MEme Monday


I'm joining Supahmommy and Mommybrain in the ALL ABOUT Meme Monday. This Monday we're talking about -
FIve Fashion MEmestakes (mistakes)
I hope to never. make. again.
I have the song Lets get physical in brain thanks to these 2 mommies! 
1. Members only jackets. I didn't have one but my boyfriend then husband did and he was so cool to me. His was silvery gray. I look back at it now and it was SO NOT COOL.
2. Jeans...TIGHT jeans folded at the bottom and then rolled so they would stay tight. This was a ridiculous look that my brother wore too far into the 90's. (hoping he doesn't read my blog)  Normally I would have on my high top LA Gear tennis shoes with the 2 velcro straps at the top while wearing the tight rolled jeans back in the day.
3. Ponytails on the side..and high ones at that. *enuff said* 
4. stirrup pants- Why? My daughter called me last week cause she was at the mall and came across a pair of stirrup pants...in 2009! She called cause she found it funny. Not only did I dress like that I dressed my kids like that too. *hangs head in shame*

5. Leg-warmers. Remember those? You usually wore them with the stirrup pants.
...and that's why I keep singing Lets get physical!

So get typing and go see all the fashion boohoos with Mr. Linky at Supahs!


This new editor has confused me...forgive the mess.
....or not.

stirrup pants and legwarmers were staples of my 80's wardrobe!

I love that you "fashion-outed" your husband, brother, and kids ... all in this one post :) No sense going down in flames by yourself ... misery loves company, and all that :)

And thanks for the stirrup pant reminder - guilty as charged!

So glad you're playing along with me and Supah ... and I am glad to know someone from Ar-Kansas ;)

I loved stirrup pants.
They were always itchy. lol! I wore mine with BIG COLORFUL COSBY SWEATERS. I so wanted to be Vanessa Huxtable. I"m pretty sure MommyBrain has an authentic Huxtable sweater posted on her blog this week.

I so looked hot in my stirrups! I had the LA Gear tennies too. Mine were white and pink. I was so sexy

I was not brave enough to admit to the stirrups, but I wore them. And the LA Gear shoes. Loved those.

This Monday's All About MEme: FIVE "breathtaking" white LIES YOU'VE TOLD.


( Ode to Seinfeld)
Ben: What did you say?
Elaine: I said, uh, some snuggly baby.
Ben: He is something.
Elaine: Well, to tell you the truth, Dr. Feffa, I , I was surprised to hear you use a word like breathtaking to describe a baby, I mean, because you also used it referring to me.

Ben: Well, you know Elaine, sometimes you say things just to be nice.

(Elaine relieved, then confused, not knowing if he was being nice to her or to the baby)
