Remember these?

So when I was a little girl, back on West 67th street, we used to play in "rompers".  Well, my mom called them that, not sure if that's an official name.  They were one piece, elastic at the waist, and you tied them at the shoulders.  This look was quite fashionable, and if you look closely, you will see that it could also be worn with a nice white undershirt!!  Seriously...

Yes... here I am in all my glory.  The year was 1961 and the backyard was the place to be... bricks? and all.

Wow ... a few years later and we are still looking sharp in our "rompers"... matching ones... could this get any worse?   That is my sister, Frankie on the left, and yes, me on the right!  I have absolutely no idea who that is in the middle!  Will you look at the glasses... what was my mother thinking?  At least we don't have on undershirts!  So, I am shopping recently at Target, and I come across this little item.  I can't resist and I buy it for Molly.
                  She wears it well, don't you think??  
What do you remember wearing that has come back to haunt you?
