Do you have any embarrassing pictures? I do. I thought I would share one with you today. You're welcome.
Back when I was in high school (in the early 90's....gasp), Glamour Shots was the fun thing to do. In a nutshell, they would do your hair and makeup and let you pick out "fun" outfits. Then you would sit for a photo session. They would clean up your pictures (read: Photoshop, before regular people had it) and charge you a ridiculous amount of money to purchase them.
Naturally, one of my best friends and I saved up some money and made an appointment. We were 17 years old, and $140 was a big deal. We took some of our pictures together (I believe there was kind of a biker theme that involved bustiers and leather). Then we got to pick our individual looks. I choose a red dress and pearls (and some big hair, obviously). It was 1993.
I just looked up Glamour Shots to see if they are still around, and I was surprised to see that they are (even the location at the Sawgrass Mills Mall, where I had mine taken). It does appear that have toned down the looks a little bit. Now they ask you to bring your own outfits and take family portraits. I guess you have to change with the times.
Do you have a Glamour Shot (or other equally embarrassing pictures from your teenage years) that you would like to share? I would love to see them (and I am pretty sure my readers would too). If you do a post on yours, I will plug it over here. Spread the love!
