    What the late 1960s really looked like

    More from Bellydancer

    Chicago 1967


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Growing up, Bellydancer's mother only owned clothing that was a hand-me down, a donation or handmade. So, when she settled into her life in Chicago, she loved to shop and made sure her kids wore the latest fashions. At 5 years old, Bellydancer, wore a matching coat and hat. "She always dressed me very well and loved to shop for bargains and deals," she says. "If I had to guess - I bet she saved for months to buy it. She had great taste."
    - PM91, CNN iReport producer

    The first picture was taken around 1967 - my favorite ensemble at age 5. That coat and hat made me feel like a model.

    The second photo was taken around 1965. Our first family portrait. My mom was a classy dresser. She always was stylish and modern but never wore anything too revealing. My father,as I recall, always dressed well too.
