LA Lady

Day 21 in February photo-a-day is 'a fave photo of you'. This one taken of me in 1990 when I was a mere stripling of 28, is not really a favourite but I like it because I think I looked nice (and I'm quite vain you know!) Usually in photo's I've got my eyes shut, or pulling a face, not intentionally you understand, but I'm just not very photogenic! This was taken in LA when I was a hostie, we had several days stopover there and the weather was terrible. Some of us went to the local shopping mall where there was a photographic studio and because they had a special offer on a glam photo session, we decided to have some snaps done for a bit of a giggle.

As you can see, I still had my 80's perm which I was growing out, hence the red bandana thing which somebody was hastily despatched to buy so they could make my hair look halfway decent. I was also wearing a boob tube which you can't see in the picture. Modelling did not come naturally to me and I felt very awkward throughout the entire photo shoot, however being a professional, the photographer did manage to get some rare good shots of me.

Isn't it a scream?

  3. A very glamorous looking photo Fiona.
    Seems you're a bit like me as I too had a perm in the 80s and grew it out when my second daughter was born in 1991.

  5. Great photo! Everyone had a perm in the 80s, it was the law. Mine lasted through into the early 90s too, I think.
    I agree that you don't look uncomfortable at all. About to perform in your very own fitness video, I'd say, without breaking even the slightest sweat! xxxx
