Born This Way

As my friend kpc said when she saw this, “I love you as a Tammy.”

This was my 6th grade Halloween costume and, oh, what can I say? Apparently I decided to go as a divorced school teacher that year. On the list of things that doth inspire, I would include:

  • one bulbous white blouse
  • one fire engine red polyester skirt (the more awkward the length the better) with matching turtle neck
  • one perfectly enormous rope-knit purse, and perhaps best of all
  • gray high heels with sateen ribbon ankle ties

I reprised the costume for the church Halloween Carnival, although I traded in these shoes for a pair of hunter green pleather pumps.

Love this?  Then go here.

    Another thing we have in common: I loved Tammy too. Knew every word to every song and can remember belting it out (un-seat-belted) from the backseat of an Oldsmobile. And now I live just a mile from her old house!
