Sincerely Fro Me To You

 

What were we thinking?  The really sad thing is, my cousin Michele ( in mustard) and myself (in green) thought we looked too cute.  We had our cute hats on from the Limited.  Don't you just love my jumper and ruffled collar shirt.  I know there was a pair of black riding boots under that ankle length mess.   Michele probably had on some sort of stirrup pants and ankle boots with her ensemble.  The funny thing is the girl in the middle ( Paula )  is one of my best friends.  She was at the time a Cosmo covergirl.  She had come home for a visit and we were giving her a birthday party.  She is in a simple white tee and jeans.  As I look back it is so embarrassing what I wore to try to look good. An ill fitting jumper with boots and blouse were certainly not flattering.  They were on the other hand modest.  I am shocked that guys actually asked me out.  Paula was simple and beautiful.  She didn't try hard at all. That should be a lesson to us all, less is more.!!

Was you jumper a dress or a bubble suit? Do you remember the jumpers that had the big poofy legs on them? Sailor collar usually, bright of floral fabric.

I wore them.

And for that, I am ashamed.

What a beauties! Those 80s clothes crack me up! My kids are always like "Why?" when they see old photos. I have no answer!

I just have to know was Paula sitting down, because otherwise she is really short. That also looks like M.E. in about 10 years. :)

So great! I've tried to teach my daughter the "less is more" standard. It obviously didn't take because my car and home are covered in glitter!
