Memory day...lol Ya, it's funny because if we don't laugh we may cry and there's NO crying in Koffee Klatch. This is happy/fun time. So, what fads do you remember from your teen or high school years? Popular hairstyles? Clothes? And did you "participate" or were you one of those who did their own thing and didn't care what the fads or fashions were at the time.
I was a teenager in the mid 60's...that's the 1960's for those who are laughing or wondering.
It was the time of the Beetles, white buckskin shoes, A-line dresses and big hair, then long, straight hair...lol Just after I was out of high school Woodstock was all over the news. Groupies were where it was at and being UNIQUE was the only way to be...just like everyone else. I always thought it was so funny that the kids all were rebelling because they didn't want to conform yet they all looked like each other.
I remember cashmere sweaters were to die for and drive in movies were what dates were all about
. Guys who wore tight jeans, slicked back hair and white t-shirts with a pack of cigarettes rolled up in the sleeve were greasers.... and IMHO were disgusting. I preferred either some of the guys in FFA or ones with a more preppy look, thank you very much.
As for me...I was such a rebel.
NOT! I wore fairly plain clothes and 'sturdy' saddle shoes that were good for my feet. I wasn't like in orthopedic shoes or anything THAT horrid, but my mother and I sewed all of my clothes so being very trendy was hard. But I didn't mind because I was more interested in math and science classes than who just got new 'squash' heals or go-go boots. And listening to the whispering in the halls about
who actually saw "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf"!
One girl actually had a copy of the book<gasp!> You have GOT to be kidding!
OK, my memory has gotten way out of hand here...but you get the picture. What fads were around when you were a teen?
Play fair. Don't hit people. Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
