Vintage Photo Debate...

What are y'all's opinions on vintage photos?? You know, the ones where you and all of your friends dress up and get your pictures taken...like this for example:







I didn't realize that these existed outside of theme parks until a few years ago when my mother came home from a Girls Trip with one. Now her and her friends get one every year...and as my dear sister so thoughtfully predicted, I was propositioned this morning.

As you can probably guess from my tone, I am SO not into these pictures. I don't like to get my picture taken anyway...let alone in some clothes billions of people have had on...looking all skanky with women twice my age.

(As an aside...my mother oh so lovingly announced the fact that I have a blog to the whole family on this trip...which I didn't even know SHE knew about...so I at first felt the need to censor myself in my posts....but then I decided that the reason I started a blog was so I didn't have to censor myself...and so the fact that these women will probably be reading this post...well...I am trying to place it out of my mind in order to be true to myself and my readers!)

So what are your thoughts ladies?? Have you ever had these pictures taken?? Are they treasured memories or photos you have hidden away in a box on the top shelf of your closet?? Would you take these pictures with your mother, grandmother, and three of your aunts?? Hm. I know my answer...

HILARIOUS. I've only seen these at 6 Flags and County Fairs. It's wayyyy to kitchy for my tastes. But to each their own.

A high school friend and I had one of these pictures taken at the beach. We wore garters with money stuffed in them and fish net stockings. I don't know what ever happened to that photo...

I wouldn't pose for one of these photos again. Once was enough!

lol...these may have been cool in the 80's but I didn't know you could still have them done! hahaha...I would be too embarassed to participate.

Hahaha! I'm reading the comments and thinking oh geez! I have one from when I was little... my hometown was a haven for this sort of thing. I actually think if it's done in a cool and different way that it is a lot of fun. I always wanted to do one as a really sexy and sleazy saloon girl now that I'm older, hahaha!
I'm totally biased on this tho cos my hometown survived on things like this!

;)

Kristen said...

ha, I love those pics! They're fun to look back on, but if you actually stop and think about it, it's pretty gross to wear the stuff!

Oh, and don't censor yourself! I haven't told my family or friends about my blog either, it's my place!

I not the biggest of fan, but to each their own. They are kind of fun, I just wouldn't know where or how to display it...
