Nehru jackets--popular with the early Beatles, men from India, and weird girls like me...
When I was 12, bell bottoms were not belled enough. I begged and pleaded until my mother would cut slits in the bottom, and sew in a large triangle of contrasting fabric to make them bell out. I needed so much room for clearance, I hired a truck with a sign warning "Wide Load" to travel behind me. And it wasn't because of my cellulite-ridden rear end (then).
Often, the bell-bottoms were also hip-huggers. At 12 or 13, I had curves---breasts and hips--and something really strange which I've forgotten about: visible ribs.

Yikes! These are scary hip huggers. Sorry.

Aaah. That's better. THESE are the hip-huggers I remember with such fondness...
Linda O'Connell sent out an email with this link about the sixties. For those who are much younger than I am, you can see some of the groovy stuff that made our lives so rich. And if you remember that era well, this will just be a blast from the past...
And perhaps you could comment on some of the crazy hair or clothes you remember--even if they were not from the 60's.
