Some people are meant to shine.

Rock on girl!
This girl is awesome!
it’s not a pad or a tear folks! it is the ‘cotton crotch’ built into the panty hose. This card is sold in stores and it has her comment on the card about it.
Too cute! BTW that’s just a tear in her panty hose.
Its more likely to be a tear in the tights. If it was a pad it be under the tights and less noticeable because of the colour of the tights over it.
This photo. All these pics on AFP crack me up, but this one I actually clicked-on. It just grabbed my attention. I love how it went from American Apparel to “I thought it was me” to thinking that I really like this photo for 2010 toooooo …what’s that white thing?
Meant to shine. Classic. Rock on girl!
is that her pad showing?
I’m glad I’m not the only one who noticed the maxi-pad in this photo…But I think the purple spandex really carries it well.
Just another summer Saturday night at the Jersey Shore. (Yes, this is where you start fist pumping.)
Shine, you crazy diamond, shine.
I had that same dance outfit when I was 7 years old!!! Crazy!!!! I still have and my daughter now likes to wear it.
Oh wow…I’ve been dancing for 17 years (14 of them as a kid, 3 as an adult), and even in my most awkward years, none of my photos looked nearly this bad, but that may have been because it was the 90s by that time and my mom used to practically rip my glasses off my face before my recital photos were taken. For some reason, she thought it was funny to make me take them off before I could find the studio where the individual photos were being taken so I could move around blindly…for shame mom!
But wow, she’s got some awesome Jazz hands…my male Hip Hop teacher likes to tell us to use “Jazz Hands” alot…perhaps she inspired him? LOL!!
These are jazz hands…THESE are spirit fingers!
Hey, it’s Blossom!

This is my new avatar.
Is that her panty liner sticking out??
Are those crotchless tights?
Time out people! Can we just look for a second at the groin region…. on the right side it looks like some liner is showing or something…AWKWARD!
What is that on the inside of her right leg?
LOL…..I was thinking the same thing ! It looks like a sanitary napkin….LOL
Yes it does, maybe it’s the lining in her tights though.
OMG that was the first thing I noticed too. It’s the flap that attaches to the underwear, only in her case, it’s not attached.
I can’t believe I had to read through SO many comments to finally read one about this … totally the most noticeably awkward part about the photo everyone!!
That’s the very first think my eye went to in this pic. It sure does look like a maxi pad “wing”. LOL
that’s the FIRST thing i noticed too…
I don’t think ‘wings’ had yet to be invented in the 80s.
I cant beleive how many comments about pads i had to read through. anyone who has done tap or ballet dance will know its a part of the stockings, often people dont wear undies when wearing stockings to theres a little light coloured piece of cotton sewen in. when i did competition aerobics it used to sneak out all the time. its not a pad guys, use your brain. if you look closely you will see its circular, not rectangular
Let’s hope she didn’t cute herself shaving.
Oh God, I just spit my drink through my nose!
thank God I wasn’t the only one to notice that!
I choked on my lunch!
THANK YOU! I was really hoping someone else said it so I didn’t have to!
The photographer didn’t NOTICE that? It’s the first thing our respective eyes fell on, yet the photographer somehow didn’t see it?
I had to read the comments JUST so I could see if someone else noticed this–I was definitely going to say something if not. It DOES look like her pad slipped!
It’s the “panty” part of her pantyhose. It looks like they were on inside-out…so it REALLY stands out! And the photographer said nothing…for shame
As a photographer who’s done many photos like this I can tell you that it’s not unthinkable to miss this as we’re so trained to focus on the face and the hands. Also I would hate to tell a 10-11 year old girl, “Your um pantyhose needs to be adjusted.”
The glasses really aren’t her fault at all. In the 80s we had such a fewer selection than today. We were happy when they added color to the frames. Also look up “headgear”. Man, the 80s were a great time but in some ways – we were just screwed on looking “cool”.
Oh, headgear – everyone with braces had cuts in the corners of their mouths from that. Worse than a papercut!
Boy howdy, I need to send in some of my old ballet pictures. I was as gangly and freakish as any of these kids. My torso took two years to catch up to my suddenly freakishly long arms and legs, so I looked like a praying mantis for awhile there.
And yeah, had those glasses, too. I feel her pain. Though, it sounds as though she’s in no pain at all now, bless her pea-pickin’ heart!
I’m sorry waiter but I ordered the large glasses…

God help me but this is exactly how I looked at that age. The enormous two-tone glasses, the permed hair, and the jazz outfit. I was in dance classes and recital time was the one time per year that I could get all painted in the face with mom’s blue shadow. Rock on, sister!
Kim, at least I am not the only one that sees themselves in this girl.
I actually had to do a double take and make sure that wasn’t me!

I got a fever…for JAZZ HANDS!
I love the committment to jazz hands….”and 5,6,7,8….jazz hands”
Her name is Adriana and she is indeed very pretty now.
No actually her name is Terri. She went to my school.
Sorry Stu, Margaret is right. I’ve held the original photo at Adriana’s house.
This is surely Adriana. I am her proud sister!
Oh dear……thats all I can say
LOL Jazz Hands cocked and ready!
The glasses may be what were called Cosmetones (spelling?)–they were advertized as being tinted one color at the top and another at the bottom, so you had instant eye shadow and blush.
I actually really really wanted a pair at the time, God help me.
The website’s caption is my favorite part. Nothing more true.
i feel like i’ve definitely seen this exact same outfit at american apparel.
This picture is just made better with time, like a fine wine. Future hall of famer, I think.
i think my post was deleted, but here i go again… this girl turned out to be something like a comic artist or something like that… she’s actually kind of proud of this pic, since her background imagee on twitter is the same you’re looking at… also she uses it on her blog… she likes to call herself spyriana…
The sad thing is that American Apparel would sell this exact outfit today with the big glasses. What the hell happened to them?
Omg. So true. Except the model would be in some ‘sexy’ pose and not smiling like that.
Is there a pad hanging out of the “below” there area?
Nah, that’s normal on lots of tights. it’s kinda like a reinforced liner sewn right in. I always hated that about tights when I used to take ballet long long ago.
I do believe there is
Think about it….why would you wear a “pad thingy” between two articles of clothing??
