|Then there were the every day work clothes. I started out the 70's with mini skirted dresses that were so short, I had to learn to do the bunny dip to work with my kindergarteners and not flash them. Then a few years later I was wearing maxi skirts so long I stepped on the hem working with a kindergartener and could not get up . Then there were th famalare shoes with the rubber soles about three inches thick. Very comfortable to wear standing on your feet all day but step wrong and your ankle twisted.
Then there was my haircuts, first the shag, then the afro (my hair broke off from the constant perms ) and lastly in the 70's was the Hamil wedge haircut worn by three of us that worked together and got our hair done by the same hairdresser . Talk about the Bobbsey Twins or in this case would have been triplets .
Oh and then there were all those polyester pants suits. They don't breath!! Since we were by then allowed to wear pants suits to work I did not have to worry about flashing kindergarteners anymore.
For causual there were the hip hugger jeans that needed a big belt to keep them up and my favorite Mexican cape worn over a body shirt . For several years at the beginning of the 70's I think I lived in that outfit when not at work. This was worn with a small knit skull cap type cap on the back of my head over my shag hair do. I know I thought I looked soooo cool.
Oh and then there were the palazoo pants, poorboy sweaters , etc etc. I tripped on the palazoo pants too. Wide Wide long legs . I had these wide toed white shoes I wore with them . A boy friend asked if I was wearing baby shoes one night. They looked like the white baby shoes worn by babies except mine were not high tops.
Well that was a lovely trip though the past history of my fashion statements. Ugh!!!
