Bloggers Show and Tell Their Fashion Disasters From The Past

Even Dogs Have Bad Hair Days

Yesterday on my weekly Tuesday's Question, I asked you to show or tell me your fashion nightmares from the past, well, mainly your wardrobe and hairstyles. I even posted a picture of what I thought was the longest permanent in history- my own.

The idea for this question came from another blogger and friend Bab's at Beetle Blog who I mentioned in yesterdays post because she wrote a post about her worst permanent. Therefore, I thought well maybe a question about your worst hair day or perm. or outfit might work as a good question.

But, I must say, only the bravest bloggers responded... Therefore, if you feel you have the courage to send in photos of your bad hair days or wardrobe emergencies, we will be more than happy to post them.

Or you are welcome to tell us about your past fashions in comments and I will post your comment along with a link to your blog as I've done here. I usually post participates answers to Tuesday's Question within the same post, however, (although I didn't mention this in yesterdays post) I decided to give everyone a little extra time to get their photos together today, therefore I'm posting an extra post with yesterdays responses.

Here is one of the pictures I posted yesterday of a pregnant me, with a permanent in my hair that lasted throughout my pregnancy. The hairdo is still growing out in the photo in yesterdays post my 14 month old son sitting on my lap-

Yesterday I felt sorry for my son when I looked at the picture below; because before he was born, the poor child didn't know that his mother would have an uncanny resemblance to Bovines when he was born.


My first comment was from Grace at Broadway Matron who didn't have a photo but wrote an hilarious answer. Thank you Grace...(and you be sure and let us know when you find that picture. ) Oh and don't forget it includes wardrobe as well...and you still have time... ;)

Can't participate in this one - my hair is dead straight so what few pictures I have of myself is just me with dead straight hair - sometimes long, sometimes short sometimes in the middle.

I must add tho that the day before my 8th grade graduation pic was to be taken my mother cut my long hair off and permed it. I had the only Afro in my class. Needless to say there are no outstanding copies of that photo. Not to worry tho, because a month later it was dead straight again LOL

My next comment is from my dear Friend Sandee at Comedy Plus, who is in the process of looking for a photo I'm dying to see, therefore be sure and come back and see if you have it posted. If not, be sure to visit Comedy Plus, if you haven't already, you will happy you did- and remember I sent you.

I don't know when I can pull this off. I'll need to find the pictures and then scan them. It's going to take a bit, but I'll play along. I've got some 70s hair and you haven't lived until you see that.

Stand by.

Have a great day. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)

Next up is another dear, dear, friend Dawn at Twisted Sister who, like Sandee, is so loyal to Tuesday's Question they already deserve a medal, but yesterday she blew me away with her latest gutsy display of friendship. Although, even though I know she is shy, she is gorgeous enough to can get away with a bad hair day.

Here's Dawn with her 80's permanent having a blast with her siblings, which are,
from left to right they are:
Marilyn Dawn Brud Dale Glenda Here's Dawn's comment, followed by what I said in italics,

Oh I just know I'm gonna regret this... you've got mail. "(By the way, I got your mail. :))"

Before you read the next comment, read this message from Dawn to Sandee in the comments to this post, it's hilarious. You see, it seems Sandee has been waiting to use her scanner...well, just read this;

This from Dawn at Twisted Sister to Sandee at Comedy Plus,

"Pleeeeasssse Sandee! Don't leave my 80's pic all by it's lonesome self!
LOL... hope some other brave soul joins me Annie!"

Then after a few hours I got this message from Sandee,

Okay, my post is up. Go have yourself a chuckle or two. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)

Show And Tell Annie Style

Don't you love that title?

Well...it's also a great post, but I thought we shouldn't leave Dawn at Twisted Sister here by herself, so...I brought the pictures from Sandee's post over here too.

However, you should also read Show And Tell Annie Style on Comedy Plus...because it's hilarious and she recommended some great links to read at the end. Have fun laughing....

This first picture is of Sandee with her Mom's home perm. that she often speaks of in her posts. Get a load of the look in those mischievous sky blue eyes... she looks as if she could get away with her hand in the cookie...

Here's Sandee's with the "big hair" she speaks of in Show And Tell Annie Style.

And what photo album would be complete without a few Glamor Shots?

And you are glamorous, my friend in every way...

My next comment is from another dear and sweet Friend Maunie at Maunie James who didn't send a picture but did tell us a great story, thanks Maunie~ You are truly hilarious~

Wow I don't have a scanner but I will tell you a story about one of my birthdays....I had short red hair, kinda pixieish (spelling) a white leather hat perched on top.
A white angora sweater with a mini leather skirt so short I should have been arrested...and of course
thigh high white leather boots.

It cost me a fortune to look so wonderful.

I did get lots of attention...not necessarly the best kind. My sister
took a picture and said she would blackmail me later.

I adore the pictures of you Annie
you are so darn cute.


The next answer is from Jackie at The Painted Veil a talented in addition to one of the sweetest bloggers in the blogosphere.

Although Jackie couldn't participate because her scanner is broken she left a comment anyway, which, by the way was perfectly fine. ;) Thank you Jackie~

Here's Jackies comment:

Oh Annie I can't really participate in this one much either because I don't have a scanner.

But, I can tel you this. Your hair is truly not curly compared to mine in the eighties.

Also thank you so much for dropping by on Walter's birthday.

It is taking me a while to get everyone added back into my favorites and make visits to everyone.

But you are now in my EC bar marked and I will be visiting as much as possible.

BTW...I think you look adorable in those pictures!

Big big hugs,

Next Raymonty at Raymonty stopped by and thanked me for the song I posted for Music Monday.

You're welcome Raymonty~ :)

Here's Raymonty's comment:

Thank you for the song.

My next commenter, Babs at Beetle's Blog, who actually inspired this weeks Tuesday Question, said,

Now you see. That's just how my hair was when I started to grow my perm out. All flat on top and sticking out at the sides, only much curlier. Then it got even worse! The last stage was the photo I posted, then I cut it all off!

Then Grace at Broadway Matron came back to tell us something about burning a picture?

Annie: My hair does not hold a curl it is so obstinate. I've literally been thrown out of hair salons and told "wear it all one length long, or all one length short, you'll never have a hair style" Oh and when it is short, it has to be cut just right because I have cowlicks all over my head...oh, yeah and it is very thick in the back and on the sides...

And if anyone has the class picture of the 1960 8-2 graduation class from P.S. 134Q - BURN IT! (We had 6 8th grade classes of approximately 35 kids to a class).

Kasey at Do Everything Blog
left a comment on Tuesday's Questions post.

Kasey go dig out those pictures girl. Just do what I did and have someone blindfold you until it's over. Don't worry we're not going anywhere...

No, I'm only kidding, I just glad you left a comment. (A lie) :))

Here's what Kasey said:

This does sound like a lot of fun. But I'm just not sure that I can stand to look at some of my old pictures again :)

I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to those of you who participated in this crazy post, and invite more of you to join in if they wish. It was...or it is fun.

Also, a special thanks to Bab's for sharing her perm. disaster that gave me the idea and to Bicycle Wordpress for having a great image in google images. (The Poodle)


Sandee (Comedy +) said...

I didn't get to it today, but I promised I'll do a post tomorrow. I'll let you know when it's up. I promise I will do this. Hubby has been gone for hours and he had the scanning printer.

Now you are wondering why hubby would leave with the printer aren't you? Bwahahahahaha. He's the secretary of a gun club and it's dues renewal time.

Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)

Dawn (Twisted Sister) said...

Pleeeeasssse Sandee! Don't leave my 80's pic all by it's lonesome self!
LOL... hope some other brave soul joins me Annie!

"Annie" said...

Sandee, I believe you and I cannot wait. Can you believe all these chickens? There is no rush...the post is not going anywhere.

I cannot wait to see your photo, plus, Dawn is about to lose it with only the poodle and me for company. Laughing....

You and Dawn keep me laughing...:))))

I Love you, and hugs~


"Annie" said...

Dawn, dawlin, do you feel alone with the poodle and I?

What's wrong with spending your days with a poodle and a curly haired Bovine? Besides, you're hands down the best looking one in the bunch so far, so hang in there, and count your blessings.

We've got all day today and you never know who may show up~

On a more serious note, thank you for being such a good sport.

I don't know what I would do without you and Sandee.

Maybe I should offer an award...? What do you think?

That might make a difference, but actually, the more people see others posting the more they'll come forth.

I waited most of the day yesterday because people usually keep leaving comments after Tuesday anyway. So hopefully we'll have more company.

In the meantime, enjoy being the best looking one, and be glad you're not the one by the poodle. ;)

Luvs ya,

Thank you, and thank you again~

Big hug~

Lisa said...

Hi Annie, thanks for the visit and the nice comments, I appreciate it..thanks a bunch...
Anyway Happy b-day day too.

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

Okay, my post is up. Go have yourself a chuckle or two. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)

Show and Tell Annie Style

Dawn (Twisted Sister) said...

Okay I'm not sooooo lonesome anymore.

Sandee's pics are great!
Four photos and not a poodle in the bunch!

This was a fun post Annie... :D

Shinade said...

now Dawn's sister Marilyn's perm looks much closer to the perm I had for years in the 80's.

Oh I do wish I had a scanner that worked. I really had the curls going on.

And I too always wore with the sides pulled back.

I didn't know what else to do with them.

But, Dawn's hair looks fabulous. Obviously she had a better hair dresser than I ever found!


P.s. Love the poodle!!

Shinade said...

Okay I just popped over and saw Sandee's pictures. I had forgotten all about my childhood nightmare home perms from my mom.

She was always very determined to make me look like Shirley Temple.

I would always spend all of my time walking to school pulling on my hair trying to make the curls go away.

Our generation suffered greatly from Shirley Temple's little golden lockets!!

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

It was a fun thing to do. I can't remember when I've had so much fun on your Tuesday question/challenge. If we can't laugh at ourselves we are in serious trouble.

Have a terrific day. Big hug and lotsa lovies Annie. :)

Kirsten said...

Those are great!!!
BTW-That poodle pic reminded me of my hair during the 80s.
In case you were wondering...

Bratwurst Recipes said...

I don't know if you can consider that dog having a bad hair day ;)

Some people would say that it is super classy, hehe.

Till then,


Melissa1143 said...

oh my gosh - it's an actual glamor shot like on Napoleon Dynamite. I didn't think people actually did those. great pics!

Ferd said...

Annie, I feel like I've been away forever. And I'm here at this post 4 days late. But I am so glad I returned to see this one! LOL!!! I love your picture and the ones of Dawn and Sandee. Having been a young person in the late 60's and the 70's, I can relate to the big hair that was perfected in the 80's. But Sandee has some really cool shots from back in the day!

I am not brave enough to add my funniest shots. Sadly, they are from today, and they are not "big" hair. The are sadly thin, sparse, "small" hair. : (

I'll be back, Annie.

Motherhood- Courage

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons






Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Ann Clemmons

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination
