Those moms were totally rocking the original Maxi-dress!
I was born in the 70's, but my elderly aunt has a closet full of that stuff. I remember looking through her closet when I was a kid and being kind of embarrassed for her. Lime green poly pants, with purple bells that hung like they were flower petals, anyone? Or, maybe the russet brown and flaming orange poly tunic in geometric shaped prints? Yeah.
Can I criticize? I recall alot of flourescent, rubber and fishnets in my wardrobe. (Cindy Lauper and Madonna wannabes... you know the look) blech! I was SO happy that I got out of that look and into the grunge.. torn pants and logger's flannels. /end sarcasm
I like the color of the shorts, perfect man shorts material. I have to ask tho, are his feet painted? You mentioned he didn't like to wear shoes.... and I *think* I see toes.... but I'm not really sure what I'm seeing down below.
I really, really like that. Aside from the colors, I can kind of feel the anxiety of it ( I think the color combo is too close to my favorites for me to associate them with anxiety.) The "almost" aspect of it is appropriate. Almost circles, almost spirals...
It is something that would calm me in my home.... funny that.
