I went searching for a picture of myself with no front teeth but came up without one. I can't imagine how that is possible when I had no front teeth for years. Literally.
What I did find? Well, I laughed, I cried (from laughing so hard) and I laughed some more. I thought I would share because well, who doesn't love to share the fashion blunders of their youth?
This one isn't so bad. I was kinda cute in a holy cow there's a strange man trying to make me smile sort of way. Apparently didn't like to show off my toothless grin.
I waited until I HAD teeth.
And what pretty teeth they were. The better to eat you with my pretty! Moohoohahaha!
Right, so don't show off cute toothless grin but make sure to display hideous buck teeth.
Or wait, maybe I did learn from my mistakes....
Fast forward through more bad hair and tacky outfits to this.
THE YEAR OF THE BRACES.
Yes, SOMEONE made me laugh so that my braces would be visible. I don't remember who but I am pretty sure they should be egged for that
Although, would it really matter, my pretty peach and green ensemble coupled with my mullet isn't really helping either. I can't even say, well at least I had good hair
Oh and yes those are bows on my earrings and the necklace was a bow too. I think the golf shirt under the sweater with a necklace was a hot look, no?
I didn't have my school picture from Grade 9 but I did have my skating photo from that year. In my search I found a report I did in Grade nine about myself. Here's an little bit of it:
“I have brown hair, brown eyes and medium skin. My eyes are too small, my face and nose are too long and my skin is too dry. Oh sorry, I forgot to tell you that my lips are too pale. Well that pretty well describes me doesn’t it?! Now I will tell you what I like about appearance (this shouldn’t take too long!). I like my hair because it is naturally curly although at times I can get quite annoyed at it. You see it tends to have a mind of its own. Now I will tell you what I dislike about my appearance (um, didn’t I already do that?). I dislike my legs because they are too muscular.”
Boy it really sucked to be me, didn’t it? My lips were too pale and I had muscular legs. WOW. The troubles I had. I think the picture shows my bulging muscles quite well don't you? Arnold had nothing on me!
Thankfully by Grade 10 I was coming into my own.
We lost the mullet, can I get an HALLELUAH?
And just to show you how fast my locks replenish, this is one year later:
And actually I kinda still have the same 'do, minus the youthful face
That was fun... and I also found some seriously funny pictures of a couple of friends... in one hair simply defies gravity, it amazing really. I won't subject her to this but you can bet your bottom dollar I'm scanning that baby in and emailing it to her
Tell me, what was your most famous fashion or hair blunder? If you blogged it, go ahead and link it.
