What a Feeling

September 18, 2008 - Cindy Votruba
I was flipping through the Sears sale flyer this week and I noticed that apparently legwarmers are making a comeback. Yes, legwarmers from $10 to $14 were advertised. Wow, that sure brings me back.

It was the early ‘80s when Jennifer Beals graced the movie screen in “Flashdance” with her off the shoulder sleeveless sweatshirt, leotard, headband and yes, legwarmers. I just had to have a pair. I wasn’t a dancer by any means. It just looked like something cool I wanted to wear. I probably used that same line of reasoning for why I wanted a pair of tan suede ankle boots, a couple of Forenza t-shirts and the panda bear blouse with the tails in the back topped with a blue shaker knit sweater. Well, I thought I was stylin’.

The only pair of legwarmers I was able to find was this black pair at some store. I maybe wore them a few times. But I remember I time that I pulled the legwarmers all the way up my leg to go haul brush in the backyard. I know that wasn’t the way you’re supposed to wear legwarmers, but they sure as heck kept my legs warm!

So here we are in 2008 and legwarmers seem to be back in style. But now, I’m not one to follow fashion trends. I wear clothes that probably went out of style five years ago. But darn it, they’re cool to me.
