Vintage Style - For Teens Only March 1968

Welcome back to Magazine Monday!  Today I am adding pictures from the fashion spread in For Teens Only from March 1968.  I have to wonder how indicative of teenage fashion in the late 60's this really is.  I mean lots of magazines have horrible clothes in them, but you never see "real people" wearing those atrocities.  If you click on the pictures you can see them much bigger, and read the full caption.  I left them tiny so it didn't take so long to scroll through.
Because I am always hoping that my husband will have one of his eyes forcibly fall out of his head just by looking at my awesome clothes :P

The first picture is a pretty wearable dress.  Well except it is purple, yellow, and orange.
The next dress is white polka dots on brown, much more subdued.  But that doesn't change that the dress looks like a tent...
Oh a nice striped shirt and black pants, nothing abominable there.  Until you realize the shirt is green and yellow stripes and the pants are green.
I think this plaid monstrosity is probably the one that makes him gouge his eyes out, which must be where they got the title from.

If he digs HARDWARE he will definitely dig this all yellow ottoman knit.  Yup, that is a selling point for me.
This one doesn't say the colors, but I think its kind of cute.  We will pretend its nice neutral colors, instead of the red and yellow it probably is :)
The dark coat is described as "straight as an arrow and just as deadly to his heart".  Were they aiming to attract guys, or maim them?

Blue floral paisley dress.  Probably atrocious, but in all honesty, I would probably wear it.

This last one is of two different fur coats.  I know wearing fur was unlikely to get you covered in red paint (or worse) back in 1968, but I still thought it was expensive.  Did teenage girls regularly wear fur?

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs

- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…
