The Crazy Suburban Mom: A Retro Tuesday to mortify you kids...

A Retro Tuesday to mortify you kids...

I've passed this one by on more then one Retro Tuesday because it's just so silly.  But this morning I thought to myself, why not?  I've certainly put ridiculous things here before.


I know it sounds normal enough...

Like something you might like to wear  on a beach or to the grocery store.  But think again because these are the Stepford hats from Hell...


I don't actually think these are useless.  I could totally mortify my kid all year with these puppies. 

First day of school, bus stop.


Same hat, second day with blackend tooth


Back to school night..


The first conference...


And why yes, those are feathers from a feather duster since you asked..


Because nothing says classy like attaching a two foot tall florescent green feather duster to the top of a straw hat with a huge plastic diamond.  


Bringing in cupcakes...


Now this one, I would be afraid of.


Too many chances for oddly bent fingers, if you catch my drift.

Got a retro post and want to link to my blog?

Email me and I'll put your link right  here.

Just when my kids thought I couldn't get any more embarrassing! I must have ALL of these hats!

Lol! I can see some mothers wearing these around their kids....IN PUBLIC. Too funny.

SO tempting! but really I think this might be a fun project to do with the kids, and have a silly hat parade? between me and my 2 neighbors there are 12 kids between the ages of 10 and 18months. if we do it when I get back from my trip I'll send you some pics!

Tracy, where did you find this? Those hats are just incredibly, wonderfully awful - I love it!

I kind of like the picnic dishes can be adapted into a Mad Tea Party theme...which makes me wonder which pills the people on the mag's staff were taking.

One pill makes you larger,
One pill makes you small,
and the ones that the Managing Editor gives youuu
Makes you wear a chicken hat for no reason at alll
Go ask Alice
She'll tell you to subscribe to McCall's!
