Vintage prep.

Eloise RHS 1982

My friend Jill at Tickled Pink and Green challenged her blog readers to post an old preppy picture of themselves. My sister shared this lovely photo on Facebook not too long ago, so it was one I could access readily (admittedly not the best picture of me!).

This was likely my junior or senior year of high school. To the left of me are my good friends, Traci and Scarlet, and we are at a football game. I am wearing one of my all-time favorite outfits: a J.G. Hook madras blouse, pink cardigan and pink wide-wale corduroy skirt, all purchased at Estroff's department store in Vidalia, GA. You can't see my legs in the picture, but I guarantee you I was wearing navy cabled knee socks and my tasseled Weejun loafers. I still have this outfit and the shoes.

After my sister shared this on Facebook, my roommate from my freshman year at SMU commented that I was wearing that outfit the first time she met me!

I don't know what you mean - I think it's an adorable picture of you!

My gawd though - how do you remember all those details about your clothes?? IMPRESSIVE!

You look adorable! I love your outfit. I forgot all about J.G. Hook--I wonder if it is still around?

I always wore navy knee socks too and I hadn't thought about it for years.
