"Don't look in the closet,
or under the beds,
or in any mysterious nook
Where things may be hidden-
It's simply forbidden
when Christmas is coming-
I have to confess to my mom. One Christmas, I looked.
Or quite possible it was an accidental find, but a deliberate investigation. And I was of High School age too!
I think around 15 or 16 and happened to notice a green, styl'n leather jacket in the spare closet among all the other cloths. A leather jacket that was so cool to own and that I'd desperately wanted for years. And because I wanted to be different than everyone who had a brown leather jacket, I chose forest green. The color of the early 90s.
And to top the outfit, I even had forest green sued boots, and forest green jeans that I so fashionable wore all together! What a sight, and I'm sad I couldn't find a picture.
That, and the big hair bows I sported are my most embarrassing fashion ensembles of the 90s. At least I had gotten rid of the hair claw in junior high. few!!
