My 15th college reunion is coming up this weekend, and as a class officer doing the behind-the-scenes preparations, I’ve had my head squarely stuck in the late 80s and early 90s. You know, listening to my (thanks, Jess!) “Eighties Child” mix tape now on iTunes, reminiscing on our class blog and adding to our class Flickr pool of RIDICULOUS photos. And it wasn’t even that long ago. Yeesh.
So, in as a place holder for of some of those embarrassing photos I promised you for your generous March of Dimes donations (and I WILL post those next week, really!), today I give you this brief peek of my college years.
In the interest of full disclosure, these photos are specifically chosen for some of the people who read this blog regularly AND happen to be in some of those photos. For the rest of you, enjoy and DON’T ACT LIKE YOU DIDN’T WEAR LAURA ASHLEY DRESSES, TOO.
Who needs a handbag when you have an attempt at cleavage? You do see what we have stuck in there, right? Oh, and like our matching curls and matching pearls? Off to a formal dance, I think this was 1991 or 1992. I also think I may have had a bubble skirt on the bottom of that dress.
Michelle, I hope you are reading today, this one is for you! 🙂 Nice decor, eh? NOT MINE
Our senior formal dance. The flowers are blinding me.
I had to find different people to pose with–fewer flowers.
Sorry for the double post, Sarah, but I love this photo!
Easter weekend, senior year of college. These visitors were trying to distract me from my organic chemistry woes. They succeeded—I haven’t used organic chemistry since.
Oh Rebecca, can’t wait to see you this weekend!
First one to find me gets a prize! (No fair if you were in the photo with me.)
Wish you were coming this weekend, Anne! And p.s., can we all please admire how skinny my arms used to be?
From our senior week White Glove Brunch. I wonder what they wear now that Laura Ashley is out of business!
Kind of hard to explain what we were doing, but it was a time-honored college tradition.
Hope you enjoyed the peek back at 1992-93–and be thankful you aren’t wearing a Laura Ashley dress, white pumps and nude panty hose today!
NOTE: I did NOT ever wear the white pumps and hose. Some people in that era did.
I JUST NEED TO MAKE THAT CRYSTAL CLEAR.
