"Here's What I Wore"...That skirt was one of my favorites--a pink and green wrap-around skirt I bought at the Casual Hut, the place to shop back in the day in Augusta, Georgia. The white blouse is a "Country Club Blouse" with a Peter Pan collar. The collar was monogrammed in pink and had a pink piping trim! I want that blouse back, right now...it was too cute! The pink cable cardigan sweater was from Trimmingham's in Bermuda--now closed, but one of my all-time favorite stores! My shoes...pink espadrilles and monogrammed in white...yes ma'am! I'm carrying a cute pink Bermuda Bag also monogrammed...in white. My ponytail is adorned with a pink grosgrain ribbon. I can see I'm wearing my Rolex Chameleon watch with the pink (interchangeable) grosgrain ribbon, which I've not worn for years!!! I need to start wearing that watch again--it has its own wardrobe, different colored bands, enabling it to be worn with different outfits! The necklace I'm wearing was very popular back then...gold memory beads--loved 'em! I'm also wearing gold disk monogrammed earrings and the matching monogrammed ring...still have those also.
Now, here's another photo...from way back to my days at Richmond Academy in Augusta, Georgia. Here's the cheerleading squad in our uniforms--monogrammed vests, country club blouses, and the cute plaid skirts. We were also wearing Spaldings...de rigueur back then! I'm the last one the right on the top row, with the flippity-do!) Preppy cheerleaders at the oldest high school in the South...yes ma'am!
