the more things change, the more they stay the same

This photo surfaced the other night at my aunt and uncle's house.
It's from my 7th birthday.
I realized I look more or less the same as this lil pixie version of me.

I mean: bangs, the biggest red bow headband you have ever seen, some kind of Cosby sweater, a red leather skirt and white tights. A brand new camera is around my neck (the kind that took 110 film, I miss 110 film!).

I remember this party so so well; I got a ton of Judy Blume books- WAY early for that sort thing. WHO thought that was appropz for a second grader??? Whoopsy.

A few notes:
1. The blond fox is my grandma.
2. My cousin Lesley really knew how to represent on the ca-razay patterned 80s insanity tip.
3. Now I know where my fear of clowns stems from.

The girl with the pigtails is Stephanie Seregos, whatever happened to her I wonder?
