I found another 1980s photo of me wearing my friend Jim’s turquoise leather jacket (by the way, I’m STILL looking for the turquoise jacket of my dreams after returning a discolored one.) This photo was taken indoors right before or after the outdoor photo post here was taken.
The fact that there is more than one photo from that day says a lot about how much I adored Jim’s jacket. We were using real film in cameras back then, so we couldn’t take a million pictures of the same outfit like we do digitally. I was obviously extra-determined to properly immortalize this look.
I’m glad I used the extra film because I was able to spot a detail that got lost in the outdoor shot. In my right ear (on your left), I’m wearing one of my then-favorite single earrings … one that I still have! I posted a picture of it last year.
For some reason, I get a thrill when I see something I still have in nearly 30-year-old photos. It’s like, “Oh, it really happened!”
