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.

I don't know why this scan keeps coming out so small!

Same outfit as the other photo!

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!”

    If I ever spot a turquoise leather jacket on my travels, I am buying it for you! Such a classic.

    I have a snake and spider ring that I’ve had for close to 30 years – one or two of the pictures of my teen self shows them. Dang, I’m old.

    Neiman Marcua has been sporting some cute colored leather jackets over the years. In a moment of insanity, I bought a purple one years ago–I won’t wear it because I feel like a pimp. I have a ton of jewelry from the 1980s so I feel really old!

  5. I LOVE Throwback Thursdays and photographic evidence of the artifacts in situ -and absolutely there had to have been a reason if we took multiple photos!

    Have you seen this jacket? http://www.ebay.ca/sch/i.html?.....;_from=R40
