Old Photo Friday with Bonus Yes, I Still Have It AND Who Wore it Better!

I was digging around the ol' photos, and I found this great one: me at my college graduation.
Photo by my brother.
And wearing my cool vintage 1950s shades. While I insisted on wearing them to the graduation ceremony, I remember my mom telling me to take them off for the photos or, and I quote, "You'll regret it when you look back at the photos one day."
Photo by my brother.
I didn't take the sunglasses off, not out of defiance or disagreement with my mother, but just because I forgot.

For years afterwards, when I looked at my graduation photos I would hear my mother's words, and I would worry, "She was right! I am going to regret this one day! And now there's nothing I can do about it!"

But seeing these pics today,and it's been close to twenty years now, I'm happy to report that I'm totally OK with it.

And would you believe I still have those sunglasses? And I can now happily add this post to the Yes, I still have it archives.

And my son loves to wear them, fondly remembered now as Mommy's "graduation glasses."

Which of course means I have to ask, who wore it better?

And Ziggy? When the time comes - please, please, please don't even think about wearing them to your college graduation.

I don't know about the sunglasses, but Ziggy definitely wore the ALIENS? t-shirt better.
