As I was driving into work, I was thinking about my early preppy days. When I was in college I was a district officer in Circle K (service org sponsered by Kiwanis). One summer I went to a convention and met some really super guys from Babson College. I had never heard of Babson College, but Lisa Birnbach refers to it as one of the preppiest colleges in TOPH. I had the guys' attention the entire week. They treated me like a queen. It must have been the Southern accent or maybe it was the preppy attire, or maybe they were trying to figure out my add-a-bead. I never heard from them again. That led me to reminiscence about preppy items from the past that are not around anymore. Do you remember Peter Popovich skirts? If not, they were printed skirts in colors such as kelly green and cornflower blue and were worn with coordinating tees or Tanner blouses. They were worn with Tretorns that had the same color as the skirt on the side. Malia sundresses - I lived in mine during the summers. I still have most of my Dottie Smith costume jewelry. A few years ago, I threw away all of my belt strips that I used with my Dottie Smith belt buckles. I had whales, frogs, a train and apple belt buckles and strips in every color and pattern. Do you remember Dean's sweaters? I had several cardigans. I don't think they exist anymore. I still have my add-a-bead necklace. I wear it occaisionally. Garland sweaters - I had several - cardigans and crews. A popular ensemble was a grey wool skirt, pink buttondown oxford, navy crewneck sweater, add-a-bead, navy cable knee socks and Bass weejuns or navy wool skirt, light blue buttondown oxford and kelly green crewneck sweater, etc. Later came the wool shorts. I still have a pair of grey wool short from Talbots. I'm waiting on them to come back in style. We went to the Pappagallo Shop every week. Popular mail order shops were The Talbots (of course), LL Bean (of course) and The Tog Shop. I think Appleseed's have bought The Tog Shop. Let's not forget Carroll Reed. I still have several boiled wool jackets that I bought at Carroll Reed. They were a sister company to Eagle's Eye. I still have Eagle's Eye in my closet. I have a sister that is 13 years younger than me. She was always a miniature version of me. Our parents dressed her preppy also. I didn't intend on writing a book. Maybe this will bring back memories for many of you.

I loved Eagle's Eye. I used to have bunch of EE stuff, back in the days when you had to take a bus trip to Boaz AL to go to a real outlet.

My add a beads all have dents in them. I think I tossed them in the jewelry box one too many times.

I used to buy a lot of Eagle's Eye in Boaz also. It is about one hour from where I live. There's not much there anymore. Polo and three Bon Worth outlets.

Yes that was a trip down memory lane! And I had several Malia sundresses and loved them. Hadn't thought about those in years! And I have no idea what happened to them either. I think a friend from college borrowed one and I never got it back. :(

Oh, I remember Deans sweaters! I had a beloved hunter green Dean's fair isle pullover that my roommate threw in the hot wash with her jeans- the green ran all over the yoke,the sweater shrunk, and I cried.

Our lime green and pink skirts were all Lillys then-

thanks for the memories!

Oh my goodness! I feel that we probably grew up in the same town. I worked at the Pappagallo Shop and had every single Bermuda purse cover they owned - along with belts, buckles, earrings, shoes. I loved the Deans sweaters, the kilts, and the Malia sundresses. I happened along to this blog because I pulled one of my long Malia's out to loan to a friend for a 70's party! I tried it on and lo and behold - it still fits! I am wearing it to a little birthday party for a friend who is just now turning 40 so she may or may not know about them! It will be a fun story though. Thanks for sharing your wardrobe with us.
