Sentence: When Wendy started wearing her Mom's bell bottom pants, mini skirts and Indian guru patterned shirts, she realized she had hit the Demoderlode of high fashion. What worked for her Mom thirty to forty years before had all of a sudden become trendy, de riguer and happening now. Luckily they were the same size and even her cool folks thought she suited the swinging sixty looks. Thank Goodness, her Mom never threw anything out!
