Born to travel

The Liberal Banana is responsible for this short little photo tour of my life. Short dress, fat thighs, and already toting my first carry-on luggage. I was born to travel, Baby! And please, for the love of God, check out those adorable red sneakers. A fair question might be why was I so completely bare-legged but it was cold enough out for a jacket? Mom? Any thoughts on that? Happy Easter-Peaster! Still with the carry-on although I've chosen a sort of open basket style to compliment my Chanel suit. Or maybe that's my Easter basket. And clearly I am delighted by my hat. Of course even then I had a giant head that no hat ever fit correctly. "Welcome to the family little sister who is going to grow up to be skinny and blonde. Too bad butt-baring styles like this little navy and red number won't still be in fashion." Argh. You can see my little white underwear through the tights. "Let this be the first time out of hundreds that I tell you that you were left on the doorstep by Gypsies who could return for you at any moment." All grown up now, I'm a college grad at 22 and my skinnier, blonder sister is 15. BUT, I had WAYYYY better 80's hair and a much better tan. The end of the 80's is near and I'm fighting to keep the high-on-the-side ponytail look in fashion. My best friend at the time liked hats. Yes, we really were all that. I single-handedly kept the company that makes hair permanents in business. I wonder if they still smell like they used to?

I had those exact same red shoes! I didn't know it, but I was born to travel too.

The pics are wonderful. Love the 80s hair and tan, and the little girl pics are adorable. No matter how cold it was (or how much snow), I wore dresses with bare legs. Why did our mothers DO that to us?

I like a person who is secure enough with their photographic past to bare all. I traded in my humility for humor a long time ago.

Great pictures!! Now I am remembering the smell of perms. I had the same 80s hair. My favourite picture was the first one...so cute!

I'm not sure what it is about kids and carry-ons. We have a photo of my sister that is so similar to yours :) VERY cute :) And yes, you certainly could rock a side pony!!
