No Strings Attached

June 6th, 2012

“This was my first day of 7th grade – 1985. Notice me dripping in 80’s awesomeness. The feathered hair, the tinted glasses, the eyeglass string, the popped color, and the vest. I’m sure I had pegged jeans (rolled) on as well. You just don’t get any cooler!”

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

June 6th, 2012

“The year was 1985. Every Thursday night us girls would load on the Aqua Net and head to the popular teen dance at the Elk’s Club in Hanover Mass. There, we would rock out to Poison, Aerosmith, INXS, Billy Idol and Ratt! Love the high waisted pants and my friend Stacy’s huge hair!!”

Feel the Heat

June 6th, 2012

“I’m the girl in the middle with the matching pink legwarmers and headband. I don’t think that workout leotard could possibly be pulled up on my hips any higher. All I can think of when I look at this picture is that song by Olivia Newton John “Let’s get Physical, Physical…”. Although, if I wore that to the gym today, I doubt if anyone would want to get physical with me. They would probably just laugh.”

Strawberry Shortcake

June 5th, 2012

“It’s the only photoshoot our mom made us take and here’s the story behind it. I am the youngest, wearing the Strawberry Shortcake dress, and I was sick. Before this shoot, I was crying my eyes out because I didn’t want to sit for photos and I didn’t feel good. Obviously, by looking at the photo, none of us wanted to be there. Also, if you look at the quality of the photo, it gets even better. The photographer didn’t even capture my sister and brother in their entirely into the photo, their shoulders and hair were cut off!!

Pure awesomeness, that’s what this photo is! When I post it places, people cannot believe that this is our real family photo and that we actually paid for it. I was there and yes it is very real and yes, we paid for the photos. We’ve tried to recreate this masterpiece, but we haven’t been able to capture the feelings that we had that day.”

Denim Days

June 5th, 2012

“I am the little girl who looks to be about 40 years old and that’s my brother on the right. My mother wanted our portraits done and we didn’t want to be anywhere near each other so she bribed us with candy bars to stand back to back like best buds. Oh yeah, and clad entirely in denim. Why did we all have those giant glasses in the 80’s? I look like Tootsie.”
