Ddeby has shown a merry disposition
Age 7 - 1974: Lots of "Jan Brady" plaid pants, bell bottoms, gold and brown tops.

Age 14 - 1981: Were acid washed jeans in yet in '81? If so I was wearing them!

Age 21 - 1990: Big hair leftover from the 1980s, tight ankle tapered jeans, flat white gogo boots, and enormous earrings that you could wear as a bracelet if you wanted.
Good times.....good times!

Age 7-1987...I was wearing traditional 80s stuff. That would be around the time I got my favorite t-shirt (probably 1988 or even '89, though) that said Nintendo on it and had the Mario characters around the logo. I have a vivid memory of riding my bike one nice fall evening as the sun set, thinking, "It's Friday night, I'm on my bike, I have my favorite t-shirt on, we're having pizza for dinner, and Full House is coming on. Life just doesn't get better!"

Age 14-1994...Don't remember oddly enough but I know pictures exist to remind me.

Age 21-2001...Very close to what I wear now at age 33...polo shirts, jeans, khaki shorts, etc. I always prefer short-sleeve shirts as I'm very hot natured.

Oh my golly! I have two words for you....
PRAIRIE DRESS!

My sister and I wore the heck out of prairie dresses. And smock tops too; those blousy, wide bottomed tops that had the little pocket right in the front. And I remember having one of those one piece pant suits with the really baggy legs. We were too young for miniskirts, but my Mom let us have a 'short' (knee length) skirt. We thought we were very daring. We had some tie-died things too...that was all the rage when I was a kid. Wow, those were good times!
