Neon Green 80s
We were so cool, so bad, so rad.
Recently I rediscovered this picture of my little sister and me in matching homemade neon green outfits circa 1984. When we were very little, my mom made most of our clothes, culminating each spring with beautiful Easter dresses. She continued through the mid-80s then (gave up?) opted for store bought just as I hit middle school and she started working more. Shame on me for coveting the name brands at the mall.
Make no mistake – it is not an accident that my shirt is oh-so-casually falling off my shoulder. I was trying to distract from the glasses.
I don’t know which is my favorite part – my sister’s tiny side ponytail or a that we’re rocking our neon green shorts-suits with matching lace trimmed ankle socks AND jellies.
A moment in time. A moment in time.
