    Poor Red! How did we ever survive those 70’s fashion trends?

    The shirt is all wrong. White would attract dirt like crazy, so maybe a denim jacket over said shirt?

    It’s an outfit that will bring joy to all the other kids at school who sees it!

    August 30, 1970. A stamp was six cents and Nixon was in the White House.

    Bell bottom pants and platform shoes were my favorite

    Those clothes are conservative compared to what I wore! Do a stylin’ walk and you are all set, Red!

    Add some vertical stripes to the pants and make it a turtleneck instead and send me off to kindergarten, baby! (You can keep the platform shoes, too, I think I wore Keds.)

    Remember the bell bottoms with cuffs? I found all sorts of things I dropped by checking the cuffs.

    I wore very similar clothes from 1982 to 1990. all hand me downs from my older brothers who wore them in the late 60’s early 70’s. being poor really gave you out of date clothes back then.

    A kid not wearing sneakers is an unhappy kid.

    Lose the platform shoes and it looks like stuff I used to wear in the ’60s.

    British school uniform of the time – white shirt, school tie, blazer, gym slip for girls, short pants for boys, three-quarter wool socks and lace-up shoes.
