I’m watching an episode of the Cosby Show as I type this. Rudy Huxtable is just starting the 6th grade and is desperate to grow breasts.

In an attempt to “groom the girls”, Rudy enlists one of her friends to order some type of ointment to speed up the process. But that’s not the point of this post.

As her friend is leaving the Huxtable residence, I caught a glimpse of her shoes. The eternally popular Converse Chuck Taylors. I remember I had a pair back in the day and now they’re “back”, although some would argue that they never really left.

They don’t really fit my fashion style now like they did back then. But it’s nice to see some proof of trends I was involved with coming full circle again.

For those of you interested, this particular episode, from Season 7, first aired Thursday September 20, 1990.
