HNT Flashback: The beginning of my Sunglasses Obsession

While going through my pics for Tuesdays blog, I found this pic:


Last day of school my Junior Year (1984). I remember the night before my best friend (who lived with us) and I had a bunch of gals over. We were excited it was our last day as Juniors and next year we would be SENIORS. WAHOO!!! So we all wore sunglasses to class the entire day. LOL

Boy was I just too cool. I look like an ad for the Blues Brothers. Can those glasses get any bigger on my face? And I kinda miss the Farrah hairstyle!

I find it funny that way back then, Sunglasses were important to me:-)

Totally cool! I'm still seeing a touch of Joan Cusack here. I think I would have asked you to prom.

bunny,
Oh geez, I'm embarrased to admit that we actually did that one night. Drove around with our sunglasses...singing that song. And I was driving. LOL SCARY THOUGHT.

We are sexy, we take no jive, cuz we're the class of '85!

Moose, somewhere around here are a pair of raybans with pink sides. LOL

I think it was quite trendy back then... I remember keeping my sunglasses at work around that year... just for the fun of it.. ;-) It was a very cool look... and it's still... ;-)
HHNT!

Wow, look at that great "feathered" hair. I remember that style from back in the day. Pretty then, pretty now. Glad I got to know you. Thanks for commenting on my post. Bye.

Fashions come, fashions go. Nice to be able to look back. Happy (belated) HNT

I think the cool feeling was what was important, not so much the glasses. The glasses did look cool though. Happy HNT a day late!

TUG said...

What a time capsule! The hair, the shades . . . were you wearing leg warmers? You've definitely upgraded your look since then!
