The 90's Called...


...and asked for their wind suits back! We are having an "Out-of-Date" Date Party for my sorority, and I had to think of something original. I swear I can remember my mom wearing wind suits very similar to this when she played tennis and picked up carpool. Too bad she didn't save any of them... I had to go to the Thrift Store to find these goodies! They have the zip legs and all!


I cannot wait for Fabulous Roomie and I to get to wear these! I think our dates are going to find ones that are a little less obnoxious, but they were just as excited as we are :) I am taking one of my best friends from high school. He has been the date extrodinaire for all occasions, from sorority dress up parties to deb balls.

Finding these was like a blast from the past, and it made me think back to everything that I loved and missed about the 90's. All of the wonderful music, middle school, fads like Beanie babies and Furby... the list could go on and on! I would love to hear some of yall's favorite memories, fads, or items from the 90's!

That's hysterical! I'm pretty sure I had both of those same suits in the late 80's or early 90's and at one point, I also had a windbreaker that came with a matching fanny pack! hahahahaha I was 10 so I think it's okay!

Soooo funny! My mom and gma were all about wind suits. My sister and I even wore them with turtle necks underneath-gross! Remember Giga pets too?

LOL ... so funny. I have to say I never owned a 'wind suit' but I remember having a set of huge shoulder pads that I stuck into every shirt I owned! Just couldn't get those shoulders big enough! ;)
