I shared this photo a while back, but didn't tell you much about it. I definitely didn't show you a close-up.
This picture is either 6th or 7th grade. I'm thinking most likely the end of 6th grade. It was in 6th grade that I absolutely had to have that really cool black ESPIRIT bag. Because all the kids that were cool had them. I don't know how I got my hair that big. It was definitely the style though, and we all had bangs. During the 7th grade the bangs were thinner and higher, so this must be 6th. By 8th grade, my best friend Misty and I started the no-bang, hair parted down the middle trend. Very hippy, and in all the teen mags. We did it first at our school, and soon others followed. Pretty good for some middle of the road kids. We weren't the coolest, and we liked it that way.
Like that half-shirt? Yeah, awesome huh. That almost see-through white jacket had turquoise panels on it, and didn't it look cool with my black pants? Syke! My guess is they were Jordache or Guess jeans. Come 7th grade I bought (well my parents bought) jeans that were stretchy and zipped up the back. They also had small zippers at the ankle so I could get my foot through the narrow bottom. The result was boys loved to go behind the girls and attempt to unzip the pants. They never made it, but they enjoyed the pestering.
Wow, if I were to pull all those notes out my friends and I wrote each other... then you'd really have a laugh. This has been fun, and I know there are more terrible photos! Actually they are the ones I haven't scanned...yet!
