THROW-BACK THOUGHTS

Shirt-JCrew, Skirt & hat-Anthropologie, Shoes-F21

The other day I was spraying my hair with this cheap hairspray I bought at Target and it just wasn't working. I usually use bedhead hairspray,  but I go through the bottle so quickly that I thought I would try the generic version. My deductive reasoning behind the cheap hairspray working just as well as a name brand bottle was based on my frequent usage of Aqua Net back in the 90's. I guess I should have bought Aqua Net instead. Or maybe my memory of Aqua Net is wrong. Sometimes I remember things greater and grander than they were, like Garbage Pail Kids cards. I thought those were great and grand in 3rd grade. I gaurded those babies with my life so they were crisp for trading day. I guess we all have those memories. Here are a few that I thought of :
1. Snap bracelets
2. L.A. Gear
3. Using 555 phone numbers on T.V. (wait, do they still do that?)
4. Zack Morris, loved him,
5. Ace of Base, Spice Girls, Mariah Carey
6. Buying jeans at 5,7,9
7. Hammer pants
8. The word "stoked"
9. Calling time...ha,ha
10. Dialing my phone number and immediately hitting the hang up button so the phone would ring.
11. Prank calls
12. Sneaking out of the house to hang with the boys.
13. Ditching school and then getting caught forging my mom's signature on 15 excuse notes...smooth.
14. Zippered skinny jeans

Feel free to add to the list. I know your memories are flooding in about now.

Could you be any more adorable?! i love the modern look on the bicycle. I am so jealous that you are in a warm enough climate for this!

PS. I was a huge fan of snap bracelets. Don't judge ;)

Thanks for the comment on my blog or I might not have found yours. You are lovely and your clothes are equally so!

Also, that Gap blouse ... the one with the bow ... did you buy that recently? I'm kind of in love with it. I also just looked at that Audrey Hepburn book tonight with a friend of mine. What a coincidence!

Ha! I had forgotten about dialing and hanging up real fast to make the phone ring. Ah, the simple pleasures of youth.

You look adorable. It's a I-can't-wait-for-spring outfit!
