This post is a continuation to My Clothes History through Photos and Diary (1964-1978).
In January 2020, I was busy getting rid of some clothes that didn't fit and trying to decide what to do with them. None needed to be tossed, but should be donated. My decision was made to photograph the items I wouldn't keep because they all had memories attached to them. It is indeed my history. I remember where and when I bought them where I wore them. I frequently bought certain labels, they were Talbots, Liz Claiborne, and Jones New York. In 1979 I was working at the Veterans Affairs building in DC, 2 blocks from the White House. Naturally, I wanted to be stylish and there were plenty of stores in which to shop during lunch. I loved the Garfinckel's, the Hecht Co., Woodward & Lothrop, Lord and Taylor, and Talbots stores.
I realize I have shared a lot in this post, but it is for my own benefit and memory. However, I thought somebody would get a kick out of some styles we all wore. Not only do the clothes elicit a memory, but the memory also brings thoughts to working in DC, both at the Veterans Affairs and the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR).
