    Although I never would have worn any of this back in the day, I thank God that such a style existed and that I got to grow up with that all around me.

    Calling those things a vest is really a stretch. They’re more like giant potholders with bathing suit straps.

    I love the hats because they show a crocheter who just couldn’t stop.

    Wow, yeah they are potholder dork targets…”Hey over here! Throw something at me!!!!”

    Acutally, when i first read the title of this post, i thought it said Dorky Crockett….

    And since have had the following song stuck in my head, with the chorus as Dorky Crockett instead of Davey….join me in my misery….http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=01rNP89pSyk

    oh yeah…i have had that song stuck in my head on a constant loop since childhood…the lyrics change often, depending on my mood and present situation…:)

    I seriously believe those vests got spontaneously invented by someone who accidently crocheted too large pottholders. Looks like another great fashion idea for Lady Gaga to me.
