Sincerely 'Fro Me to You Thursday--Great Glasses

Welcome to my second installment!

New to the game? Visit
We Are THAT Family



Yes, in 1991, those were my new glasses. For reading, I believe.

I do look more studious somehow.

The hair is definitely just "OK." The bangs were very typical of the early nineties, and it's permed, of course.

My question is, was that the best I could do on frames?? C'mon!!! I look like I borrowed my dad's glasses in the 1970s!!

I will also comment on the rolled sleeves. We did that!! And the Swatch watch, remember those?? I would go into the department store to get a new rubber band-thingy to go over the face of it--to protect it from scratches?? This particular one might even be a generic Swatch.

P.S. Katharine, do you remember loving this picture of me??

I love your NEW glasses. That made me laugh! Those were the days. I never got the rolled sleeve look, I struggled with it, but I was a nerd like that :D

P.S. He loves you... said...

Go to the weeks before FRO post and you'll see the same glasses on me!

So cool really!

My oh my, my glasses were exactly the same. The past two weeks of 'Fro Me To You have had me sans glasses. But I'll have to post one of me in the huge things sooner or later. At least yours weren't colored plastic, like Sally Jesse Raphael.

I love the rolled sleeve thing. You don't look much different in your 'now" photo. I mean updated of course, but not much older. Nice.
(I also can not resist cute office supplies)

I had a pair of glasses like that and a Swatch! Oh, it was a joyous Christmas morning the day I got my Swatch!

I think it was cool that you were sitting at a computer in 1991!

You look so much like "Carol Sever" from Growing Pains in that picture!
I never had glasses but actually remember always wishing that I did. I did have the swatch with the guard though.

I had very similar frames and hairstyle.

Hee! Your glasses bring back memories. I too had glasses that seem way too big when I look at pictures. At the time, I thought they looked pretty dang good. ;)

I played too.
