1980s Memory Lane continues...

What was with Sadie Hawkins dances and why was it couples were to dress alike? I don't know. But here you can see we used the opportunity to both wear our Vans:
Another Sadie Hawkins dance, circa 1983
Those are checkered laces people. And looking closely at those jeans, I know I pegged them to be so incredibly narrow at the bottom I could barely get my foot through them. It was all about the rockabilly look, despite the fact that my hair looked a little bit too close to a femmullet.

And here I give you the asymmetrical hairstyle. Look carefully and you'll see my permed and picked hair was shorter on one side and longer on the other.
Me and my faceless date, circa 1984
As for the fine photoshop work? AdRi did this for you, her first time ever using Photoshop. And yes, she very much enjoyed taking out the faces of the boys I dated. Issues? Never. Finally, as you can tell, different years but same props for the backdrop. Just moved around a bit. I'm fond of the second one where the guy has to straddle a pole. And just to clear everything up here? These two were just friends, people. FRIENDS.

We never had a Sadie Hawkins dance, and I don't recall ever dressing like my dates. You must have went to a cool high school.

Awww, these really are cute pics! Sadie Hawkins dances at my HS only meant that the girls asked the guys, nothing about matching outfits or anything.

We never had the barn-theme with our Sadie Hawkins. It was more of a paper-mache nightmare.
Always, though, we wore alike shirts.
Nice shoes!!

One sits on his foot, the other on a pole. Wtf?

You do know how to accessorize.

You sure were batting 1,000 with the Sadie Hawkins dances. The one time I worked up the courage to ask a boy to it, he turned me down flat. Ironic, no?

I, too, had the asymmetrical thing going on in the mid (late?) '80s. There's a photo of me somewhere in a hot pink bridal dress (with a sweetheart neckline, if you must know) and that hairdo. I was drunk, too, at the time the photo was taken. It is possibly the worst photo ever taken of me.

Not a bridal dress--I meant bridesmaid dress, of course.

Uh, hey, yeah, Anonymous, apparentely from Fresno. If you're asking a question of Rio Mesa or Camarillo, neither. Try Santa Clara. Who are you, anyway?
