Mocha With Linda has started her very own meme. This is how she describes it:
This new meme’s purpose is to have us take a look back and share about a specific time or event in our lives. It will be fun to see how similar – or different – our experiences have been!.
I am enjoying this meme a lot. Grab the button and the link and come play along. Linda’s theme this week is:
The flashback this week surrounds our fashion memories. You may elaborate on your childhood Easter fashions and/or share about styles in general. What fashions were popular when you were growing up? (Any time from birth to high school graduation) What did you beg to wear? What style did you happily embrace that you now look back and think, “Ugh! Whatever possessed me to wear that? ( Of course, pictures would be great – the more hideous embarrassing, the better!) Have any of these come back into style? What have you worn that you vowed you never would? (You can also include hairstyles in your walk down Memorial Fashions Lane!)
I am late this week because we were without electricity for a good portion of Friday. The photo is so hysterical I know you’ll find it worth waiting for and forgive me for being tardy. Here is me in one of my favorite outfits from the mid-70’s. I was stylin’! [shudder]
See the huge glasses, the giant hoop earrings and the dangles on my shirt? I can’t see the pants but I imagine they were bell-bottoms. They weren’t jeans, my parents didn’t allow me to wear them. This must have just after my Farrah Fawcett hairstyle phase. And I will bet you that I had navy blue suede waffle stompers on my feet. I loved those shoes!
