And I might have also been a boy.
On a positive note, this IS proof that I had bangs before bangs were cool. Or maybe while they were cool and through many cycles of their of coolness and uncool-ness. So the next time that someone tells me that I have "Zooey Deschanel hair" or even more timely: "Michelle Obama hair", I'll have to remind them that for the most part, my forehead hasn't seen the light of day since toddlerhood. Half the time, even I don't know what's under those bangs.
I have no quick excuse for my freakin' huge shirt collar though. All that I can guess is that disco fever had puddled down to the elementary school set.
The loverly ladies over at Modern Kiddo just did a post with some of the best vintage school class shots. Go on over and take a look. The fashions will inspire and amaze you (and make my yellow vest seem less jarring). Wonder at them all here at Modern Kiddo.
I'd love to hear about your most mortifying school photos! Please tell me that you had them. Soothe my Buster Brown haircut ache!
Until next time,
x's and o's,
