80s Flashback!!!!

Oh my gosh! Isn't this picture hilarious! As I was getting Grayson's pictures together for his scrapbook for graduation, I came across this funny picture of me! It actually is not the 80s, but it is 1991. I was 30 years old. I was a young, busy stay at home mom of three little boys, Mackenzie 7, Cameron 5 and Grayson 6 months.
Do you like my "reverse silhouette" jeans? I remember thinking I was so in style, but now looking at them they are so unflattering to my figure! Notice how high waisted the pants are! Who remembers the little ankle cowboy boots too? I wore those all the time.
Big hair, big make-up and big earrings.....what a forgettable decade! I actually can't believe I had that much hair, now that I'm older my hair has thinned out so much. Oh well. Everyone needs pictures like these to look back and laugh at! I dare all of you out there to show some pictures of you from the 80s!

Pictures from the 80's??? I don't think so!! Actually I wouldn't be able to since our scanner is broken! BUT, you look the same, well except for the hair, you look exactly the same as now, beautiful!!! And yes I remember thinking how cute I thought I looked only to see myself now, and think, what in the world was I thinking? OR better yet, my sister actually said to me one day after we were looking at old pictures, "How could you let me dress like that???" As if I had control over her wardrobe!! Great memories!! Enjoy your day!

Nodding my head in agreement about the fashion, hair-do, earrings, etc. I was there. Been there done that, as they say. Golly gee willikers. All that aside, you're as beautiful now as you were then, Sharon.

The 80's, 90's, or now...you're still beautiful!

Big hair, lots of make-up, big earrings, you should have been a Texas girl. I hear they do up everything big in Texas! Too cute!

LOL Sharon!! :o) I agree w/the ladies here ~ you STILL look great! I had big hair too & loved it. It has gotten very thin though in the past few years. (Perhaps it was all that hairspray?) Wish I was as thin as my hair ~ ha ha. Were you ever into "leggings?" Not me!

Have a wonderful day.
Hugs,
Mardell

PS: Loved the camping photos!

Linda said...

Hi Sharon...I think you look pretty but as times change we change too. It was fun seeing your flashback picture....hugs, Linda

Sharon said...

Thanks Pamela! Did you ever see Working Girl? That was such a funny movie and it was so 80s! Their hair was huge!!

:0) Sharon

Sharon said...

Thank you Mardell. Yes, I was into leggings! I thought they were perfect because I wore them with the big long sweaters and shirts and I could hide my fanny! I wonder what we will be laughing at in ten years that we wear now???

Have a great day!
Sharon
