i MISSED the 60s by not being around yet... but maybe i would have liked them.  i miss the 70s through early 90s, i guess... any decade before i had to start pretending to be a responsible adult. (*_*)

i like the mod design and the hippie style that keeps getting recycled still... It's due to the 60s/70s and my parents being hippies and trying to "live off the land", that i got to grow up with DIY and handcrafting all around me my whole life. 
in the 80s i admired punks but was never rebel enough to be one. 

wow i wish there were a mini-swap of this theme.  (anybody else feels the same and wants to do a personal mini-swap, PM me!) ... because of all that pretending to be a responsible adult, i can't really commit to a full swap at the moment.

my parents were more into the hip hop lifestyle of the 80s. my dad was a b-boy (break dancer) and my mom was the typical b-boy groupie. she had the big hair, layered neon slouchy socks, bandannas everywhere, Sassoon jeans! i love graffiti art, oldschool hip hop, and of course, the awful fashion!

as for aquanet, who knew 80s hair would be responsible for putting a whole in the ozone layer?

i could live in hippie skirts for the rest of my life! i went through a hippie phase for a couple years. i had silver from my elbows down. tons of bracelets, rings on every finger, that trademark tiny braid down the side of my face, and of course, bell bottoms. I swear it looked like i was floating everywhere. i hit it big time when my grandmother gave me all her old clothes. she was (and still is) a fashionista, so i had a TDF wardrobe!

I just sent my info. I thought it would be hard to choose which decade but I decided on the 60's. My questionnaire has ended up being huge!

I really think that I was born in the wrong decade.  I am  1950's housewife at heart.  I think I might sign up for this swap but I want to make sure my other obligations are taken care of.
