Me too! Mine are very retro, with bell bottoms and faded denim. Below the knees they are covered in cutwork embroidery. I LOVE THEM!! I must've been born in the wrong decade. (The seventies were ending when I was born!)
I have three pieces of clothing that I keep in sight. One is a dress, I was hoping to wear it to my brother's wedding at the end of September but it doesn't look like I'm going to make it [I'd have to lose about 30 more pounds in less than 3 months now!], but I still keep it out as motivation. I also have a bikini that I'd love to wear again, and a pair of size 4 jeans that I can only wear at my goal weight.
For another short term goal, I have this beautiful Ren Faire-esque dress that I want to be able to wear by early fall/the end of the Ren Faire season. I bought it a couple years ago, I could fit into it then with a very tight corset but I want to be able to wear it with no assistance!

My favorite sleeveless black and white dress, it fits snuggly. I could wear it last year this time, but I have "extra stuff" this year. Its ironed and hanging in my closet where I can see it. I look ok in it in a seamless girdle, but I'd rather not wear one. *sigh* I hope I get to wear it before summers end.
I have a couple of skirts that I made with African fabrics. They are unique and I would love to show them off. But they are made for a much smaller me. "Rewards" for accomplishing my goals...

Shorts! I just started wearing Bermuda length shorts about a month ago and before that I haven't worn shorts since the 5th grade. I am motivated to look good in a pair of "normal" shorts.

I have 2 pairs of jeans that I'd love to fit into. That is my first goal....fit into those jeans, not sure what weight that will take.

Because I've been steadily losing weight along the way, I had closets full of clothes to get into. But now, I'm into those! So the first of June, I was at a great consignment shop & bought a BEAUTIFUL skirt that was probably 2 -3 sizes too small that I'm using as my "motivation" piece of clothing. I'm getting really close to fitting in that skirt! Oh yeah!!!
