Once again - Flashback Friday at the Pub....
on 2 peas. This weeks challenge was uniquely you when you were younger. I was a blue jean and tee shirt type of girl. Still love them. Now its all about the comfort rather than the butt huggin' form fitting jeans. Made this girlie because I don't get a chance to do that much. I have boys. Its pink paisley, prima, westrim bling, amer crafts chipboard accents and qk dragon fly.
journaling: Somewhere in the '70's (and I'm not sure when) there was subtle shift in the fashion that changed dungarees to JEANS. Seriously. And they became a butt huggin', stylin' piece of clothing. I remember seeing the blue jean commercial (and I forget which brand) where HIGH HEELS were being worn with jeans. Who KNEW??? For me, it then became all about the jeans. I loved them and they were comfortable, especially when broken in. I don't remember the brand, there really wasn't much to choose from; Levi's and Wranglers and maybe Calvin was breaking out. But for the most part I wore them to relax in with BIG oversized shirts. TEE shirts started their surge and a new world was born. BUT you couldn't wear them to school, church, work. YET. If you notice in the photo - this had to be summer - because well we're still in Florida and everyone had on shorts but me. I wore jeans until I couldn't take the heat or find any that fit me anymore. Then came CUTOFFS!! gasp. Recycling them comfy babies 'til they were flat worn out.
I still wear jeans today - just not the REAL butt huggin' kind and not really the standard jeans (although I'm losing weight and maybe getting closer to actually "fitting" in a pair). And I still wear oversized shirts because right here right now - it's all about comfort.
