Laura Ashley dress. I had a dressjust like this when I was a child in about 1979. I didn't really like it then!

1975 geography teacher style's back!

Oh my Lord, I swear I wore that back in the mid seventies!

I don't mind it. I think it's been posted before and my eyes may have grown accustomed to it.

I've still got a Laura Ashley 'milkmaid' dress I bought in 1974. It has the 'Made in Wales' label.
Fear ye not, this is one trend I'll be happy to sit out.

I'm pretty sure I wore that the first time around to my dbros 21st birthday, which must have been 1978.... it had lace panels going down over each boob, which was interesting!!!

Floisme stick it on ebay and send me the link.

I've thought about it many times, Maud but I'm kind of attached to it, even though I'll never wear it again, not even as fancy dress. (I can't zip it up for a start.) I bought it for my 18th and it feels part of my personal history, if that doesn't sound too wanky.

This is why I should be hanging out on Frugal's hoarding thread.

But if I do change my mind, I'll PM you!

Hoarder here too, some things you just can't part with for reasons of nostalgia. I have the dcs baby clothes still.

I quite like that! I was only 3 in 1979 though.

Shoes with platform soles/wedge shoes
Flared (aka bootcut) trousers
Maxi skirts

I wore all of the above in the 1970s

I still have this in my wardrobe!

I wish I'd kept my royal blue corduroy hotpants, complete with bib, circa 1970. I've never owned anything since that was half as fabulous.
