TBT-Sisters Smiling



This is one of my favorite pictures.  It was taken perhaps around 1985.  This is my sister and me. I love our smiles. Dig those big glasses I was sporting!

We both have our original hair color in this photo. And I can still wear those earrings.  ;)

At that time in her life, my sister loved to wear black and white, with sometimes pink or purple thrown in. She felt like everything would go together if her wardrobe consisted of those four colors. I think that was a brilliant plan, and I've sort of adapted it for my life.  I own lots of black clothing that goes with everything.

This was taken in my kitchen.  I still have those same cabinets but the rest looks a lot different now. 

The next time my sister visits me, I want to have a picture taken of us standing in that same place and in that same pose.  I'm pretty sure our hair colors are going to be reversed!

Love the idea of taking another photo with your sister in the same spot. It will be a treasure!

What a good idea to take the picture the same the next time the two of you get together :)

Cute! I had a pair of big glasses like that back then too. There's no accounting for fads.

Love It!
You two should definitely take another picture like that. What a great comparison that would be :)

Oh, I love it! I miss the eighties...sometimes. I miss the music, but I don't really miss the fashions. Having said that, have you noticed that neon colors,leggings, and big baggy shirts are in again? Great picture of you and your sis.

The only things you two are missing in that photo are shoulder pads! I loved shoulder pads, as I have very narrow shoulders.I had a similar haircut to your sister at one time. Hair color may or may not have been original at that time; I always like to play with it (now it's out of necessity!)

I am loving these throwback posts! Those glasses are amazing and I agree, your sister was definitely on to something by keeping those main colors in her closet!
