End of School Year Fluff

1.  Do your kids go to school on the last day of school?

2.  Do you throw (or let them throw) an end of year party for their friends?

3.  How many *graduation ceremonies* will/have your children experienced in their life time?

A quick google search revealed the following photos of 80s fashion: So yeah, lots of cropped shirts. The swing skirts were there too, but not in the quantity that cropped shirts were.  Although one of my senior pics was of me in a crop top and swing-ish skirt.

Per Wiki, Madonna popularized crop tops in her Lucky Star video. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crop_top

I love Express's jeans. I find them to be the best fitting, most comfortable jeans out there. And while your high schoolers may not be caught dead in there, that may change in a few years as my collegians shop there quite a bit. 

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

I had three kids in the 80's so a lot of my attire was maternity wear.

"I love Express's jeans." ----------- I discovered Benetton jeans last year. They are cheap and the fit they call "regular" or some such is completely OK for old ladies like me, without being mom jeans.

I personally don't think this is a popular store either (kind of like how Gap and Benetton was when I was in high school). It seems to get less volume than the other newer stores.

Do you see many women over the age of 20 exposing their midriff (minus bathing suits) in public?

Wow. Didn't even know they were still around. At least I know the stores haven't been in the malls since I was in high school.
