This fabulous photo was taken the day of my brother's high school graduation. He is three years older than me. I was blessed to have lots of handsome adolescent boys around while growing up. I think my attempt at sophisticated 80's fashion does in fact make me look older than 15 !! I am proud of how modest I was dressed that day. I do recall though that pencil skirt had a slit up to who knows where, otherwise I wouldn't have been able to walk. I had not yet introduced lycra into my wardrobe .What was I thinking ? The funniest thing is we would work so hard to look so much older than what we were. What I would do now to look younger ? I

FYI, your link over at the We are THAT family is incorrect-- I had to find my way here so you may want to correct it. I think you put .org at the end.

Anywhoo, I LOVE some 80's fashion and hairdo's.

Ok, now that I've gotten a closer look at your photo let me point out a few great things I noticed:

1. Encyclopedias by the truck full on the bookshelf
2. Your fabulous bow belt-- wore that fashion many a time back in the day
3. The Alabama Coca-Cola Classic on the shelf. ROLL TIDE and still have some of those packed away somewhere
4. That phone...had forgotten about those
5. The globe. No one has a globe anymore.

The good ol' days!

What a great photo! I had an older brother too. And many crushes!

I remember the pencil skirts. I had a great black one and I remember diving across my bed to answer the phone and it split up to my chin. Seriously!

Thanks for playing along!

You look quite lovely! I know what you mean baout trying to look older. I did too and succeeded unfortunately. I am trying for all I've got to keep my girls looking their age. Which is hard these days.

As for brothers and having boys around...thank goodness their brother is younger!!

I think my grandmother wore that exact same outfit one summer. :)
