Remember Bonnie Doon knee socks?

Wore them all of the time in junior high. Hose were for church & special events. Since we had to wear skirts or dresses to school, many cold knees.

Yes, sort of. My skirts were never short but I did wear them with plaid skirts and crew neck sweaters. Very preppie.

DB cable knit knee socks were part of our school uniforms in both elementary and high school. K-4 had to wear ankle socks; the big girls wore knee socks.

Mine got all stretched out and wouldn't stay up anymore. My friends and I would put rubber bands around our legs to hold them up. Ahh, memories...

Anyone every wear hose with sneakers/or what we called "gym shoes"? That was a short-lived craze when I was young. My mom flipped when I asked to wear them and said "no way".

Yes! A new selection of Bonnie Doones was a staple in our back to school shopping since I was in Elementary school!. Ah such fine memories, the innocense!

hulagirl we wore those all thru school years (well not exclusively!) until probably 5th grade, we called them coulottes? Mom made our clothes and knit our sweaters all growing up and I just love those memories. Bonnie Doone being a big part of the outfit, had to have BD's!!


This is o/t to the socks but a poster here the other day I think it was blondielocks remembers her grandmother hemming her skirts for her as a youngen, she said 'if this skirt is any shorter they will see your fork' lol, I laughed pretty good at that one (anyone else think that was paper towel to the monitor read?) as I remember those days.. An odd thing to say for sure but I remember all those yrs of my mother or my oldest sis that is also a great seamstress measuring our dresses or skirts or coulottes ug, it seemed like it took forever! Wow, I'm reliving my young school days too!


HaPpY DaYs~

eta~ Yes Croemie, Brittney had the Bonnie Doones in her early video, drawing a blank at which one, but you are right!

Yes I did. Did you polish your fabric Keds? Ours had to be spotless for gym inspection and indoor, winter cheerleading.

I wore them, too in Jr. High/thanks for that memory!

I also remember wearing them with laceup shoes, and my two tone Oxfords, and with my rubber boots in the rain.....ah, junior high days.

They did stretch out huh, I remember mom made us elastic bands about half inch thick stitched together at the end to make our socks stay up, they were a pain at recess!!

Oh geez, then we had those other little summer socks, really thin anklets that slid down in your shoe half way thru the day, I'm making myself laugh at my young school days. They were the best!

I never had Capezio feet{#emotions_dlg.sad} and couldn't wear them

FLBB---Oh, I loved and adored my capezios. I had a beautiful red pair and my favorites were tan with cream polkadots sewn all over them. I loved their high heels too. I wore the capezio flats and heels with stockings (garter belts too). I wore my spaulding loafers with knee socks. Great look with plaid pleated skirts and wool bermudas on the weekend.
