cleaning out my grandparent's house with my mom, my youngest brother went through all the old pictures and separated out the pictures of me. He called this little collection of history the many hair-do's of Elizabeth. But I'm not quite sure that I'm ready to show you the progression of me in big hair through the 80's, culminating in what can only be described as a blonde afro ala Vanessa Huxtable. Maybe I'll show you when my hairstyles come back around and are vintage cool.
Foregoing the big hair show does not mean you don't get embarrassing old photos of me. I did find some pictures of some little girls in a little red gingham dress, and I'm willing to share because it totally takes the focus off me and you get to see photos of my sisters. I'm the oldest, so the dress was new for me. That picture was taken in 1975-ish.
pink sponge rollers the night before this was taken to achieve those fabulous ringlets. The dress I'm wearing is floor-length and has Sesame Street characters on the skirt. You can see Big Bird under my elbow. Pretty cute, huh? I wish we'd saved this one
I wonder what ever happened to the little red gingham dress? If we'd have been thinking properly about it, Julie's oldest daughter would have had her picture take in it in 2002 and LadyBug could have done a photo shoot in 2004. This dress vintage-y cool now.
