I probably wasn’t a REAL hippy, but I lived with the culture…you know, braless, halter tops, micro skirts, the works.
Are you old enough to remember Twiggy? There were bell bottom pants, funky head bands, beads of all sort, and flowers everywhere.
In the seventies I used to disco. I wore metallic pants. Swear to God I did. Mine weren’t this cheesy silver though. They were red, garish red. I also had a Danskin skirt in every conceivable color and wore platform shoes that made me tower…and teeter…above my male counterparts.
But after that…I’m really not sure what the trend was…or IS for that matter. Yes, our clothing tastes of yesteryear were weird, but at least I understood them. Now I seem to be in a fashion abyss. And as the RWA conference draws near, I have no idea what to wear. Do I go for a business look? A casual look? A fun look? I’m lost.
I have some halter tops from the 70’s that I still like. Maybe I should drag one of those out. Or perhaps I still have a jump suit left from the 80s. Everything used to be copasetic when I was dressed from head to toe in my seaweed green jumpsuit.
So how about you? What was your favorite or least favorite fashion? Do you faithfully change with the times or do you cling to the familiar? And what…please tell me…do you wear to a fashion-conscious, all female conference?
