Vintage Allison Girls



Um....yeah. So, my mom just found this picture of us girls and sent it to us. Isn't it lovely??? Seth cannot get over the massive sea of floral fabric that is in this picture. All I know is that these dresses were Laura Ashley...and that was a very big deal in the late 80's!!!! If i remember correctly, we had make up and hair done...and then had these very fashionable pictures taken!
Now...let's talk about the funny items in this picture:
1. Nice backdrop...did someone just drape sheer pink fabric EVERYWHERE? "The church looks like it was hosed down with pepto bismol!"
2. Nice forest green fake flowers!!! Sweet touch.
3. Our hair...WOW!!! Mine has some awesome swoop in the front...Summer's is WAY long...My mom has a sweet-looking perm...Gotta love the 80's!!!!
This was for your veiwing pleasure...hope you enjoy!
P.S. I know I had on white Sam & Libby shoes too...does anyone remember those babies??? LOVED them!

FREAKIN' HYSTERICAL!!! Thank you for posting this. BTW, your mom bears a strong resemblence to beth moore in this pic.

Katie said...

OH MY!!! That is great!!!

Summer said...

Okay, if want to bring yourself down with bad pictures, fine. But, I resent that I am featured in this picture on your blog. This should be buried somewhere along with the one in the blubonnets where the photographer had us pretending to pray. We seriously suffered through some bad photo shoots back in the day.
And, is it just me, or does Kourtney look so much like Macy?

Summer said...

You know I am kidding about resenting you? But, I do resent that we ever had to take that picture at all!!!

Rachel said...

OMG - THIS IS PRICELESS!! I love Summer's expression, really you are the only barely smiling!! Too funny! Oh how can we not remember the 80's! Thanks for the laugh!! Do you think our kids are going to make fun of us like this too when they look back at these blogs....no way!

That is a fabulous picture! Isn't it crazy to think that in 20 years, our kids will be looking at the pictures we took today and making fun of how we dressed them?

Carolyn said...

No wonder all 4 of you look raging mad in that picture!!!! Mauve was the color of the 90's and you had to be RICH to have Laura Ashley clothing! HAHAHAHA!!
Hilar and definitely EMBAR!

Mindy said...

Sandi said...

Hilarious. This is one I've never seen!

Kelly said...

Kelly said...

Yes, Sam and Libbys!

Lane said...

OH. MY. GOODNESS.!!!! That is so hilarious! Oh the 80's...gotta love it! One era I hope NEVER comes back fully! The hair is just too much! :)

lauren said...

Wow! This is too funny! I can actually go backwards 20 years in my thinking and see that those were really nice dresses! I definitely had Sam and Libby shoes and can still remember how they felt on my feet. That background is just hilarious!!

Amy said...

This is a rare moment for me, but...I'm SPEECHLESS! :)

Tara Caire said...

Here is my take on the picture!
Tesney - Oh to be uttered in the same sentence with Beth Moore!!!
As far as the dresses - they were on SALE and back then it was "cool" to match mother/daughter dresses(so go shoot me!)
I do have to apologize for the hair - perms, bangs, BIG HAIR(I was a product of peer pressure)
Brittney - as far as the white Sam and Libby shoes - you are on your own on that one!
I anticipate the day (20 years from now) when I can look at all your family pictures from you bloggers out there!!!
PS This picture means the world to me - I would not take $1 million for it!
