I shared this once before, but a picture like this is begging to be shared again and again.


The year is 1997.

One of my best friends turned 18.

We got drunk, rented a limo and went to the club.

Shhh, don't tell my mom.
Let's take a look at the arrows, shall we?

Bottom Left: Kelly is wearing an athletic jumper.

Bottom right: I am wearing pleather pants. My top is also see-through.

Top Left: Sun-In can really do some damage to your hair, y'all.

Top Middle: Yep, those are my tonsils.

Top Right: Zima.

Enough said.

First...and I say this with all love because I was a big lover of them in the 90s...ya'll look like you're channeling the Spice Girls.
Second...ZIMA! Kids drank this on a class trip in 1999 and even the chaperones asked 'Who drinks this shit?'

Good times the 90s....

Oh, Sun-In. The magic potion that gave me crispy, orange hair in junior high! Can't say I miss it!

Zima and pleather pants... that takes me back. Ahhh the club days!!!

Funny story... I once sported my pleather pants to a Fat Tuesday's in Ft. Lauderdale during spring break. I looked AMAZING... until we started dancing (the fat tuesdays was an open air bar, off A1A (yes the one Vanilla Ice raps about) beach front the whole 9. So I got sweaty and then had to go to the bathroom. Drunk + Hot + pleather pants = TOTAL ROSS MOMENT IN THE BATHROOM! I'm glad I was alone, it literally took me like 20 minutes to get my pants back up. After that I prayed for mild dehydration so I wouldn't have to do that again.

Hahaha oh my gosh. Hello, Misty tonsils!

Kelly Tempel said...

Still love this picture hahahaha. Sure was a fun night

Christina said...

Awesome. I had so many stupid sheer tops in 1997, and most were floral. I stopped using Sun-In in junior high and classed it up with Herbal Essences temporary hair dye and had a different color every 30-40 days. Ugh.
