That is so funny. But I'm sure she's yours mentally; the triumph of nurture over nature?

What a dear little thing you were, though. Perfect little shape and with a bit of natural wave to your hair.

I was wearing extra-short-shorts, bare midriff tops and no bra to school about the same time...that was the style year-round in Florida (hey, at least I wasn't streaking, like some of my classmates! ). Why my very old-fashioned parents never said anything against such skimpy attire was a puzzle. They certainly had strict rules about everything else.

Ah, to think back to my school day's. Guy's, no sideburns! Shirt tails tucked in, belts required. Girls, no hem-lines above the knees etc! Girls in pants, no way! My daughter, and son attended the same school, and the dress codes were so much relaxed!

Not for school, but for everyday hanging out...we used to take an extra large scarf, fold it over into a triangle, safety pin the apex to a leather choker, and tie the other two corners around the back. Voila, a quick and dirty halter top! Pair that with a pair of hiphugger jeans shorts with a wide belt and of course the same leather sandals Khan was wearing. And of course aviator frame sunglasses. We were cool!
Sorry, no pics available.
