Portrait Of A Doomed Relationship

“This is a picture of my college roommate and his girlfriend, taken when they were in high school. They planned to stay together and each had photos taken like this–she’s on the phone because they ‘planned to call each other every day.’ He hung this photo on his wall in our freshman dorm room. They didn’t last.”

The Outfit Checklist

“My checklist for leaving the house:¬†plastic visor? Check. Awkward goggles? Check. Pink plastic Swatch watch? Check. Michael Jackson-style glove? Check. Outfit purchased at the thrift store? Check. Self esteem much higher than situation warrants? Check. ‘I’m ready, let’s hit the road!'”

My Many Fashion Mistakes

“This was me in 8th grade, in ’92 or ’93. I don’t know what is worse: the perm, the ribbon, the tucked-in shirt that no sensible middle schooler would ever wear, the black shoes with white socks, the way-too-obvious black watch, the ’97 for my graduating year or the fact that I was trying to look cool. Epic fail!”
