Today's Retro Tuesday is all about outfits...Outfits I thank the lord my mother never ordered!
These pictures still come from my ONLY vintage magazine; Family Circle 1962. If ever you have some magazines (vintage of course) that you would want to donate for my cause...Please write! I would appreciate this so much!
The mother-daughter outfits! Can you say tacky? I admit this calico dress is not that bad, but I find it definitely better suited for the kid!
My mom was the queen of thrift and would make me dresses in my dad's old sweaters and then she would take white tights and die them to match....I was the only 4 year old with khaki or bown outfits!
I've had this one on my mind a lot...I imagined myself doing errands with this on! And it was hilarious!
Jumpsuits and in this case the jump-in suit don't fit everybody. And certainly not me!
I'm top heavy and these look ridiculous on me! I remember as a late teen wanting one of those garage jumpsuits-they were the big fashion craze in the 80's. My mom finally caved in and bought me one, well HER version of one..the crotch was so high I could berely sit in it! And the rear was so big I could've carpooIed with it! I wore it twice....
Too bad they don't show the alternate color combo...tan with coral and toast trim. YUMMO!
I wonder what toast looks like...
