Flashback Friday - Christmas 1992

Tis the season to pull out super embarrassing pictures and post them for the world to see. As I went through my scrapbook last night, I came upon this picture and thought, "this picture is wrong on SO many levels. I must use it in my post tomorrow." My criteria for picking Flashback Friday pictures usually consists of one major thing:

1) Is this picture embarrassing?

I am sure I was overjoyed with the two books that my grandma Jinny gave me. I actually remember reading both of them. But, I didn't post this picture to talk about the presents I just unwrapped. I posted it to talk about that outfit I was wearing.

I was a BIG BIG fan of the stretchy pants (note: "stretchy pants" is said like Nacho Libre in Nacho Libre. If you haven't seen it... you should watch it just for that part). I however am surprise that I wasn't wearing the stretchy pants with the foot stirrups. I had plenty of those. I love that my pants are floods. Especially because they are exposing my rolled down socks and white Ked shoes. I love the 90s!

I am pretty sure I got that turtleneck that morning from my parents. I loved wearing my new clothes up to Jinny's for Christmas breakfast. I however chose to pair said turtleneck with a sweater that is clearly 5 sizes too big for me AND a slightly different color that my pants. The colors are close enough that I clearly thought they matched. I claim I was color blind.

I love this picture. Your stretchy pants outfit is a classic, I'm sure at one point I wore something similar myself.

I loved stirrups on stretchy pants. I had several pair. Best would be when you had a sweet pair of ankle boots to top the outfit off.

that outfit is perfect! I still remember my stretch pants and oversized sweaters. And I totally remember reading Matlida. Another well done Flashback Friday Natalie

You were at the height of fashion in this picture. Any self respecting 10 year old in 1992 would have died to look that good!

I so look forward to your flash back Fridays! It makes me want to start my own. Let's just say I used to wear fanny packs and neon colored suspenders... The 90's were so great.

OMG - you're a book worm trying to be cool in your lil' outfit. Do you think Matilda would have spent time worrying about her stretch pants? Hell no, she wouldn't have! She was too busy making objects levitate and casting spells. Maybe if you had concentrated on that type of skill set you wouldn't be stuck working where you do.
