Proof



Just in case you think I exaggerated about 
Jackie and my childhood hair-do's
when I said we had 2 kinds ...
pixie with uneven bangs
or bad Toni home perms.
Actually, the un-even bangs 
were pretty much a staple
in both looks.












Jealous much?

  1. This is such a HOOT! I ♥ the picture of the two of you with your dad! Such a SERIOUS pose. I'm not sure I'm ready to go public with my old school photos! I'm still getting over one of them.

  8. Bah! Yes my favorite is the green dress/white collar, too. So cute. Obviously your mom didn't subscribe the the Pat Burrus method of cutting bangs. (Tape 'em down with that pink hairdresser tape and cut'em straight across.) I too either had super straight or some perm action going on. The problem with the perm was that I'd swim all summer and have green chlorinated hair, and yet someone thought it was always a good idea for a back to school perm. Chlorine hair + perm = awful school picture from 2nd to 7th grade. Just ask my kind sister Michelle what she thinks of my pics. You on the other hand! Cute! I love that first picture of you two as babies.. you both looked like trouble!

  9. I have the exact photos also! I may even have one with the same dress! I'm going to work on finding proof. :)

    Did your mom use the sponge rollers and bobby pins with dippity doo too? Ha

    Gotta love the 60's...:)

  10. It's uncanny how much you both remind me of beautiful Natalie Wood. Three pretty little girls.

  13. You were such a 1960's fashionista! All I remember from those school pictures is that my mother always decided my bangs needed cutting the night before picture day. So...to (kind of) even them out...they ended up being short Mamie Eisenhower bangs. And...the photolight was so bright I look like I am crying in all of mine...which I was! I probably came dangerously close to burning a retina...all to immortalize my beauty (crooked bags/Toni perm). Our kids have NO idea how good they have it! lol
