Yes, our family is nebulous, and yes ties and cardys are bitchin, especially with a haircut like this, with slicked back sides and a wave in the front. Here is what Erika said about her look.
“Here’s my school pic from around, I think, 1988. Maybe 7th grade? I was going through a “tie phase.” I wore a lot of ties that year. 😉 This pic features a tie my dad wore in the 60’s. The vest & shirt I believe belonged to my stepmom in the 70’s that she gave to me, & the cardy was all new, all mine. Hope this pic fits your bill!”
Then, she signed off. 5 Minutes later she followed up with this….
“Thought I should mention, I think I look awesome in this pic & am totally not embarrassed by it. ;)”
Which made the whole thing even way cooler. Thanks Erika for being so cool and sharing this jewel with us!
