Camera Shy - Kids

Camera Shy

“My son, daughter, and I went to a community day event in Jamestown, Virginia, where we won this gift basket in a raffle. The organizers wanted to take some publicity pics with us, and of course my daughter was being a stinker and threw a fit. Only my son and I sat for them. Years later I was clearing out my email inbox when I rediscovered this gem. Kids can be so creepy!”

The Outfit Checklist - Teens

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 - Misc

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!”

Baby Crazy - Kids

Baby Crazy

“It’s safe to say I was really proud of my Beanie Baby collection. I do still have all my ‘babies’ and that tie-dye shirt. Don’t have the glasses but I do have a pair of Warby Parkers that look a lot like the ones I was wearing here.”
