well, although she does wear jeans a lot. Cute shoes are a must!
Notes: Megan Ward is a nice Pennsylvania girl with the tragic fear of being
landlocked. Unfettered on the Vineyard, Megan enjoys running through the woods
and on the beaches with her two "plump mutts" Ivy and Emma. Actually,
its more like walking. Although Megan has grown to love the fresh seafood
here, she still hasn't come to terms with the way New Englanders prepare and serve
