My BFF and I took these "modeling classes" together when we were about 12 years old. God bless our mothers. It was the modeling agency's way of making money, undoubtedly, and finding maybe one talented gal among the 50 of us. No, neither she nor I were one of them. You'll see why.
Neither of us really wanted to model...at least not beyond the dream all of us have of being models. Right???? :) But it did teach us a lot about hair and makeup, how to carry yourself, walking like a lady and looking good in front of the camera. I still get told how "photogenic" I am. I say, "Yeah, I look better in pictures than I do in person." It's a fact.
So. This picture. I just adore this pose. It's so natural! So sassy! I practiced that, too, BTW.
Let's start at the top, shall we?
Major bangs. A professional hair stylist over-saw this look so I can't take the blame entirely! Permed hair, of course. I think this perm was on its last leg. I recall a lot of mousse going into this.
And, um...I could've plucked those brows a little more.
Braces! Can't forget those!
Check out the plastic earrings. They match the shirt(s) and shorts, of course. Probably ran me about $2.95 at Eckert.
We've got the double-layered tees WITH the sleeves rolled up. Ya don't wanna miss the lime green underneath.
Then the shorts. Hmm. "Hot pink," yes? It seems like those were meant to be athletic shorts, but...who knows?? I don't recall wearing them aside from this photo shoot--I bet my mom said they were too short. They were definitely nylon. Classy.
Ah, the lace up sandals. Man, I have to admire those long, lean, tan legs. No cellulite yet!
Yup, this one is is a doozy, circa 1989. Can you relate to any of this?? :)
