Fashion Flashback

Since my girl is starting the 8th grade next week,
I thought I'd show some pix of my first day of school.
Of course, we dressed up for that first day!
I loved that dress!
 That's my brother and sis waiting with me for the bus.
Below is a school pic that shows a close up of the dress.

Bye for now!

The Calm Before the Storm

Oh, my we had some beautiful storm clouds the other night!
And the best part was that there was no damage!

Just some amazing clouds!

Bye for now!

Round and Round

I have a new pin design in my shop,
a lovely carousel!
Or merry-go-round if you prefer.
I think it was Curtise that gave my the idea, thanks!
You can find it in my shop!

Bye for now!

What We Wore

 It was a warm and very muggy day,
so put on my JC Penney dress again 
and added pink and yellow beads, 
navy straw purse and navy sandals.
Unfortunately, I won't be wearing those sandals again 
as the bottom strap broke. Oh well!

I love this tee my girl got at Hot Topic,
"We are all mad here!" 
with the cheshire cat.
Fits this family pretty well! 
Linking to Visible Monday!
Bye for now!

Flashback Friday

 I've been seeing a lot of late 70's 
and early 80s dresses on some of my fav blogs
(Curtise and Vix),
so I had to see if I could find my old pix
of some of the great dresses I had back in the day.
Above is a dress I wore in 1981,
and was always one of my favorites!
It was  perfect color and so flattering on me.
I wish I still had it!
 Next is a cute dress I had for my class "skip" trip,
my senior year, 1979.
Wish I wasn't slouching in the photo!

Finally is a shot of me on my way to sophmore year in college, 
with my cousin.
I know this isn't a dress, but I always loved that jacket,
and if I could find jeans like that now,
I would definitely wear them!
I do think high waist jeans are making a comeback,
let's hope so!
Bye for now!

Weather House Garden Pin

I think the theme of my latest pin/brooch 
is probably flower gardens.
Floral fabric and flower motifs abound!
You can find it in my shop right now!

Hope you will visit my shop sometime!
Bye for now!
