This is a rather faded photo from
Christmas past.....1969. It was taken by my boyfriend (now my husband) who was trying out his new Minolta. It is a candid shot of me in the living room of my family's farmhouse watching our black and white TV. I love the old-fashoined tree with the tinsel and glowing lights.
Ever the fiber/fashion lover, I am wearing a brown tunic vest which I crocheted that fall.
It is over a beige polyester sheath dress with
a mini-skirt! College women's dress code in those days would not allow us to wear trousers unless the sidewalks were icy (rare in Arkansas)...but we could wear mini-skirts!
Crocheted vests are popular now again....but i'd have to wear it over something other than a mini-skirt!
