Okay, there may be a few people that want to poke my eyes out right now for posting this picture. First let me say that I DID NOT make these uniforms, and I NEVER thought they were cool. I couldn’t resist posting a pic though for Flashback Friday, since it does have to do with fashion (or the lack thereof) and textiles.
Can you believe my dental hygiene instructors at Coastal Bend College in Beeville, TX made us wear these uniforms? Obviously they hated us for some reason. People literally pointed and laughed at us while we walked to school wearing these uniforms. The fact that the yellow pants and top were also see-through didn’t help us out any. So awkward. Wow, maybe I should delete this post right now… I wouldn’t feel so bad if this had occurred in the 70s, but no, it was 2002. Not quite long enough ago to take the pain away, that’s for sure.
On a more pleasant note, Amnah sent in this cute journal that she made (yes, the same Amnah that won the giveaway… she’s pretty popular around here lately):
I found this picture in album/book that I made for an art class over 6 years ago. I made that. Sure in these days of all things etsy and handmade it seems like no big deal. But this was before etsy. This was before Target started selling the same exact design on a journal. Oh I was so proud of this lil guy. Even my art teacher was impressed.
