    That’s right, baby!

    Very cool post – I love looking back on old pics :)

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Aretha says:

    Funny! You had the “Pat Benatar” style hahaha

  5. Paul Pincus says:

    With all due respect to Aretha, I think you look like Susanna Hoffs!

  6. Ashley says:

    look at that great hair, Wendy…That’s some great volume! :)

  7. WendyB says:

    Ooh, I’ll take that as a compliment, Paul. But I usually get Phoebe Cates. Not when I had that hair of course, but with longer hair. I used to think that the comparison didn’t hold water, but about two years ago I was out with a friend and noticed some woman who looked irritatingly like me. I was like, “That woman stole my style,” and she turned around and it was Phoebe Cates. So I gave in on that one. LOL, Ashley, can you imagine how long it took to achieve that volume?

  8. Heather says:

    awesome! I love your short hair!

  9. Bobble Bee says:

    OMGoodess you look terrific in the picture from the 80’s!! i really mean it!!
    I like that hair with so many different colors ^_^

    I burned all my old pictures because I had a sad, sad predilection for wearing 18-colored “Jamz.” It was unfortunate.

  11. Kian says:

    You and I had the same hair and makeup back then. The eyeliner I used was from Maybelline and had the consistancy of India Ink. Also the staying power. Loved that stuff.

  12. Kian says:

    OH and my husband always says I look like Phoebe Cates! I really don’t see it. I get Ashley Judd too. I seriously doubt either of them would agree LOL

  13. Sally Jane says:

    I love the stonewashed 80’s!

  14. Olga says:

    You had awesome hair back then!

    Your mom’s picture is lovely!

  15. WendyB says:

    Kian, you’re going to have to post a picture so we can compare eyeliner. I used to put mascara on, powder on the lashes, then more mascara….PAD, I haven’t thought of Jamz in a long time. Thanks for the horrifying flashback.

    I really love your hair in the 1st pic. Obviously very breakfast club…Hope you had a happt TG

    lovin that hair Wendy, especially when teamed with the smouldering teenage scowl.

  18. WendyB says:

    D&P, that is quite a scowl, isn’t it!

  19. Renée S. says:

    Love the first pic!

    OMG 1985 you could be 1985 ME! Only I’d be a blonder version. And you still manage to pull it off whereas I’d scare small animals. You still look cute with the ’80s all over you. How unfair! :)

    I demand that you share your ’80s photo, guv’ner!

  24. The Guv'ner says:

    I believe I have one at my mum’s house where I am sporting peroxide blonde, six inch high, spiky hair and the most horrendous outfit you have ever seen. Hopefully it will burn in hell before anyone ever sees it. Shudder!

    WHOA…that is almost identical to MY hair in the 80’s!!!! I had to do a double take!
    But wait…I think mine was bigger. :) I got called Bran Muffin a lot, because my hair looked just like one. LOL
