Now this is a #tbt: TV producer Lauren Blackwell (@lauren90046) recalls her grandparents talking about the “La-Di-Da” parties they threw in the 1950s when they were strapped for cash. Her grandparents' families were hit hard in the Great Depression. “[The parties] were nights to get dressed up and parade around each other’s houses like the hoity-toity,” she wrote in her iReport. “The requirement for each of these parties was that no money could be spent on any of the outfits, only items already owned and materials found at home were allowed,” she said. Her grandmother’s gown is made from an altered burlap curtain, and her grandfather is wearing a tuxedo jacket and swim trunks. Were your grandparents ahead of their time?
