The 90’s

Potpourri

“The year was 1992 or 93, the place Olan Mills. I’m the one with glasses, braces and the mushroom cut. My sister and I were wearing matching dresses my grandmother made. There is so much going on in this picture, I don’t even know where to start…It’s cringeworthy all around!”

The Chug

“This is a picture of my family on Easter sometime in the 90’s. I’m on the right with the stonewashed pink pants, mullet to match my older brother’s. The only thing in this picture that focuses the awkwardness away from me is my Grandpa in the next room slamming what I hope to be his first Easter beer of the day because if memory serves me correctly, we always took our pictures before church.”

Beanie Lady

“My 1998 senior photo. Could any other photo describe the Beanie Baby craze better!?!?”

Dadcation

“This is a picture of my Dad during our 1997 trip to Disney World in Florida. Fanny packs and mid-riff shirts, and nut-hugging shorts were Dad’s preferred ensemble. He had started a mullet a couple of years before this and refused to cut it until he retired. He’s still working, but my mom told him she wouldn’t go with him on their 32nd Anniversary cruise celebration unless he cut it. He finally gave in.”

Match Game

“Matching set, pouting lips, and a crotch grab. A classic 90’s combo.”

Sears Sophisticated

“My husband’s 6 sisters. I believe they were going for a serious pose, a ‘Sears Sophisticated’ style!”

Eye Of The Tiger

“This was at my high school Daddy-Daughter Dance in 1990. I loved this sweater and wore it often and the tiger is like a third person in the photo. The hair, the sweater…can you guess that I’m a Jersey girl? :)”

Weeney Roast

“Me being an Uber Goth teenage posing next to tombstones unknowingly covering the ‘S’ in ‘Sweeney.’ Kind of ruined the mood of the photo!”

Dialed Up

“My family owned an Internet service provider when I was growing up, and this was our big promo shot.”
