Oh, Shirt

“My 14 year old daughter forgot it was school picture day.  Normally would have fixed her hair and dressed nice.  On this day she wore a Nike shirt that said “Just Do It.” Good thing for us, her hair covered the rest of the shirt and left STD. It’s going in the yearbook!”

There’s Something About Lottie

“When I was in 6th grade, my two older sisters were popular and had big hair, and I was an awkward kid so I thought I’d be cool for a day. I went to town on the Aquanet hairspray. I used almost half a can to get this Big Bang as tall as I could. The photographer literally had to take a step back to fit my hair in the school photo and i really don’t know how he kept a straight face. I shared this on Instagram once and couldn’t even fit it in the crop.”

Come In Orson

“My 80’s style was on point in this school photo. Garfield pin on my Mork from Ork suspenders and pants, over my popped collar, on top of a unicorn print turtleneck. Everything above the neck is a bonus.”

Clipped

“I found this picture recently when I was cleaning out some old photo boxes. I think I was in 3rd or 4th grade, which would make it the early 1980s. My parents, obviously having no idea what roach clips were used for, not only let me buy it, but let me go to school with it pinned to my collar on picture day.”
