Happy Easter my loves! I’m playing Easter Bunny and overdosing on candy, so Gayle offered to say hello and entertain all of you with her shenanigans! She’s fabulous people, and you’re going to love this (and her)! Take it away Gayle!
Hey all you Hooah readers! I’m Gayle, and I blog over at Grace for Gayle. You may or may not have noticed my little banner ad showing up below the posts here on Hooah and Hiccups this month. So, I hope you already know who I am. If not, here’s me!
Yes, I, Gayle, started at least five clothing fads in the late 80s and early 90s. How do I know this? Because, I was doing these things before they were cool. People admired me. People wanted to look like me. People wanted to be like me. Heck, people wanted to BE me!*
So, what 80s and 90s trends can you thank me for?
// cuffed jean shorts //
Anyway, I started cuffing my shorts so they would be shorter at school, but I could still leave the house. Suddenly? Everyone else was doing it too!
// keds //
Along with rolled socks, yes. Keds. With puffed paint. In fact, it was weird to me when Keds with the pre-drawn pictures on them came out, because I had been drawing on my shoes for years. The pre-drawn shoes seemed soooooo unnecessary.
I think Keds must have been profiling me, because they kept stealing my ideas. Colored Keds? It’s called Crayola marker, people!
// adidas sambas //
// vests //
Mmmm hmmm! Vests. They were out, they were in, they were out, they were in . . . and who do you think wore them the entire time she was in elementary school?!
// scrunchies //
So, as you can see, I am quite the trendsetter. It would be in your best interest to keep track of me and my fashion choices. Lucky for you, I am pretty easy to find, over at my blog. Come check out what I’m up to, and mayyyyybe if you’re lucky, I’ll share an outfit or two!
Thanks for having me, Samantha! Later, chickadees!!
