Dog House Blog, Blast From The Past, We Have A Passion For Fashion!

Today we are going to have a blast from the past and take a look at some fashion that are more miss than hit. We say thank you to Mark over here for giving us this idea. Now let's take a trip down memory lane.

Indeed you'd collared by the fashion police if you wore this!

And so to bed! Did anyone tell her she still has her shower cap on?

The family that dresses together stays together!

Wow we could make it Tank Top Thursday! Couldn't we?

For all you knitters out there. Smile you so know you want one!

Men we can't have you feeling left out. Ask the dear lady to run you up one of these.

Do you think they do a squirrel version?

Wow slack power? More kak power!

And lastly look good in the hood!

Have a terrific Tank Top Thursday folks.


  1. SHE remembers some of those--not to say SHE wore Them!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  2. Oh Molly.....long - long times ago there was living here a young women/lady and she did wear this "perfect" clothes with her /my boss too and if they will live more years longer - they will never wear these funny 70th again - what a new fantasic post - it gives her and me some great memories. Thanks and laughs I send over the canal.
    Wuff and LG

  3. Oh yes, I was a teenager in the 70s, we had paper dresses, platform shoes, flares, flower power, it's all coming back in you know - just you wait!

  4. OMD I and dying here of laughter! Great retro stuff! What's really funny is we have a lady that only works a few days a month at work and she wears a lot of retro stuff that looks very much like photo #1 and I have to say I always look forward to her arrival days so I can see what she'll wear, boots all all - she has all sorts of retro stuff and does it I think to sorta be fun and silly but somehow it's really "her" and is actually cute on her while being a flashback too! BOL!! Great post as always to get my morning off to a wonderful start! Thanks!

  5. Deew sweet Molly
    I have seen yoo aways looking most fashunabull, but those examples make me fall ovew laughing. Mommi has sum majow misses fwom when she was young in the seventies, hehehe
    Smoochie kisses

  6. You found some great pictures, but the family all in matching sleepwear has to be the scariest!

  7. I REMEMBER THESE FASHIONS WHILE IN MIDDLE SCHOOL! And what were they thinking in those days about nightys for young women....a granny cap? WOW! TImes have CHANGED miss molly!

  8. Those are all hilarious! It makes you wonder what styles we are wearing today that we will be laughing at 40 years from now? Any ideas? Maybe the Uggs boots all the kids wear, or the sparkly shoes...It's funny how it seems normal while you are living it, and then hilarious many years later.....

  9. And this is why I go naked!

  10. Hi Molly,

    Thats so funny ...... looks like less of the dressing up box, more like an acid trip, you need something to go out in those!

  11. OMD WE are glad that our peeps are the Blue Jeans and sweatshirt types...

  12. I can't believe that was ever cool. The first dress, the nightshirts and the last pic especially.

  13. Please call the fashion police! My granny had such a dress with a killer-collar. It was screaming orange with white dots. I'm glad she wasn't arrested for wearing such an eye-killer, think she had to stay in jail till the eternity for this fashion-crime :o) Have a fashionable thursday Molly :o)

  14. Were is the Disco Music?

    The Mad Scots

  15. Strange but true sweet Molly!

  16. BOL! We can't wait to restock Mums and Dads wardrobe - can that first collar BE any bigger.

  19. MOL Molly my mom said she had worn nearly all of the ladies items except the gown and night cap...Mom hates gowns she is a PJ girl
    Hugs Madi your BFFF
    PS my dad had some plaid polyester pants 87 years ago. Mom said my sis used to call them clown pants.

  20. Molly, that first dress would be cute if it weren't for that bizarre collar. Yep, these gems are what some people wore back in the day. That last one is really hilarious. Pimp my closet!

    Susan and Wrigs

  21. Oh my goodness. That gave me such a laugh!

  22. We can just our Mom sporting one of those nighties with the matching "shower" cap. But we would really love to see Dad wearing one of those nightshirts and then getting up in the morning to don those plaid slacks - what a hoot that would be!!!

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  23. I will NOT admit to ever wearing any of these...but let's just say that some of them do look familiar BOL! I remember a large disagreement over the wearing of plaid pants...He wore them, and now he's an 'ex' ...some things just can't be compromised
