Flashback Friday: The Super Stylish Shirt

The Shirt: 

circa 2010 


circa 2006

circa 1983

A couple random thoughts:

1.  How is it that homemade clothes can last approximately 27 years longer than the clothes I buy at Kohls? 

2.  These pictures are exhibit A for why my camera was worth every penny.  It's amazing to see the quality difference even in the 2 most recent pictures.

3.  Why can't grown women wear cute loosely fitted shirts like that without someone asking when you're due? 

4.  Whatever money my parents put towards my orthodontic work was money well spent!

Interesting that the colors are still so vivid-a good cameral really does make a difference.

Fascinating that so many of your childhood clothes have been passed down to each of your daughters in turn.

Wow! I'm amazed that the shirt is still in that good of shape after all these years (especially surviving Emma :o) ). Who made it?

You and Nate were adorable!

I love the pictures! That shirt is awesome! Did Mom make it?

I'm impressed that you kept the shirt that long and remember to use it too. I tend to keep things, but then pack them up and forget about them.

Totally agree about the camera too. I'm so happy I finally took the plunge and got one too!
