Sincerely 'Fro Me to You...Mama Made It

This is the "Mama Made It" edition. Yes, she sewed this shirt--and the matching scrunchie!! I do adore polka dots now, was sort of a foreshadowing of things to come.

The shirt isn't bad! But the over all outfit could be more flattering.

Please notice the "half heart" best friends necklace. And the lovely plastic earrings.

Again, this perm was one its way out and, oh my, the Rave hair pray this must've required...I shudder to think. I wonder if the O-zone has improved since the 80s just because women and teens are using less hairspray??

Now enjoy this full-length shot. The M.C. Hammer-esque pants, rolled up, of course. And those lace-up sandals!! It's a lovely look. I know now not to put my hands in my pockets--I can't afford the extra bulk. But it does afford a casual quality to this pose, don'tcha think??

Can't wait to see all the 'Fros today!!!

We Are THAT Family

You are the perfect picture of my childhood, from the 'fro to the chunky earrings, to the pants. What are those pants called anyway?

Love it!

Crayl said...

Although not flattering, those pants were comfortable. I think I had those sandals too! I wonder what we wear now that we will laugh at later?

Tammy said...
