The year 1959


Wonder where my parents got inspiration for some of the corny outfits I had to wear during the 1960s.  Maybe from the below video? Gotta Love the Gingham dress!! At least it has some Red in it which was and still is one of my favorite colors. LOL!!

My Dad had a Chevy Impala but it was from the 1960s. However since I am showcasing my Birth Year 1959 let’s see a Vintage car  from that year.

    Love the videos! The music of the fifties and early sixties has always been a favorite of mine. The Platters featuring The phenomenal Tony Williams! The Coasters and The Drifters! Throw all of that into a 1959 red Chevy convertible and Yahoo! 👍👍

    1. Thanks!! Me too!! I Love that Chevy car! Especially the Red Color! Wow!! Wish I had it even though I no longer drive! Heck! I’d hire a chauffeur just so I could show off me and the car all over New York!! LOL!! 😀

    1. Now that is one popular Chevy!! Getting lots of excellent fun feedback on the wondrous Red Chevy!! Once I saw it was from 1959 and a Red Chevy I had to include it in my salute to my Birth Year!!

    1. Thanks! I feel the same about the fashions. They are a bit too corny and overboard for my taste. Like living Barbie dolls. Barbie was also born in 1959 but at No point did I want to look like her! LOL!! I have pictures of my Mom from the late 1950s after she and my Dad married and My Mom was always tastefully and fashionably dressed. My Mom possessed elegance and style. I will feature My Mom Mable Palmer in a future blog post.

  2. My mom was into gingham, too, so I get it. In my hometown there was only one major department store, therefore, in the fall, when school began, so many people were wearing the same clothes . . . plus the “back-to-school-clothes” were exponentially too warm for the climate where we lived. You have stirred up super fun memories.

    1. Actually I really Loved that dress. I remember being so angry when playing in our backyard a bird had the nerve and audacity to take a crap on my dress. I had to go inside the house to change! Bad bird!! LOL!! However now you won’t find any gingham in my closet. Back then my Dad picked out my clothes. Since I was 18 I did all the choosing. I recall back in the 80s when I was in my 20s my Dad asked me if I was a Ninja since most of my clothing was Black!! Ha! Ha!! 😀 🙂

      One of my writer personas is as the Nubian Ninja but my fashion sense now includes more colors in my wardrobe.

    1. I really enjoyed looking up what songs, TV shows, fashions and cars were popular during my birth year. I’m gonna do it again for my brother Stephen who was born in 1961. Just putting your birth year into YouTube or Google and one can find some fascinating information.
