Bobby Sox and Poodle Skirts
Vicki, will you wear your poodle skirt? Please!
I've been trying to get Becky Char '65 (my FL) to
wear her skirt with those brown and white shoes (what were they called?-like
the old Buster Brown shoes- "...you got shoes, I got shoes, everybody's
gotta have shoes...but there's only one kinda shoes for me....good 'ol
Buster Brown shoes...") and bobby socks to the Saturday night sock hop
at CHAS '98. Add one of those neat scarves too.
It's either that or I'll have to wear the
Polynesian stuff. You know, those real bright printed Hawaiian shirts.
I told her to forget the Tongan war dress though.
My choice would be a black t-shirt and blue
jeans, but Becky didn't like it then and she probably wouldn't like it
Becky still has lots of her clothing from
How about a best era dress contest for CHAS?
What's funny about all this is that my youngest daughter
(24) and her boy friend are late 50's and 60's garu's and just went to
Las Vegas for a get together of all the fanatics about this period. She
dresses in old style clothes and listens to Elvis and all the artists that
I like. She is a clothing designer in LA and tells me that all of these
designs are coming back.

John P! Those shoes were called (I think) saddle oxfords
not sure why maybe for those brown and white horses? If you wear black
tee best stay inside in air conditioning, Chas will be cookin. Of course
some of us women will probably be in black for another reason, tricks the
