What's PennyWearing? #65 Another Outfit From The 70's
Today, Penny models for you yet another of my outfits that I have held on to since the 1970's.
I know....I'm crazy.
Whatever. This is a skirt and top made out of a stretchy polyester knit.
I even still have the necklace I wore with it - the green one. I added the other one for my photos of Penny, because I thought it looked nice, with colors to match the stripes.
The outfit was a Christmas gift from my boyfriend at the time. His name was Garry and he passed away a few years ago, I am sorry to say. He was a great guy, and I remain close with his family to this day. Here I am opening my outfit:
As usual, I can NOT believe that I was ever small enough to wear this. But yes, I was - and here's the proof, below. I wish I still had those shoes! Burnt orange suede platforms - I loved those shoes:
(And before you say anything - Yes, I AM aware of how awful that "Afro-style" perm was. It was kind of the fad at the time. Young and stupid, what can I say?)
Now that I have photographed my 70's skirt and top for posterity, I am going to let it go.
I know, I know - it's about time.
