I was looking at my bin of old magazines and catalogues today, I haven't shared any of those catalogues for a while, so, here we go, with the Simpsons Sears Fall and Winter book of 1968. I was ten years old in 1968...
My orlon pile fur was very similar to the green jacket on the lower left, it even had the fringe on the bottom. Wasn't that a serviceable jacket - it could only be dry cleaned!
Of course, I had a Sunday coat for Sunday School and "good" - that's me and Mom - notice my behive hat and mitts to match, Mom made those.
Surely I wasn't still wearing those strapper type overboots when I was ten, I don't know but I know mine were never red, they were boring brown! At one time I had a pair of those simulated seal skin boots, I must have been the height of fashion, or thought I was!!!
Hot pink must have been the in color that year, I remember getting that shirtdress and stockings for my birthday - I think this must be after those other pictures, my hair is cut. Remember fiberglass curtains, that's what my grandmother had hanging there. And the stretch slim plants with the attached footstraps, like stirrup pants, I guess - I'm sitting there with my Dad - notice the curtains again and chair.
There's a set just like the one we had.
This is the exact curtains that are hanging on the livingroom window on the above picture - they're in the little picture on the right.
There's a few other things I remember -
Striped sheets on my bed..
A big old orange piece of glassware on the coffee table, sitting on a doily.
The woodgrain kitchen set - we never had the 3 way dispenser or the matching garbage can - just the breadbox and canister set.
I was surprised to see these dishes on the lower left - I don't have to remember these at all, I can just go to the basement and open a container - they belonged to my grandmother and are supposed to be Carla's, well, they're still sitting here......
Hope you enjoyed a little look back to 1968 - it's always fun.
