I have so many more pictures of me at the height of my dork-dom, but tonight all I grabbed was the album from when I was 18. The picture was taken in 1991, just shortly after I graduated high school. I was actually coming out of the dorkiness by then, believe it or not.
It is the infamous clogging outfit. The picture doesn't show them, but we also wore red bloomers with lace on the rear-end. Like what you put on your baby when you dress 'em up at Easter - satin panties with lace on the hiney. In the pics I'm only wearing my Keds, but we wore clogging shoes to dance in. Of course, we didn't wear them until we actually got to a performance because clogging shoes are like souped-up tap shoes and make a whole lot of noise.
This next picture shows only a small amount of the flaring capabilities of the skirt. Oh yes, when we'd spin, that puppy'd flare straight out, making us actually thankful for the lacy bloomers.
So there you have it - Everyone's favorite redneck diva in her clogging dress. Yep. I was a dork.
And just for the record - Small Town Starlit had one, too. I doubt she'll share a picture with us, because most of the time she didn't clog willingly, but if I looked hard enough, dug deep enough, I could probably find a picture of her in one as well. BUT, being the nice cousin that I am, I will refrain from posting embarrassing pictures of her. Well . . . at least until this year's Christmas party. Because if she sings karaoke again, I can't be responsible for the pictures that will come of that.
Happy Tuesday everyone! If you decide to get dorky with us, post your pic and then let Os know in the comments!
