November 18, 2009Teen fashion. Documented. Photo taking people of the universe, you really can never document too much. Because the number of shots I have featuring my 8th grade fashions could be counted on two hands. But oh, what fashionable hands they were. Share this:FacebookPinterestTwitter
Aww she is so preety! Love the pic of you, although with all those shiny togs, I am in amazement that you didn’t go up in flames!
Carmen O says
Your DD is sooo pretty! Love the teen fashions. I bet I could find some of mine. I know I had a Toni Tenille pageboy hairstyle, paired with my flannel buffalo check dress in red and black. OMG I really should scrap that!

Where did your daughter get that Ugly Doll shirt? I have a 14 year old and she would DIE for that shirt!
Great photos of Aiden and doesn’t she look like you at the same age! I have a question on your christmas card post – you showed moving the lines onto the document when you were sizing the sentiment. The lines don’t show up on mine – do I need to enable something for them to move onto the page? I can see them moving at the top but they just don’t show up for resizing.
Anthea Goodman says
Wow, she looks sooo much like you!! Keep these photos and document as much as you can! My parents never really bothered and the few photos they took got lost in various house moves. So now I the photos I have of me as a child can be counted on one hand. Needless to say, I have loooooadds of my girls!!
And the Ugly Doll shirt came from WHERE??? Please share! My daughter would flip out if she found one of those under the Christmas tree!!
I will have to ask her. I think she got it at a local MN store called Ragstock.
Hmmm. You mean the guides? Check under your VIEW menu to see if Guides are checked. That’s where i’d first look!
I think it came from Ragstock, but… the brand is Mighty Fine, whatever that is!
Love the pictures… both of Adian and of you. 🙂
But what I really came here for is info. WHERE did you get the Ugly Doll shirt? My boys would be sooooo happy to find those under the tree on Christmas morning.
Love the pants – skinny jeans in plaid…way cool. Wonder what she will think and the words she will use to describe her look when she is in her 30’s?
Ali Edwards says
Your shoes rock.
She does look like you! Love her hair!
Cathy, thanks so much for this idea. My teen dd is a fashion diva and I never thought to document those outfits that come together from out of her closet. It always amazes me what she will wear out in public.
Shannon Wagner says
I had the same Gelato overalls but in burgundy. Thanks for the blast from the ’80’s past! 😀
Shannon, i KNOW! I thought i looked SO GOOD!
She got the shirt at Ragstock in Roseville!
Kim Holmes says
Me too! I had those overalls in 3 different colors! I have one pic — my senior pictures in my burgandy ones – thanks for the fun memory jog!
Cynthia Friese-Hassanein says
Cool Aiden! I miss the teenage experimental fashion. And your shoes are fabulous!!!!!!!
Are those A-smile overall’s you are wearing, the triangle on your chest seems familiar to me. Don’t we love the 80’s.
Fantastic reminder to document it allllll! Lovin’ your daily posts! =)
Jeanine, they ARE!!!!
Katrina of Southern California says
Gotta love the eighties. I have to say though I want that clock on the fireplace above your head. Too awesome. Your kids will thank you for all the everyday photo’s.
Sara Lovell says
Fabulous t-shirt – my daughter would love it too! I see lots of people are asking where it’s from – as we live in the UK, wherever its from would be a bit of a trek! Very cool, though!
Absolutley cool clothes!
Your daughter is such a beauty!!!
Greettings from Germany,
Did you live in my house with me growing up??? Because that fireplace looks just like the one we had. I didn’t have cool clothes like you though.
Sandy C says
lol. Love the groovy picture. I think I had a matching outfit. Did you notice though that it looks like a knife is sticking out the back of your head?
Leslie Ackman says
Love this, Cathy!!
Love the contrast between fashions of the 80’s & now! I’m so tempted to go and dig out photographs of my own 8th grade days, although I don’t think I have many.
Jane Toft says
Fabulous pics of Aiden. And what a treat to see the pic of you. Personally I’m loving that clock!
Heather Jordan says
Beautiful pictures of your equally beautiful daughter!
Is that an ugly doll t-shirt?? My 16 yo daughter collects ugly dolls and she would love this shirt? May I ask where you found it? Thanks, Cathy!
Heather, my daughter bought it at a store in MN called Ragstock!
Jeanne Pellerin says
Cathy, were your shoes Candies?
I’ve had a look under View>Guides and although it has a Guide Preset option, it’s not one I can click on. I’m currently using Elements 7, do you think this option is new to Elements 8? Thanks for your help with this
Cathy, I’ve checked under View>Guides and although there is a Guide Preset it’s not something I can click on. Is it possible the guides are new to PSE8? I’m using PSE7. Thanks for your help with this.
Sorry, thought the first reply hadn’t worked :oP
OMG I still have those shoes!!!! LOL
You know what? it IS new to Elements 8! Sorry. Just checked in the older version. Sorry! : (
I totally was laughing at that too! Too funny.
i like how that pointy thing is shooting right into your head.
Are those A. Smile overalls and Candie’s shoes? I just was transported back to 1979. I can hear the “If you like pina coladas…and getting caught in the rain” song and smell the school lunch!
Wait. I even see the REAL AFRICAN ART hanging on the fireplace!!!!!!
Pilbara Pink says
How come our kids are sooo much cooler than we were …. must be having such cool parents I guess 🙂
With the wooden dagger above the fireplace by your head, it looks like they are trying to cook you over the fire. Toasted buns anyone??!!
Thanks for sharing 🙂
Ever since she started showing up in your scrapbook pages I thought she was going to be a model. So beautiful!
Plus, more templates please!!!!! You’re the only one on DD that does 8.5 x 11!
I thought it might be Cathy because I couldn’t get it to work no matter what I tried. Thanks for confirming it! I can rest easy it’s not just me being thick ;O)
She is beautiful. I wish I had a daughter to do these types of photo shoots with!
