Throwback Thursday: Hippie Day

Scene is 1994, newly a senior in highschool. Pictured here with my theatre buddy Shawn.

We had spirit week and my favorite day was Hippie Day. I had a blast shopping for something to wear at the Salvation Army with my best friend Jen (and I think this is when we realized we should have been shopping at thrift stores all along.) I found this dress and shortened it myself, then made the matching headband. I actually ended up using this a year later for my costume as a hostess at Ed Debevic's in Chicago.

And I know- my outfit is more mod-60's than hippie, but whatever!

The Pinks and Blues Girls Blog is where it's at for Throwback Thursdays!

Check out my latest giveaway from Polkadot Patch Boutique!

  1. Looks like you haven't changed since high school! I'm the same way - perpetually 17, even after 2-1/2 kids. I suppose that's a good thing though, despite the dirty looks I get from old ladies when I'm out with my kids and not wearing my wedding ring...

  3. You worked at Ed Debevic's? That's awesome. I went to Wheaton College, and went into Chicago a ton, but never, ever, ever went there. I wish I had.

    You look too cute!

  5. He looks like catman you have to ask your mom about him. Or maybe she posted him once on her blog. Great picture.

  6. Didn't That Girl have bangs? Maybe that's your answer to bangs or no bangs. Always enjoy it whenever you look younger than you are. I think you could still wear that outfit today. Of course in Boulder you can wear anything and get away with it.
