I'm Totally Going To Get A BOB!

Karen over at Smiling Through It All cracked my ass UP this morning by showing her pics from Yearbookyourself.com. So I had to try it. On my break, of course. ;)

First, we have 1950. So forgive me for looking funky. I wasn't even born yet. 


And now, for 1960. Again, I'm using the "before my time" excuse. I think it's the Birth Control Glasses that ruin it. 

Ahhh...1966. I was a year old, but I'm totally loving the gigantic bob! The sweater's nice, too.

And now for 1974. What I would have done for hair like this! It's so CHER! Alas, mine refused this style. The curls at the top are from my 1999 pic, so forgive those. But 10 years later, I did rock the ribbed turtleneck!


And finally, 1984. The year after I graduated. Although, I did have a disastrous 1982 pic that looked entirely too much like this. It was our Senior Pic day. I forgot and wore my hair in the "wet look." Completely curly. Then panicked and tried to "fix" it. Horrendous.


Now, go play. It's fun. And you never know...you might look good in a bob, too!

You know you look good in all of them, well apart from the glasses, sorry.

I'm gonna try this but I doubt any of them will make me look worse than I do at the moment!

"Birth control glasses" totally made me spit a little!

Tod said...

Whoa, that pic of you in the glasses made me want to hand in my maths homework - 25 years too late. :)

You look really beautiful in all of them, even the glasses.

The bob really is cool.

Oh the 80s big hair! What a great time that was. LOL

Biscuit said...

I TOTALLY have to do this.

You have classic beauty that shined through in every picture, RLL.

Karen said...

You look great. I totally had that 80s big hair too. So hot!

bonnie said...

With a little more time and patience I might get this to work. I didn't have a photo of myself without glasses facing at the camera so I used my dog.

I did two of these pics. Do you have to reset it everytime? I only got the two. Tried to copy them, will try again. I like the bob too.

mackey said...

Oh I love the 80's hair!

The Mistress of the Dark said...

i like the 60s pic. That bob would so be awesome. I may have to play wit this site if I could actually find a picture of me to use :)

Fortune Cookies said...

I kinda like 1984 you! It reminds me of 1984 me ;) wow those were some big hair days. Wifester and I played with this the other night and I keep meaning to post mine. I say you so need that bob!

Spiky Zora Jones said...

Hi babes...1984 is totally you. You are a babe anyway in your now do but...the 84 look makes you look so Hollywood. hehehe

Ciao babes.

Dianne said...

You look fantastic in the 'bob'

A lot like Babs Streisand only even prettier!!

I always wanted Cher hair too but alas I have as my Nana always said "Jewish hair" - which means it does what it wants, is thick and wavy yet never holds a style.

Those (we called them cat glasses) couldn't make a Playboy Bunny look good! Getting to first base used to mean getting those damn glasses off a girls face!

Palm Springs Savant said...

these are a lot of fun! I just went to check it out, thanks for the tip.

Dragonfly Dreaming said...

Birthcontrol glasses, *snort*.

I just did it too, but no way am I posting the results, I think I threw up in my mouth a little..

Manager Mom said...

*tap tap tap* is this thing on? because I don't want my stepmother to hear me admit that with the last picture, you totally stole her CURRENT hairstyle...

KellyKline said...

Oh. My. Gawd. I don't know if I can stomach doing this with my own pic. We'll see, and if I do, I'll post the pics.

gary rith said...

Maybe I should do like Robert Smith of the Cure...

Craze said...

Love it! I must do this. Don't we all have an 80's do like that!?

Ann said...

Okay, you TOTALLY have a face for ALL haircuts, what the heck?

God this looks fun.

OH MY GOD

Mimi Lenox said...

You do look very nice in all of them. I've seen several bloggers do this now. Interesting!
