LORI'S RETRO GLAMOUR PARTY

I never had my picture done at one of those Glamour Shot places that you see in the malls here, but I wanted to join the party at Family Trees May Contain Nuts. Lori has her post up as well as a few other ladies and I have just finished digging around for some pictures that I think represent a little glamour on my part. The 1st picture is from Halloween and I tried to crop out the boyfriend as he is happily married to someone else and actually, I started dating The Husband about 2 months after this picture. I was dressed as some sort of movie starlet from the past in a dress from the 1940's that an older lady friend had loaned me. It had all sorts of beads and sequins sewn in it and I really felt Hollywoodish!!
Moving along in chronological order, I was married to The Husband a little over a year later and this is a wedding picture. Note the red eyes...I had just recovered from the Asian flu that was making it's rounds. I think I was trying to overcompensate for it with the blue eye shadow, but hey, it was the 1980's!
A few days later The Husband snapped my picture on our honeymoon in Kauai, Hawaii.
And this picture was taken at a photography shop where I was getting my camera fixed. The owner wanted to finish up a roll of film. Odd, but true.

These are about all I could dig up at the last minute. Please head over to Lori's to see some other great glamour shots of your favorite bloggers from back in the day!

Yowza, woot-hoo (wolf whistle)Pretty glam to me. Great shots.
Being so dark I don't think I ever did wear the blue eyeshadow and I don't think I missed out on anything.
You are looking very Marilyn in that first shot...on her good days.
Thanks for joining in. I am loving the pictures.

I have one question--with such a good figure why don't you have on an itty bitty bikini on your honeymoon???? You made me smile--I used to wear Yardley Little Boy Blue eyeshadow! I can't remember what I had for dinner last night, but THAT I remember :) Loved the photos!
