Matching Outfits

Go Fish

“It was 1965 and Mom was with her 3 kerchiefed daughters: teenager Cindy, toddler Julie in her arms and Suzy, age four. Location: Tuscola, Illinois.”

Maroon 5

“My mother must have ransacked the Sears catalog to purchase these Sears Tuff Skins maroon denim outfits (with white top-stitching) for all five of us kids. She got matching outfits for herself and Dad, who aren’t in the photo. Then we all went to Six Flags Over Georgia, where we were mistaken for – on multiple occasions – either a gospel group or a a country music band. As the eldest child (12) and only girl…I was completely mortified and spent most of the day dragging 20 feet behind my family. Flash forward 44 years and it is now my brothers’ and my most “precious” (and totally hilarious) memory! Embrace the awkward!”

Personal Best

“My family posed for this gem in December 1993. I was 10; my brothers were 8 and 13. My mother loved themed portraits and says now in her defense, ‘Track suits were really hot back then. Everyone wore them. People wore them to work.’ I guess everyone worked as sleazy personal trainers from the ’80s. Now I bust these fancy outfits out for costume parties and bar crawls.”

Mohawk Rebellion

“This photo was taken in my backyard, shortly after my family marched in the town’s tri-centennial parade. Their costumes were on loan from the Westford Historical Society. My costume was of my own devising.”

Pretty In Plaid

“I ordered my Great Dane, Augie a plaid shirt for fall and I loved it so much that I tried to recreate the look for myself. I decided in my next life I’m coming back as my dog.”
