The 70’s

Big Mama

“80’s big hair had nothing on my Mom’s hair from 1970!”

Hat Trick

“The year– 1977. For my 2nd grade class picture, I was determined to wear this hat my Grandmother made for me; after all, it matched the dress my mother picked out for me! This photo is the re-take; when my mom saw the first picture – with the hat – she made me go for a do-over. Needless to say the hat came with that day too. I still stand by my decision.”

The Wonder Years

“During the ages of 8 to 11 years old (1972 to 1975) I became trapped in a vortex of awkwardness. And my mom’s taste in clothing really brought it to another level – this stuff was embarrassing even back then. I honestly don’t know how to chose which pictures to send because it seems each one was worse than the last. But here are the two best , age 8 from 1972 and age 10 from 1974.”

Uptown Funk

“This is a picture of my uncle and his friends before a school dance circa 1975. Leisure suits, bell bottoms, and they decided it was an awesome idea to remove their shirts for the picture. All the girls were gaga over these guys back then.”

Lil Pimp

“This is my brother and I around 1975. He had been given the outfit as a gift (I believe from a relative) and they decided it would be a good idea to wear this to church.”

Detroit Rock City

It wasn’t the Manilow album she had been hoping for.
