Okay, are you done staring now? Eyes back in your head people. (How fitting is it that I chose to post this on Friday the 13th?)
*I'm guessing this was my fifth grade photo and that I was about 12. I'm assuming that because of the fact that my teeth are too big for my mouth and my nose has yet to grow into my face, which is the typical look of most twelve year olds. Tweens are easy to spot that way, kinda like guessing the age of a tree by counting the rings.
*The hair: permed on top, straight and halfway to my butt in the back. Nice, huh? The reason it looked this way (other than the fact that this was 1986 and hairstyles such as this were totally bangin') was because my dad wouldn't let me cut it. He was of the opinion that women should have long hair, that it was more feminine. Today, of course I look at this photo and feminine is not the first word to come to mind.
*If you look closely, you can see that my shirt has shoulder pads. Awesome. I remember I used to wear this with shorts. Also, awesome.
*I'm wearing a tank top under my shirt (blouse?) because I was starting to develop boobies and I was scared to get my first bra. I thought I could just get away with a tank top. This little theory though, was proven wrong when a boy told me I needed to wear a bra. Oddly enough, he didn't tell me I needed to do something about my hair.*Entire outfit most likely purchased at Zayre.
