So, I saw a woman wearing leg warmers the other day. I think they may be back in fashion (perhaps they never left?) as she looked pretty hip. Hmmmm, I'll check with Ambika, she'll know. After seeing her my mind went 2 places. First, to the 3 pairs of leg warmers I had as a kid. I must have been 9 or 10. I never had the courage to wear them, but I definitely liked having them and thinking about wearing them.
Next my mind went to my childhood Cabbage Patch Kid - Phoebe Arabella. I was recently reunited with her when I went searching for my Minny Mouse hat from Disney Land. My oldest is obsessed with Disney Land, ever since her cousin went, and *had* to see that hat. I found it and I found Phoebe. Like all the dolls my mom gave us, this one came with a complete wardrobe, designed and made by her. Wouldn't you know, Phoebe had her own set of leg warmers. With a matching knit mini skirt and shirt, of course.
No, the leg warmer clad woman didn't resemble a Cabbage Patch Kid, but it seems it didn't really matter. My mind went there anyway.
If you're wondering, yes, there are plenty of other *gems* in Phoebe's wardrobe. I could be talked into posting a few more pictures.
