  •  I never paid any attention to clothes. Don't know (12+ / 0-)

    why. Just wore whatever Mama picked out. of course, this was mostly 1950-1965. I went to college with what was left-over from H.S. days, it was enough.

    I finally became interested in clothes, somewhat, when I found the SCA and decided the long dresses & sleeves of the 1100's or so were fairly attractive, and not that bad ON my body, which has almost always been about 100# over my height (OR, I'm about a foot short for my weight?)

    SCA, at age 25-30, was also where I went partner-hunting for the first time; real late bloomer, me. Actual pre-selected guys who had SOME interests beyond alcohol!

    •  I made my own cloths in high school in the 1960's. (9+ / 0-)

      It was the only way I didn't always have to wear hand me downs from cousins.

    •  What kind of shoes were under the SCA garments? (6+ / 0-)

        then, mostly light-weight slippers, meant for modern indoors, but OK for dry outdoors, "Ecotopia" used to be dry in the summers! Haven't been to many events lately, but teh DH uses a period Viking design made up in Elk and Buffalo by a local artisan over 25 years ago!

        I don't really remember, but "early days" for me started around 1976! Possibly I just wore whatever I was wearing at home, safely under long skirts. That was the period I was wearing steel-toe work-boots at work, so that would have been too much to hide!

        (I currently wear Isotoner satin "ballet" style house-slippers inside TEVA "water shoes" 24/7, in retirement. I have insulated galoshes (duck hunters) for really cold, but mostly that's it!)
