The 80′s

The Outfit Checklist

The Outfit Checklist - Teens

“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!’”

I Dream Of Ricky - Misc

“This is me in my bedroom, with puffy Ralph Macchio-style hair, in the industrial loft that I grew up in (hence the water pipes and asbestos ceiling directly over my head). This photo perfectly encapsulates my world at the time, which was MTV and Ricky Schroder.”

“My Mom and Dad in 1987. Dad didn’t realize they were taking a picture and tried to hide his cigarette so fast it caused a smoke ring to form next to his hand.”
