I also came across these
and these... (albeit neither pair was in good condition)
that were worn daily with my uniform, this
which I wore with this even though I wasn't supposed to... because we were only allowed to wear solid color shetlands, navy, green, yellow, white... and when caught wearing these we would be forced to remove them and toss them in our lockers. (I was quite the rebel in my day.)
I loved this sweater and wore it well into my college years. Isn't it so sad that LLBean no longer makes them? I mean, this was the ultimate preppy sweater of the 80s! But I have news for you! I did a little research and learned that this sweater will be available again in 2010... well, that's practically around the corner!
I don't even think Fair Isle Sweaters were permissible as they were not "of solid color" but I am pretty sure I tried to wear those too!
I also came across letters... oodles and oodles of them, from friends and boyfriends. (Old boyfriends, Daddy! I have none other than you ... for the moment! LOL) What fun it was to read all those and read my old adress books too!
Most fun were all the pictures I came across... from my days at the Lycee Francais de New York, The Hewitt School, Camp Chateaugay and my brief two year stint at St. Mary's School in Wantage, Oxfordshire, UK (which inspired my This Shandy is Dandy Post over at The Entertaining Kitchen)...
What a fun time capsule my closet had become!
