My Photo Dare.....

Okay this is so so mortifying- but I have been challenged to post an embarrassing picture from my past- from not one but two of my blogger friends. Suzanne from Emphasis Mine and also Kristen from We are THAT family have some strange need to see all of us embarrass ourselves...so here it is ladies. Oh and I am not a twin- this was taken into a mirror...pretty fancy camera work mom!
This is about 1986. Please take note of the claw-like nails (painted a great shade of mauve by the way), the multi-colored tray of eye shadow, frosted lipstick, and those giant jewel earrings. And the glory of the photo...the hair. Can you smell the Aqua Net? I kinda think I look like I am getting ready to street walking....but actually I was going to a party. I was wearing a short denim mini-skirt and wait for it........white cowboy boots. I made one stylish hooker...I mean teenage girl. Hard to tell....

Too funny! I was a big-haired 80's girl myself! I remember the eye shadow too. Ack!!

Yep big hair, I had it. I didn't use aqua net though it was some other kind of spritz. I cant believe I forgot what it was called, but I can still smell it.

Ohhh...I would have been so jealous of your big hair and blue eye shadow in the eighties! :)

Ok, Where Was I? said...

That is too funny! A hooker. Ha! I too would have been super jealous of your hair b/c mine didn't come close. But I think the nails are my favorite.

This is brilliant! It captures the times perfectly! I can almost smell the clove ciggy and hear the Thompson Twins playing in the background.

Oh, you have the blue eyeshadow too!

Great picture!

I DID use Aqua Net religiously.
