Vintage JuJu

Every once in a while, usually around the beginning or end of the year, I like to look through the old pictures of my family, partially for memory purposes - it's really nice to see my deceased grandmother looking healthy and happy - and also to laugh hysterically at some of the fashion faux pas from the earlier part of my life. Granted, the early parts of my life were in the 80s and early 90s, which were horrible eras for fashion (And why, for the love of GOD, is 80s back in? Did we not learn anything from the decade of big hair and neon????), so I have plenty of fun choices to mock.

Yesterday, I whipped out the old, crumbling tomes of days past. I couldn't help but think, "Oh, I was so cute! What the hell happened?"

But anyway, here are a few of the highlights:

(Now, I would have just posted the pictures here directly, but Blogger was being dumb and wouldn't let me. So you get a video instead. Whee.)


  1. P.S. You may have to go watch it on YouTube to actually be able to see the whole screen. For some reason, it's cutting off on here. Grr. I hate technology.

  2. When you grab the embed code off youtube you get the option to customize it using the little star button on the right. Click it and you get the various size of videos. Select one that'll fit, prolly... 480x295 THEN grab the code and embed that in your post. You could grab the new code, edit the post and paste the new code over the old and it SHOULD fit.

  3. I can't even get over how cute we were. Seriously... So friggin' adorable.
