I blogged earlier this year about how women's clothes were not as colorful as they were in the early 80s. I found that one of these magazines was an August 1979 "Back to School" issue of Seventeen. I thought that since I hadn't post much lately I could at least post the back to school pics for the ladies that read this blog to reminisce.
Much to my dismay I discovered that the back to school clothes for girls in 1979 were drab and boring. This seemed to be the start of that horrible preppy phase that plagued my generation. Most of the clothes were brown tweed. The emphasis was on sweaters, long skirts and knee socks. Also little tams and knit caps were the must have accessory. This is what all the little, rich snooty girls wore. Who picked these clothes to be the "popular" back to school clothes? PROBABLY SOMEONE'S MOMMY!!!
