JUNE 15–JEAN BLUE JEANS and JEAN SPEEGLE HOWARD, whose new memoir, “What Happened,” was published on June 15, are known as two of the most influential women of the 21st century.
Their friendship and influence has long been recognized in fashion, where their influence has stretched from jeans to sneakers.
They were among the first celebrities to wear jeans on a date, and they became a symbol of the American dream of working class girls getting a good-paying job in the 1950s and 1960s.
The pair is now in the midst of their third book.
But for decades, the two women have remained closely connected and have often been seen together.
They met through mutual friends, a couple of whom were musicians.
Now, the pair are reuniting to share their life story in a new book, “Why We Love These Shoes.”
Here are 10 things to know about these legendary pair.
JEANNET BLUE Howard and Howard’s friendship began in the 1960s, when Howard was a high school student in Florida and Howards was a college student in Michigan.
The two became close friends and became friends as students at different colleges.
But their friendship never grew beyond that.
Howards remembers the first time she met Howard in 1967 at a party at the University of Southern California.
They quickly bonded and started hanging out at the party.
Howard recalls, “We became a little bit of a couple.”
They became best friends at Yale University in 1969.
Howell and Howison were roommates in the school’s dorms.
Their first meeting came in 1972, when the pair were freshmen in high school.
Howells recalls, “‘Hey, how are you doing?
And how he answered, “You know, I’m not having a great time.
In 1973, Howells became the first female director of a major fashion brand, the Gap.
The Gap was a major retailer and clothing brand in the early 1960s and early 1970s, and Howells was the only female director.
But Howells and Howitzer continued to work together on projects together.
“But they weren’t necessarily a couple, because we had such a great friendship. “
They had so much creative freedom, because they were both designers,” Howells said.
“But they weren’t necessarily a couple, because we had such a great friendship.
And I remember how it all turned out.”
They continued to have a close relationship in the 1980s.
How and Howell have been friends since the early 1980s, but Howells says that their friendship began to change when she took a job as a manager at Gap.
She recalls, When I first got the job, it was all about a relationship with someone.
And then I was going to the mall to buy something and they told me to call them, ‘Hi, I got a deal for you.
You want to go on a shopping spree for me?
Go ahead, I’ll call them back.’
” So I was like, “No, no, no.
I’m never going to do that again.
They started dating in the late 1980s when they both worked at Gap and Howels started working as a store manager.
How the two met in their mid-20s, the year they began dating.
How was dating?
She remembers, I was working in a store in the mall in Florida, so I came across a couple sitting in the car with their daughters and we sat down.
I thought, ‘I gotta do something to try and find out if they’re having a real relationship.’
And then they got into a discussion about their dating lives.
And she was like: ‘Do you think I’m having a relationship?
Or do you think they’re just having fun with each other?’
And I was really confused by that because I was thinking, ‘Oh, I don’t know, maybe they’re actually dating.
But I don’ know what they are doing.’
But I knew they were friends and it was just a matter of time before they would get married.
How would they get married?
How would it work?
How do they know they’d be married?
That’s how they met, and that’s how their relationship was.
How did they find out they were married?
Did they tell anyone?
How did that affect them?
The first time I met them, we were driving to work.
And it turned out that I had a boyfriend and my mom was at work.
I was just like, ‘What am I doing?
Why am I here?’
And then she got on the phone and told me that she’d called my dad to see if I could go to his house.
I called my mom, and my dad called my sister and my brother
