What did you think was cool then....

[ Edited ]

when you were young, but isn't cool now? Words, clothes, make-up, or anything you can think of! Here's one of mine. I can't believe I wore this and thought it looked cool. We all looked pregnant! This picture is not me.

Sorry picture is so big.  Didn't mean to do that. It's not me, by the way. These were called tent dresses.

For me, it's tv shows.

 

As a child, I watched Gilligan's Island, Three's Company, Brady Bunch, and when I was older, Seinfeld, and at the time, I loved them.

 

 

But now, I can't stand to watch them, because I find the shows to be stupid.

I think you look cute! I remember wearing bell bottoms in grade school. I guess they were in back then, but I think they look really dumb now.

Ladies I should have said....That picture is not me!  I went looking for a dress from the 60's that looked like the one I had and this picture came up.  I did have one almost just like it (only in blue) and my hair was long and straight like this picture!

I have a confession to make.  To this day I still love navy blue mascara!

I always loved watches and as a teen I had a set of those watches

that you could pop out into a new colored band to match your

outfits.

 

Always had fun with them. Picture is only from internet, not mine.
