Tough on the Outside...

A little while ago, capello posted her jeans-tucked-into-socks cool-80s look and, yes, I have evidence of that fashion era myself! I finally got this scanned so I can share it with you. This is my ultra-cool self at age 20! I looked so "bad" with my vertical hair, and can you believe this is how I looked when my hubby fell for me (how could he resist??)? This pink t-shirt is not typical though - I usually wore some shade of black. Not the parents' favorite phase, right, Mom? Whenever I see spikey-haired, pierced, tattooed, tough-looking young people, I remember how uncertain I felt at this age and I know that they are probably just as confused and lonely as I was then.

Oh you were COOL 80's. I was naff 80's (batwing sweaters - I ask you) but luckily little photographic evidence survives...

Oh, this brings back memories! Hours with the curling iron and hairspray trying to get my bangs as puffy as my shoulder pads! hahahahaha
Oh and the special fold in the jean cuffs to make them super tight at the ankles.
Thanks for reminding me.
