Remember my closet? There are some big time fashion don'ts in there (flannel? Really? Apparently I'm a lumberjack, and I'm OK) but it's the closet in my spare room where I found the real beauts.
But before I show you let me say this: these are items of clothing I own that I'm way too sentimental about to throw away. They're a piece of my history - ancient history, but still history - and I just can't part with them. Do you hear me? I WILL NOT be parted with them. You can try but you'll have to take them out of my cold, dead hands.
Prepared to be dazzled.
Grateful Dead - 1993
I think it was in 1993. Certain substances passed around at Dead concerts make you forget things. Heh.
But wait, there's more!
The last tour I saw before Jerry died. May he rest in peace.
We're not done yet! It gets better.
Official concert tee of Metallica's ...And Justice for All tour 1989 or 90.
Not just a tee, but a tank. And an extra-large to boot. At the time of this concert I weighed, maybe, 105 pounds. Zexy.
Reaching back further into the way back machine...
Def Leppard - Hysteria tour 1988(?)
The one in the round. The one where Rick Allen came back as the incredible one-armed drummer. The one where Joe Elliot wore those torn jeans. The one that made me feel all warm and fuzzy in my girlie parts.
And the Pièce de résistance
Journey - Raised on Radio tour 1987
And if you will notice the Chachi bandana. I wore that, yes I did.
This is part of the Parent Bloggers Network blog blast in association with Harper Collins new release "The Little Black Book of Style" by Nina Garcia.
If you'd like to get in on the action (a $250 Coach gift certificate is up for grabs!! I probably shouldn't tell you this because my chances will be decreased. Damn, too late.) write a post about the fashion blunders that are currently in your closet.
