TAKE ME BACK TUESDAY....1978

Today I am taking you back to the 70's when I was still in elementary school and was inspired to wear my mother's cool 70's clothing for Halloween.  Yep, I wanted to be like her, stuffing my bra and posing  in front of her Olds in which she let us soap up the eve before on Mischief night.  She was cool like that.  All of the neighborhood kids helped soap up her car and she drove around like that.  Insane but funny! WFil was obviously the hot music station at the time.  I know that I had her platforms on but unfortunately, they didn't make the photo.  I would totally wear that outfit now if I had those items.  My mom and I were chatting the other day about these photos that I have been posting and I asked her if she had any of the clothing or shoes from then but she said that they were all gone....bummer!  Hey, have a great Tuesday darlings, imagine if I found a dress like that in the thrift...hopefully I will.  Lots of love, Dawn xo
