And the topic in question was fashion & clothing choices in our younger years.
of all my fashion faux pas - i remember this one particularly distinctly (& painfully!):
Baggy white shirt (in casual cotton material) tucked into a short (above knee) triple-tiered pink skirt topped with a (pale purple, i think it was) wide elastic-band belt. The type that you attach with little loops ala your bra.
I think this was somewhere in primary 6 (aged 12)
I'm comforted by the fact that jac & jul also appeared to recall &, i think even owned these elastic waisted horrors.
jac recounted recently fishing a pair of "ali-baba" style baggy-around-the-hip high waisted pants out of the wardrobe which belonged to her husband.
other notable items:
- Chunky LA gear shoes with colourful laces and those awful legwarmers! I think we fancied ourselves as some California cheerleaders. How very flattering for my already large feet
- Stockings with everything! I recall a friend who had an obsession with stockings (those with a slight sheen) which she believed improved the appearance of her legs immensely. These, she wore with the above mentioned LA gear sneakers
- MCM or Versace White jeans
