Daily Prompt: New Sensation – Fad

From the Daily Post:  Ah, sweet youth. No matter whether you grew up sporting a fedora, penny loafers, poodle skirts, bell-bottoms, leg-warmers, skinny jeans, Madonna-inspired net shirts and rosaries, goth garb, a spikey mohawk, or even a wave that would put the Bieber to shame, you made a fashion statement, unique to you. Describe your favorite fashions from days of yore or current trends you think are stylin’.

Well, I did sport penny loafers, saddle oxfords, poodle skirts, bell bottoms, hot pants, leg warmers, etc. I just don’t happen to have pictures of all of them.  Some of them, yes, but I’ll spare you!  These old photos have faded terribly and I don’t have or know how to use any photo editing software such as Photoshop.  So, for now, these are as good as they get!

As you can see from the first photo, the style was the ever-popular polyester leisure suit. You can’t tell from the picture but my leisure suit was a bright burnt orange.  The second one shows the bell bottom jeans. Maybe not original but certainly up on the current style! Of course, I was wearing the ever popular “boat” shoes, now modernized and renamed such things as Wedges, Platforms, etc. The hair was the usual long, straight (as straight as I could get the waves) and parted in the middle! Ah, nostalgia…
