Rememories of the Mexican Wedding Dress: Then & Now
I went to college in the early 80s. It was the era of the Official Preppy Handbook, the era before the Material Girl and Fer Sure, Fer Sure.
You remember it:
- Sperry Topsiders,
- Button-down Oxfords, (collars up)
- Madras plaid shorts, (pink & green)
- Lacoste polos
- and ribbon belts.
No giggles, please - really, how many of you can still wear your college clothes?
Huh? Be Truthful.Anyway, I still love Mexican wedding dresses and all of that wonderful ethnic embroidery. So here are a couple of pictures of my Mexican wedding dresses....Then and Now:
My roommate Peggy and I, Baylor University, Spring 1981
.sidenote: Peggy was my roommate in college and still is a very special person and friend. I spent an hour on the phone today with her consulting and shopping for cowboy boots online.
See? - the boots do have staying power.So if you see a couple of 'ol middle-agers running around in cowboy boots and Mexican Wedding dresses - that's us. Same 'ol co-eds just a little more ....never mind, I won't go there. Thanks for the rememories. I love you, Peggy!
