THE GREAT CULOTTE INCENDENT

THE GREAT CULOTTES INCIDENT of 73(ISH)
Barb reminded me of this before I made a huge fashion mistake a few days ago.
 
 
Just when you think your fashion sense could not get any lower it happened. Yes I am referring to the culottes craze of the 1970's . Now in general it wasn't that bad. It was like having a pair of pants that was a skirt. Barb pointed out to me that Barbara Stanwick wore them all the time. (You all remember the BIG VALLEY) .And really who didn't want to look like her. Anyway back on point. We were all going to this big shindig over at uncle Buds for Donny's going away or coming home ( cant' remember)from the service and mom made us girls some culottes. Not the kind Barbara Stanwick wore either. I am not sure where she found the lovely fabric for these but I can bet it was on the clearance rack at TG&Y. OH it was loaded with sailboats and anchors and various nautical pictures. Was it the Navy Donny was in???.Have never ever or will ever never consider wearing culottes again. Lets see I think there was a red white and blue, a green blue and white ???  We sure looked sharp( Gone with the wind sharp if you know what I mean.  I still don't know why Pat and Gregory didn't get any it just was not fair. THANK YOU B for reminding me of this before I purchased some !!!!
 
PS. Mom you are the best love you . Not all girls can say their mom was a fashionista !!!!! Now get out there and make the boys some I think you hurt their feelings.
 
On another note, if you google culottes a few choice web sights pop up HEEE.
 
Looking for a Pic anyone ???
