NO white between Labor Day and Easter Sunday, girls must wear "co-ordinated pants suits" if they wear pants to school, dresses must be no more than 2 fingers above the knee cap, shirts must be tucked in, belts must be worn with pants and those tucked in shirts. Closed toe shoes with hosiery must be worn in the workplace. These are the rules that take up space in my brain.
One of the few times all 3 of mine had decent shoes at the same time.
We probably went to church that month.
For years, we didn't attend church regularly because I had 3 growing kids and any one of them at all times didn't have a decent (Sunday School decent) pair of shoes that fit. That fashion rule was enough to make me think we couldn't go. Ridiculous....but embedded in my brain.
SUNDAY SCHOOL CLOTHES was a category in itself in my mind.
Elephant pants almost killed me...I tripped on the huge cuffs more times than I can remember!
Leggings with big shirts, hot pants with tiny shirts, hip huggers with 2 inch zippers, elephant pants, huge eyeglasses that covered half of the face, pointy toed shoes, squared off shoes, clogs, high top tennis shoes, flip-flops, spiked heels, layered clothing, Dorothy Hamill haircuts, Meg Ryan perms........we've all been victims.
Mom jeans. Bug eyes. Bowl haircut. I was hot.
I remember LOVING these glasses because they were so cool.
I was so cool...in those glasses...ha.
What was the eye industry thinking?
That the pores on my cheeks needed corrective lenses?
Here's what I think now....as long as your underwear isn't hanging out, wear it.
Wear it big, wear it little, wear it white, wear it in color, flip-flop in it, spike your heels in it, wear it up to your chest, wear it down as low as you possible can.
Just don't let your underwear hang out.
Chuck grillin' in some white short shorts with his lavendar shirt tucked in.
Hello 1986....you rocked.
Show those legs, Chuck!
So yes...wear white after Labor Day. And wear your shorts short. And tuck that shirt in! If the cops can't keep the druggies off the street corners,
you certainly won't be arrested for breaking any fashion rules.
And go to church. Jesus wore a gown with sandals.
