If I were to describe my style, ‘retro’ would not be the first thing to come to mind. I don’t think I’m ‘retro’ at all. But, given the definition of retro- “modeled on something from the past such as a style of fashion or music”- I think I fit the category!
I am the proud owner of a shirt that once belonged to my Dad - circa late 70’s. I found the shirt in my Mom’s sewing room in a pile waiting to be donated or re-purposed. I’m not really sure what attracted me to the shirt- the colors in the plaid, or the fact it was from the Gap, or maybe because it looked like it might fit me (as I type this I think that might not be something to own up to- my dad and I wearing the same size? Yikes!). Whatever the reason, I grabbed it. I’ve worn it. And, I really like it!
Guess this give a whole new meaning to recycling clothing! Thanks for the shirt Dad!
