The Gallery - Yellow



This is me in the mid 70's doing a pretty good impression of a lemon. The canary yellow trousers were my favourites - I remember they had an embroidered sunrise on the back pockets, and I didn't want to let them go, as you can probably tell from the high flare and strain around my middle...

It makes me laugh I was so coordinated - none of that's stayed with me!  Even a yellow clip - from memory it was the shape of a pencil. Funny how things come flooding back when you take the time to look.

I showed this photo to my 5 year old, and once I'd managed to convince her it was me (quite a leap for kids sometimes..) she said, 'You're all yellow mummy'.  Indeed.

There's no way she'd wear yellow trousers. 


The Gallery theme this week is Yellow

  2. Ha..yes, I had a big canary yellow cardigan and yellow belt. You've bought back some memories of what I wore as a kid in the 70's

  3. What a refreshing change from today's ubiquitous little-girl pink! All hail to Yellowism!

    1. Funny enough don't remember wearing pink....plenty of brown/orange/yellow though, and a very fetching turquoise number I absolutely loved!

  4. What a brilliant picture! I clearly remember those clips. I had a red one! Perhaps I was dressed as a tomato! :D

  5. Agree with the above - also refreshing to read a blog from my vintage. Oh I remember the crimes against taste in those days :)
