Shall we call me Negative Nancy? Debbie Downer? A fair description. I think it is time to lighten it up a bit don't you?
An old friend from high school recently posted some photos circa 1989. Freshman year. Madison West High. Wow. I never wanted to believe it. I didn't want to believe that I would someday flip the dusty pages of an old photo album and say "What was I thinking?" I wanted to trust that my fashion choices would stand the test of time. I didn't choose bell bottoms, polyester or horn rimmed glasses. Nope,when I was a teenager, I was all cutting edge.
Perms. Big bangs. Baggy leather jackets, Molly Ringwald. Braces?
As I review these photos it's pretty clear cut. This "look" is DATED. I am very much a cliche of the late 80's.
And it gave me a good laugh. Go ahead, have a chuckle, it's on me.
