Lies!

Ok, you weren't a tomboy - but Bam-Bam still fits you better than Pebbles - amirite?

The art is by Olivia, have collected her images since the 80's. Put some cool collages together, but too risque to post here.
This the net; you're never more than a click away from hardcore porn.

Just post a link (with no thumbs) and give a warning.

My mom had these I called them (80's ladies) prints hanging up my whole childhood and when she had more money she had them matted and framed.
That stuff was everywhere in the 80's. Very minimalist, lots of clean lines. I think I still have a couple of generic ones I picked up right at the end of the decade. Mainstream art seemed to be influenced by 'Vogue'.

Yes, that's the book I have too TKO.

Logan-Olivia is easy to find on the 'net-she collaborates with her photographer husband. He takes the photos and she paints the pictures. Some of her models have been Pamela Anderson, Julie Strain and she does a lot of Bettie Page.

BAM are my initials, so it does fit better than Pebbles [Smile]

Muffy-I remember those prints. They used to do them on mirrors too.

BAM check this out?

http://www.etsy.com/listing/39582548/christine-rosamond-mirror-70s-1980-girl

insane the price??!

the artist died tragically in the 90's you can still buy some prints through her main website but for some reason they are hard to find? Well i'll inherit my moms someday haha.

I just loved the use of negative space it makes them so abstract.

I had a mirror by her that a friend gave me in the 90's. Guess I should have held onto it but it looked faded to me, which it may have been meant to look that way.

Your tale is a little like that of Dorian Gray. Poetic and yet... so sad.

I just thought of this today!

French Braids!

My buddy begged me today if she could french braid my hair.......it reminded me of lining up for the babysitter to french braid our hair.

Then i'm watching Weekend at Bernie's and there's Gwen on the beach with a french braid haha

and yes my hair is still in a french braid at the moment [Big Grin]

Ah, the French braids. I could only do my own hair in a French braid. Someone asked me to French braid hers, and I tried but it came out a mess, so I had to do a regular braid. I don't think I've French braided my hair since the early 90's.

Yesterday I picked up a pair of light grey skinny crop jeans. They are ankle length, or you can roll them up to a more cropped length. I also got a long tunic from the LC (Lauren Conrad) collection- it is so 80's inspired. It's purple with embellishments on the top down the side. Also picked up a long black dressier tunic. Both the tops and jeans are so 80's-ish.

Awesome score! I need to be on the lookout for these at the Goodwill and Salvatin army stores. Nice to see this thread come back.
