Sincerely 'Fro Me To You

A fashionista ahead of her time...
I'm not entirely sure if this photo is my grandma or my great-grandma. There's no name on the back of this copy, but it looks like the great-grandma to me. So let's go with that, shall we? (Sister or Lori, if you know who it is, comment me!)
Whichever one it turns out to be, one thing is obvious. We have been a family of trendsetters since the turn of the last century! This young lady displayed a sense of style that was oh, maybe a hundred years in advance of her day. Really. She's dressed almost identically to lots of small girls in 2009. Shapeless smocked dress? Check. Chopped-off hairdo. Check. Humongous hair bow twice the size of her head. Check! The only thing she's missing is a pair of filthy Crocs to complete her modern day ensemble.

Not sure why she's wearing her bracelets way up there by her elbows, but I'm certain it was cutting-edge, just like the knee socks!

Add long hair and the previously mentioned crocs... and that IS the Tongginator.

Though many girls down here in Charleston do wear crocs....everywhere, including to church, most little Charleston girls have one or more pairs of Mary Janes in their closet...just like the ones your great grand is wearing!

LOL at the Crocs comment, because we all know it's true.

And, WOW, that bow is ginormous!
