Wacky Wednesday #18

It's true I've never watched an episode of "Little House On The Prairie". This school picture will help explain one of the reasons why. Because I was forced to wear outfits like this. I was a tomboy trapped in the body clothing of a prairie girl. Ok, maybe the dresses on LHOP were longer (I have seen LHOP commercials), but I'm sure the height of my knee socks make up for it. I know many of you have fond feelings toward that show, and hopefully we can still be friends.

Considering the fact that my mom comes from Amish and Mennonite roots, I suppose the outfits could've been worse.

And yes, I'm aware of how ridiculously large my glasses were.

  4. The mom in me that now appreciates dresses and skirts says, 'how cute!'

    But I remember being forced into clothing with only one hole for both my legs and hated it. I never had to wear knee socks like that, but I would have preferred them. My mom was big on pantyhose, and I hated them so much I tried cutting them down to make them thigh-hi's .. that didn't work out too well for me lol.

  5. I think you look smokin' hot. Seriously. It makes me long for the late 70's/early 80's. That was OUR time, you know?

    And I'm feeling the sudden urge to school you in the love of LHOTP. It's in my top 10 of all time fave shows.

    It's no Buffy, mind you...but Laura and Almanzo were the big stuff back then.

    No really I'm so glad when I got old enough to dress my self my mom let me pick my style. All boy all the time! LOL I shopped in the boys department tell I hit my teens year. Then I decided I needed to look a little more girly, but not much! LOL

  8. Oh, I love Little House on the Praire. And am so sad that my girls have proclaimed it borrrriiiingg.

    But I had an even worse outfit. I had those socks. And some short shorts. A unicorn t-shirt. And rainbow suspenders. I was stylin' - yes, I was.

    Thanks so much for visiting Georgia the other day!

  10. I love you even more now. We could be the blind soul sisters in really bad clothes!
    (Actually I think mine were probably quite fashionable at the time, and I know my mom spent countless hours sewing for me, but looking back...)
    Just for you I am going to have my mom send me the Mr. Peepers picture so I can post it.

  12. I think I had that exact same outfit and my mom WASN'T from Amish OR Mennonite roots. Blame the times, I guess.
