Dave!Looking at old photos from the 1960's & 70's is always guaranteed fun times because of the insane mainstream fashions that were prevalent in the day. There wasn't a color or pattern too crazy to be used, and it's only now that we can look back and say "What the fuck was everybody thinking?

Here's just a few examples of the awesome couture du jour from my childhood...

Pretty deranged, right?


More and more while watching Project Runway I feel as though the stuff I was wearing back then was actually more fashion-forward than the ridiculous shit than some of the contestants seem to come up with. Last night's "Stilts Challenge" was no exception...

Project Runway Fashion!

And then there are times while watching the show that I seriously think that Heidi Klum should just take out a gun and shoot the "designers" for the sake of all humanity. I mean, I'm no fashion expert, but holy shit...

    You were so cute that I just want to give young Dave a plate of cookies and milk.

    Dude. You were such a cute kid!
    And I have not seen ONE Project Runway this season! I suck. But apparently, I am not missing much!

    RE Project Runway: Who TF thought it was a good idea to do a challenge which included STILTS? They are always going on about how it is supposed to be wearable fashion, and not costume, so how does this relate in any way to normal people clothes? In this case I don’t blame the designers, I blame Heidi and Friends, for coming up with a crap challenge.

    The Dave pics totally kick the Project Runway crowd.

    I used to work at the Gap with one of the designers. (I didn’t know he was in fashion school because well…he didn’t dress all that great. I just thought it was trying–and failing–to be hipsterish.)
