    I can’t lie-I rocked a similar look in junior high (82-84). I pretty much burn those pics when I come across them.

    The poor cabbage patch kid has been banished to the heap under the side table!

    Hmmm. I think I have to say my loudest 1980s moment was the dance recital with the costumes consisting of spandex sleeveless top & knee-length pants, bright pink and decorated with rainbow splotches up and down the sides and bright green sequin trim. The “Barbie rock star” look, I guess. Otherwise: I wore splatter-paint jeans, neon colors, green jelly shoes (bought a pair online in my current size) -and ridiculous holiday sweatshirts. But I was 8 and younger. Between ages 8-12, I was Early 90’s Awful in floral print pants (or dresses) and things in pastel colors. I reflect on the fact that my grade school/middle school glasses were…”ok”…but the lenses looked too wide. I am keeping my cute narrow frames. Cabbage Patch Kid? Forget it. Cabbage Patch Pony!!

    This pic rules!!

    I too had the notorious “upside-down” glasses, plus the jelly shoes and wild shirts back in the 80’s. My favorites were a pair of hot pink plastic pumps! Real-life “Barbie” shoes they were! I wore those at Halloween with my “Jem” costume!!!

    is it just me or are her glasses upside down?

    I need to know who this is and who submitted the pic!!! It looks just like me in the 80’s, but I can’t place the house. I seriously had that shirt, among other accessories!!!

  11. Amanda says:

    The big glasses, the hair, the whole outfit…I’m having an 80’s flashback right now.

    Silent Night…..Lonely Night……

  14. Kim says:

    it may be a silent night but man is her outfit screaming! lmao

  15. Katie Swim says:

    I had jelly shoes in the mid eighties, and crazy shirts as well as those dang glasses. Poor girl really thought she looked pretty nice there. Im sure she’s with the times now.

  16. Tracy says:

    Look at the decor….the poor girl never had a chance.

  17. Renee says:

    Hey now…this outfit was obviously planned out.

    pantihose 6 shades darker than my skin…check
    socks…uh…better go with white it goes with everything which is exactly what I am wearing
    shoes…well, I am wearing a dress and black goes with everything to

    and voila!

  18. Jennifer says:

    Socks? Pumps? Socks? Pumps?

  19. Kimberly says:

    Well, I see where my glasses from high school went.

  20. Alli says:

    OMG! For a second I thought this was ME!

    But I do need to make something very clear. I would never ever wear socks in my shoes like that. I mean, come ON. I can’t comment on that sweatshirt and say whether or not I may have had the exact same one, maybe with pants to match too, just sayin, you know, IF I had it.

  21. Tim says:

    I think I’m in love…

  22. BP says:

    That whole outfit had to be part of her Xmas gifts. The typical mother telling her to “try on your new clothes” picture — love it!

    That tree was already being upstaged and made to look lacklustre by the busy wallpaper and the shiny gold upholstery. I think the girl’s earrings are nutcracker heads; whatever they are they’re nicely balanced by the hosiery\blue socks\open-toed shoes combo that complete her ensemble.

  25. binkymae says:

    Jenny tried for years to be known as the trend setter at her school. Who would have thought that at last she hit gold by catching the leading edge of the cabbage patch doll craze.

  26. Mark says:

    Does she know that her glasses are upside-down?!

    • kathleen says:

      The 80s was the era of many things including “Effed-Up Glasses” and for a while the enormous glasses that appeared to be upside down based on the placement of the ear rests was a popular look..I know this based on photos of my parents among others. I hope this look never again becomes popular.

  27. WI_DJ says:

    over the top, the sweater, glasses, hair, socks, huge earrings, bangle bracelets and to top it off the cabbage patch doll freshly unwrapped

  28. lagrange says:

    somewhere in the corner, Stephen King is thinking of his latest novel for the creepy girl in the funky sweater

  29. darkshines says:

    I was born in 1985 so was *just* old enough to appreciate the 80s. Did anyone else have one of those sweaters with animals on playing in the snow, but it had pompoms stuck on to represent snowflakes? I also had a tracksuit, springy neon “self tying” laces and jelly shoes!

    As we would tactfully say in the South: “Bless her heart!”
