    A cellphone! Only the rich kids had them.

    In middle school I remember the big thing was Nike Airs and Starter Jackets with your favorite team. Mine was the Charlotte Hornets, only because I liked the colors. lol

    Definitely saddle shoes- in blue and white! I bucked the trend and got a lot of teasing as a result; not a problem. Jeans were worn only for mucking out a barn, if you had one.[​IMG]

    Must have guys were those who had cute little sports cars, or were jocks . Had a bad crush on one guy: drop-dead gorgeous, friendly, wealthy family, but not geared to academics.[​IMG] Went out with his younger brother a couple of times on the off-chance that I might see older brother.[​IMG]

    Those were not the best years of my life, but still have many good memories.[​IMG]

    Doc Martens (why? I have no idea.) and Abercrombie anything. That was as high fashion as we got.

    I remember thinking I was hot stuff because I wore clothing from Express... the nearest store was about 45 minutes away. That's dedication to fashion.

    [​IMG]

    I went back home recently and everyone's carrying Coach and LV, and wearing true religions and sevens... too weird. Oh, and hometown has its very own Express store now.

    DF. if you''re trying to find out how old we all are, why not just ask outright? [​IMG]

    Funny you should bring this up, because a co-worker and I were talking just this afternoon about how we used to wear Love perfume (pre-baby soft for me!) in high school.

    Beside that:

    Jordache and Levis jeans
    Candies and earth shoes
    mini skirts or granny dresses

    I grew up in a really rural area and our high school was very far away (my bus ride was over an hour long). Anyway, we rural kids considered the kids from town to be rich, which is sort of funny now. The rich kids wore Doc Martens and carried Dooney & Burke purses. Oh, and Guess jeans, those were popular. Being in the midwest, I think we were WAY behind the times, becuase I seem to remember a lot of big bangs and I graduated from high school in ''99, haha.

    Oo, and I just remembered...there were LOTS of women with dark lipliner and lighter lipstick...I think that was a nod to Beverly Hills 90210

    I was never into anything fashionalbe (some things never change)--I thought my marching band uniform was cool.

    hmmmm I don''t recall as I never paid any attention to it.
    I always wore blue jeans and black or blue t-shirts same thing I wear today.
    In the winter I wore a camo coat, then a black jean jacket, I still wear both every once in a while these days.
    The camo coat is pretty much a rag but the black coat is still in good shape.

    wow, I must be a lot older than the rest of you guys - we couldn''t even wear jeans to school! It was only in my junior year were we allowed to wear pants, with our behinds covered by a long top. And it had to be matching!! Our dress hems had to be no shorter than 3 inches above our knees. Many of the girls made their own clothing, it was hard to find fashionable things that fell into the school dress code. So the halls were awash in double knit pantsuits. GAG. This was a public school just outside Houston. We did wear pants and jeans to school games and such. And we really enjoyed that freedom, ha ha!

    I do remember high waisted pants, nylon "Nik Nik" shirts, cork wedge sandals, long straight hair, chunky heel shoes, wide flare legs pants, peasant blouses.

    Do I dare say I graduated high school in 1973 !!

    I graduated in '98. The COOL thing to have was a great truck. (yes, another midwesterner!) Vehicles were such a big deal, our prom premiere was actually outside! We drove down the hill around the school so everyone could admire the beauties. Then, we had valets that helped us out and drove our vehicles off to "oohs" and "aahs". BUT, none of them were less than 5 years old. Most of them were jacked up with big mud tires! In this neck of the woods, mom and dad NEVER buy you a car.

    Vaguely remember the dark lipliner/light lipstick thing. Lots of flannel, jeans and boots. We didn't even have a "popular" group. With only a hundred kids in the school, you're all friends.


    ETA- I just remembered the other "thing" at my high school. Our Science teacher (yes, we had ONE. He taught everything from Earth Science to Anatomy to Physics) had loads of VHS tapes. It was the job of all to confiscate the tapes and rerecord stuff. Sometimes it was really INAPPROPRIATE, if you know what I mean. But, we were also good for music videos. There is one that is still lasting at the school (I know because my sis just graduated) It's a video of "Call Me Al". We watched it everyday at lunch time. People frequented the halls singing, "Na na na na. Na nana na na na. Na na na na."

    I don''t know if there were any MUST HAVE''s when I went to school, we all wore a uniform so you couldn''t get dressed up during the week and on the weekends it was fairly cool to get your clothes from City Beach, stuff like billabong, roxy etc.

    I also wore Candies mules and Roots earthshoes, and I had my share of micro mini''s. When I went to the Roxy and The Troubador and The Rainbow I wore North Beach Leather strapless leather mini'' dresses and stilettos, or their mini skirts and bustiers. Sometimes I even wore fishnets. A couple of girls and I used to go and hang out in the early 80''s, when Ratt and Motley Crue and Great White were starting out. I used a ton of spray to get that big hair on a girl in a rock video look, and lots of black eyeliner, frosty pink lipstick or red lipstick. I wore earrings that looked like feathers made out of metal or huge hoops. It was a kind of trashy look but still we thought it looked great! Met a couple of rock stars that way![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    My gosh - I wore that stuff when I was in junior high! I have the Olan Mills pictures to prove it (black leather mini and white bustier). I was 14. I can't believe my parents let me out of the house like that.
