Holy Flashback!


I took my Niece shopping at Ole Naby this past weekend and lo and behold, I had a boump chicka bunh bah moment (think porn music) right there in the little girls' section of the store! Whaddya say? Late 1970's, early 1980's?? My Sis and I totally wore these. With pulled-up tube socks, of course.
I don't remember, but man, what a pain it must've been to pee...

Oh I loved these! I'd put one one right now if I could. It wouldn't be pretty, but Id still do it.

Break out the Hot Wheels and roller skates!

I think I had three of those...in all the good colors like hot pink, purple and of course, striped.

Shauna said...

I had those too! Yes, in terry cloth!

Yep, that sounds about right.
I also had some of these beauties in terry cloth. And they were sewn by my mom!

I used to live in those at the shore during the summer! I can't wait to tell my sister about them.

Too funny - nothing like clothes coming back in to make us feel old!! I had one in yellow and white terry cloth!

Toni said...

Flashback indeed! Yeah- what are they thinking? We gotta pee!

Kerry said...

I'm sure I wore these but have since blocked the memory. I will pass on this trend for a number of reasons!!!

Holy Donny and Marie Osmond! My bet is for pre-Reagan getting shot. So, 1979 or 1980. I, too, had one in terry cloth. I cannot believe that is in stores today. Just. Can't.

Greased Lightning, baby!

Oh my gosh, I saw that in Old Navy this weekend!

Didn't Jessica Simpson try to bring that back last summer? I don't recall it working then...

Aaaah! I wore those all the time when I was younger...my mom used to make them for me. I had zillions of them in different colours and patterns! That's awesome!

Houses, Couches and Babies said...

I had one that was strawberry shortcake inspired...yikes! I can't believe that is actually coming back.

Somethings should never have been cool in the first place let alone be making a come-back!

It's enough to drive you to drink...any excuse eh?

Mine was pink terry cloth.

How did I get to be this OLD?

Queen Heather said...

You are kidding? Those are NOT in style again, are they? And I do remember, they were a total PIA to pee in. Knee high tube socks were so cool. snort.

I am glad I have boys!

Dena said...

ooo yes I had plenty of these! I also just saw them at Old Navy last week and kinda cringed.. I should have saved my old ones I guess!

navybluegirl said...

I saw these yesterday! In the ladies department no less.

Elle said...

All you need is some rollerskates now!

sisters with style said...

I think I'm going to have to pass on the 80's comeback. Wasn't it bad enough when we wore it back then.

mrsmogul said...

I think my comment was eaten. It needs roller skates and I couldn't wear it because it would be a pain to pee in! Maybe adult diapers with this outfit?

Jennifer said...

I'm leaving right now to go buy me one of those hot lil' numbers! Looks like easy access for nursing!!

CakeHead said...

Yes, I recall terry cloth. YUCK! Imagining myself in one of those now...well, it makes me down right ill, I tell ya.

Amber said...

This is the kind of stuff that give me nighmares from my past....

Major Bedhead said...

Tube tops are back, too. The horror! The horror!

Lorilu said...

OH YES! I DO remember those gems!

Amanda said...

Yikes! I remember my old blue terry cloth one. I think they were kind of ugly then and they still are now. Sometimes I wonder what they're thinking at Old Naby.
