Cliff Fromm and Beth Cummings...I could pick you out right away! Pat Moore- 4th row, right end...what is going on with your SLEEVES??? I don't remember EVER seeing that style- but it must have been around. Remember how all us girls HAD to wear skirts to school- pants were not allowed! With those stupid GARTER BELTS to hold up our stockings! And fixing 'runs' with clear nail polish??? And we still had stockings with SEAMS up the backs...which now it seems that only the 'ladies of the evenings" wear! imagine how great it would have been to wear jeans and sneakers to school every day instead of skirts and stockings! Tough riding a bike to school in those skirts...either tightly fitted slim skirts or full skirts with lots of crinolines, as many as we could get under the full skirts!! And remember the socks we wore? The more pairs of socks you could get on your feet, the better! We all looked like we had CASTS on our ankles, and they made our shoes so TiGHT! And our quilted full skirts and poodle skirts!!! Our styles were so influenced by American bandstand. I remember ironing my COLLARS only on my white cotton shirts- because we only showed our collars under a crew neck sweater- so why iron the whole thing! And the backward cardigans, buttoned up the back with a scarf tied around our necks? Hey, the kids today HAVE NOTHING ON US!!! LOL!
