In this week's Sincerely 'Fro Me to You, I'd like to share a picture of my mom, brother and me on our vacation. My dad snapped this shot of us standing in front of a road sign in Vincennes, IN, on our way to New Orleans. [This is a favorite landmark of my parents. They always took pictures of us in front of signs. This is actually a clever idea because years later you can remember where you were.]
The reason I focused on this picture is to show you that stirrup pants existed before the 80's. Yes, those are stirrup pants I'm wearing. The year was probably 1966. Also, note the cool Keds I was wearing. I'm not sure but I think my brother had red ones on! I always thought my brother looked like Beaver Cleaver when he was little.
Mom wore a skirt and blouse outfit. Back in those days, I don't remember her wearing pants except around the house or to work. [She worked at a factory.]
I've often heard that fashion trends go in cycles. If stirrups were popular in the 60's and the 80's, looks like we might be due for some more stylin' stretch pants!
