Rodney King Day in the Blogoshere



In honor of Rodney King and the spirit of 'Why can't we all just get along"...Sundays can be a bi-partisan /non-partisan day of coming together and laughing at ourselves and pictures from the time capsule.
This was Senior Prom 1989 -held at the 'Poshy-Posh Country Club'.
My final grade in Advanced Applied Art was cultivated from this night -as I designed 5 of the dressses there (including mine)....Grade A

Justrose & Cigarette Smoking Man have posted their's too...Go check them out...

What a gorgeous little red number you have on there darling and what an eighties trendsetter you were ....!

I'm sorry everyone can't see the choker with the cross and the big snake wrapped around it!

Who's the dork in the picture? Not you, the other dork. You were into Warrant weren't you.

The 'dork' in the picture was my "Axel Rose" man...No, I wasn't into Warrant --I was into Metallica/Suicidal/Danzig, etc. I just didn't buy into that whole 'you have to look like you haven't bathed if your a metal chick' thing...I didn't believe in jeans & sneakers...oh, how motherhood changes things...

Ala71,
Your hair was much better looking than your date's. I'd like to have seen your Dad's face when "Axel" showed up.

ALa said...

BigandMean: Unfortunately for Dad, 'Axel' and I dated on and off for almost 10 years...Harley Davidson and all...
Actually, I don't think my parents really minded him -I think they would have been more shocked if I came home with someone 'normal'...LOL
