So far I am enjoying the book.Yes I hope I can get around when it is cold.
Yup, that was my high school look for sure! My only difference was my hair was shorter as I couldn’t grow it that long.
Dee, sometimes there are women who will take wedding dresses to make Angel gowns - wear for stillborn babies . A sad topic, but when I decide to give up my dress, I’d like it to be repurposed for that…..
Or, some women make them into christening gowns for their grandchildren (if the daughters don't want to wear Mom's dress for their own weddings). Either thing is a very sweet thing to do with a wedding dress.
I have been married twice (10 years apart), and both of my dresses were off the rack, so nothing special. (I could say the same about the marriages themselves. *smirk* Should have listened to Mom and Dad! LOL)
Wow! Your daughter really looks like you.

especially LAURA ASHLEY.
I was trying to remember that name!! I had several Laura Ashley outfits..everyone did! The most annoying thing about them was you HAD to iron them before wearing...good ole cotton!
you were a hottie!!

I even wore hot pants in the 70's.
I can't believe another hot pants wearer! I was waaaay too chicken to wear them! :-)
I enjoyed your story! I got rid of all my sewing patterns years ago. There is no way I would ever see size 3 again.. We have the same humidity problem here in Illinois. That and age, pregnancies, and lack of will power.
Since I retired back in 2014, I really haven't been clothes shopping that much. Just give me jeans and t-shirt/sweatshirts and I,m content. A few days ago I took my DIL and granddaughter for our annual school clothes shopping. DIL just got hired as an aid at the elementary school so she needed something new too. We went to Kohls and I was amazed at how retro everything looked. Many of the same fabrics and styles I remember wearing "back in the day". If I still had the clothes in my closet that were there many years ago, I would be right in style! Let's just hope those tent dresses from the 70s never come back.
