I looked through my old Polaroid collection and thought it might be fun to share some pictures of my style transformations over the years.

Above you can see that I was a pretty damn cool kid. Look at me rocking that red nightgown! (I called it my "Mrs. Claus dress.") You can also see that I got to meet my idol Barney (although I remember being so pissed off because he was the wrong shade of purple). And I really wish I still had that Batman tshirt and that dino sweater (in my size, of course; I don't think those exact articles of clothing would fit me anymore).

This is me at age 17. I wish I still had this Smiths shirt, too, but I wore it until it got holes in it. Don't ask me why I was wearing two belts, I still don't know the answer to that.

Here I am at age 20, in Charlotte, NC. I covered this dude's face because I'm not sure how he would feel about the fact that there is photographic evidence of us together. Having short hair is fun and cuts shower time in half.

And since I'm being nostalgic, this dress is what I wore to my senior prom five years ago.

Rue 21 jacket. Ancient hoodie and tights. Thrifted button-up shirt. Jessica McClintock dress.

The Room

Addison and I moved from the basement to a room upstairs (which is much warmer and cozier), so I thought I would share some pictures of our new room. Enlarge to see more detail.

After taking this picture of me, Addison said, "Here is your shoegaze album cover, courtesy of your drunk photographer."

Rue 21 jacket and skirt. Ancient hoodie. Thrifted bow shirt. Wal-mart boots.
