25 Things you guys said about me - #3

More than one person commented on my wardrobe back in high school. Yes I wore Gerbois jeans and yes I loved bright, big rugby shirts and most of them came from the J Crew catalog. Here are some pics showing off my awesomeness from more than 15 years ago. This is also in honor of the STOMP we had last week end. GO BULLDOGS

loved this shirt - had a blue version of it too. In fact I wore this one well into college.

Ary + KT = TLA
nothing more to say about his one

I actually still own this rugby shirt. I take it with me to outdoor concerts. I just do. I loved that hat but I think Reuben stole it. I believe this picture was at one of the famous stomps.

Green was my favorite color - thus this became one of my favoirte shirts. These girls are still my home girls. Wendy - the queen of the slopes and the river, CJane - well you know her, and Amber - mother of 7 (triplets and twins).

Hanging on the heaters - they don't exist anymore. I made these "boxers" in clothing with Mrs. Price. Loved them. I used to sit on these heaters with Melinda and as boys walked by we would try to decide if they were wearing boxers and butt huggers (sometimes we called them tighty whiteies). Ah good times.

I remember getting this rugby shirt for Christmas and wearing it the first day back and at least three other people had the same shirt that day.

I couldn't find a picture of me wearing my Gerbois jeans so I found this one of BJ's girlfriend - you know, Keri N.

Katy and Katie or Katie times two or Katie squared

I stole this one from my brother's closet. Loved it too.

Can't really tell but it is polo - the little guy on the horse is cut off.

So that post should have addressed the following comments:

  1. Before Katy left on a 2 year mission she put all of her precious clothing (rugbys) in a box with a LOCK on it so little sister Ann Dee could not wear them while she was away. Actually I locked up my CDs - I trusted my siblings with my clothing but not my CDs.
  2. Remember in the 90's the cool pants were Geurbois (I don't remember how it is spelled) you know the pants I am talking about, they had the white label on the front zipper. Anyway, they had a skinny long pocket in the leg by the knee. Katy used that pocket to hold feminine hygiene products. This is true - I loved to keep tampons in those pockets and I loved to make boys feel dumb by trying to get them to guess what I kept in there.
  3. BTW, I somehow broke the lock or something because while Katy was on her mission she saw a picture of Tamara Pace (Kim's sister) wearing one of her precious rugbys. Oh the horror . . . This was actually in high school - Kim had taken one of my shirts from my closet and one day at school I saw Tam Pace (an older and cooler girl) wearing my rugby. Boy did Ann Dee feel the pain and probably Kim too.
  4. Also, Katy kept J Crew stock holders very happy in the 1990s. My mom thought it was much easier to order over the phone than to get out and shop. Mostly J Crew but sometimes Eddie Bauer - I still keep their stock holders very happy.

Oh man is that hilarious. I loved rugby shirts in middle school but mine were all from Structure. That's right, they were men's rugbies. Awesome. Might help explain why I was teased mercilessly in middle school, and one girl even said "You would be popular if you dressed better." Nice.

Wow. Thanks for the good laughs Katy. Not sure there ever was such a queen of rugby's as you. Although I owned my fare share too.
Why in the h&#$ did I always wear a shirt tied around my waist?!? ALWAYS!
Loving Megan Snarr's facial expression on the "heaters" picture. (Makes me want to watch some footage of it all)!
You're the BEST.

Keri N!!! I totally remember her--her cousins lived in my ward.

And I was all about the rugbys too, until I figured out how terrible they really made me look.

It's "Girbaud," but apparently all I had were baggy light blue jeans to pair with a bizarre flannel shirt. Great looks from all of us ;)

Nice work especially from Liz with the carnival stripes on those shorts with the shirt tucked in.

Here's a look at your "accessory" jeans:

Spencer - thanks for the correct spelling and the link!
