1990.

So....when I was about...ummmmm....twelve years old....getting Glamour Shots was the in-thing to do.

Me in my school picture when I was twelve:


And the Glamour Shot... well, let me warn you: I look...um....like I am from Texas with that BIG HAIR! (Okay...I am from Texas, but I've never intentionally styled my hair that big other than these Glamour Shots. And then---it wasn't me. They did that...the "glamour stylists"....)

Are y'all ready for a laugh????


Laugh all you want. I thought I was hot stuff.

And just for fun today....come up with your best captions please!
It reminds me of a very Nancy Grace type pose....

But you guys---humor me. What caption goes with that Glamour Shot???

I am not sure about the caption, but that jacket is too funny! Red fringe?

You scream Texas. Wonder how much hairspray is in there?

No WAY! I have that exact same pose, but put about 9 years on me, LOL. I had the Glamour Shot thing done in November of '91 for my now husband (then boyfriend) - the picture is STILL in his office - doesn't look a THING like me! I ought to try and scan it sometime.

That is a huge difference. It is amazing how much older you looked in the Glamor shot.
I remember doing that and I have saved mine too. I pull it out every once in a while for a good laugh. I too had huge hair.
That is a great idea for a post, I might have to copy it.

....for some reason, it also makes me think of a real estate business card.

All I can think of is, "Don't mess with Texas." But that doesn't do it justice. I always, always wanted a glamour shot and my mom wouldn't let me have one. I bet it was a lot of fun, wasn't it?

You DO look like a real estate person. Holy crap!

I think I peed myself. Thanks for that.

I'm pretty sure that even now, anyone who goes to glamor shots ends up looking like a girl from Texas with big hair. ;)

Oooh Ooooh "These are the days of our lives"

The hair reminds me of old school Reva Shane from Guiding Light... heehee, oh god I'm really becoming a desperate house hussy... soaps. SWEET!

I don't have a caption, but that glamor shot is priceless.

I was so laughing the other day thinking... where ever did Glamour Shots go? :)

i totally have this same picture, except the jacket is black.

definitely a real estate business card!!

Caption: "Dis whut I call my glamur pose."

Totally agree that it is a Nancy Grace pose!! And most definitely a real estate business card! I can't seem to think of a good caption but it was definitely a good chuckle :)

ha! I remember glamor shots. OH how funny. I wonder if I could dig mine up???? We so would have been pals. I had the same hair.

Caption: I'm too sexy for my fringe, too sexy for my fringe....
