I’ve been tasked with finding a classic 1980’s picture of myself. (Don’t worry, it’s for my next scrapbooking weekend — you didn’t miss an assignment!) While I remember the 80’s, with big earrings, bigger hair, and big geometric print blouses — and I can even remember all 3 on myself at once! — I have yet to find the photographic proof.
In the meantime, here are a few shots from 32+ years ago:
At the age of 15, I was still receiving stuffed animals for every gift-giving occasion. Apparently my mother thought I would want a mama porpoise with a baby porpoise inside her velcroed (Velcro‘d?) belly. I think it’s obvious that I was much more pleased with the t-shirt from my sister’s university.
If you look carefully in the background, you’ll see some leftovers from the 1970’s as well. The ugly sculpted avocado green carpet is a prime example. It’s hard to tell, but there is also a large macramé plant hanger in the distant doorway.
There might be a picture of me with lavender-colored leg warmers… somewhere…
I’ll have to keep looking.
