She Had The Big Hair!

I don’t know about you, but we’ve watched nothing but news the last 24 hours.  My heart is in Virginia right now. 

I wasn’t sure I really planned to share these pics–loaded them after a comment about John Hughes movies.   I even pulled some movies out and had a blast remembering those days.  But the fashion! 

We could all probably use the laugh, so I’m going ahead and sharing some old pics of me so we can make fun of that 80’s fashion. <g>

I was 5’10” and weighed 115 lbs.  That’s like 35 lbs less than today!  Wah.  But look at that hair!


I simply can’t believe I wore this.  Unfortunately, there’s proof.  Stirrup pants, the big shirt and those freaky earrings!  love.jpg

The numbered senior shot.  Yes, that is big hair and a real jean dress.  I wore a jean dress for my senior picture.  Dig the expression.  I gotta find the final shot, so you can enjoy that big hair in all it’s frizzed finery.


This looks like I walked off the set of Valley Girl.  Oh, I loved, loved those boots.  I think I cried when they finally died. 


This outfit cracks me up.  I felt so dressy in it and I hated the shirt because it took sooo long to iron.  Then, I felt like I couldn’t move in it.  From the expression on my face, I must have just finished ironing it.  And don’t you ever wonder why we thought shoulder pads were cool? <g>

    OMG. OMG. You must give me your hairdresser’s number. 😉


    What’s even worse is that I would have killed to have had your hair and those boots. And don’t get me started on when I shrunk my stirrup pants…

    They were so bitchin’.

    AT five feet ten inches, those stirrup pants looked awful! I had to wear long shirts to hide the fact that the crotch was somewhere just above my knees!

    Hey, I saw a pic of you then–you did have hair like that.

    I could never get that centered, feathered part like yours, though. 😉

    Dang, sometime I really need to scan and post the picture of me with fishnet hose, piled on top, wiglet 60’s hair, complete with pale lipstick and cat eye glasses. I was so hot. The kids cringe whenever they see it. Those pics of you somehow remind me of “The Breakfast Club” or Olivia Newton Johns.

    LOL. Ah, how fashion changes. I had several similar outfits. Some were much worse. I fell victim to jelly shoes, splatter paint, and painters caps. *shudder*

    Thanks for sharing! =)

    AT least you missed the tail end of the seventies where fashion was not a sense but a scent.

    OMG! The 80’s look! Hehehe! Okay, I’m not going to throw stones here ‘coz I lived those days. Big hair, big clothes…
