I’ve been going through old family photo albums lately. Now I know why people take so many pictures and put them in albums: it’s absolutely hilarious to look back in time.
While looking through these old albums, I discovered that when I was young I was pretty fabulous.
I wore hot pink jelly flats, floral tops and patterned band aids. I must have been subscribing to the “more is more” philosophy of dress.
This shot was taken at the front row of fashion week…in Granny and Papa’s den.
I wore sunglasses in the house and Mary Jane’s on a regular basis. In hindsight, I might have opted for some sheer black stockings instead of the white tights, but we all fall victim to toddler fashion trends at some point in our lives.
Hopefully, it’s while we’re toddlers.
I wore sunglasses at night. My theory on this obviously practical choice is that posing in my sunglasses after my bath prolonged having to go to bed. My mom was eating it up. It was genius.
I rocked white faux fur. The paparazzi (my dad) caught me leaving the house in it Easter morning of what looks to be 1991.
This was my parents’ first home, purchased in the era of the high-teen mortgage rates. And, bless their hearts, they still managed to keep me stylin’.
I wish I were as fabulous now as I was then. I’m not sure that I could pull off any of these things now.
More to come on the first decade on my life. Brace yourselves.
Y’all come back,
