Lately, I've been a bit wistful and nostalgic so I poured it out into another Polyvore set.
I'm a snotch homesick and since my vacation plans are all up in the air, I've been thinking about planning a trip to Orange County to visit my girlfriend, Chris. I've been working like crazy and yesterday I worked just shy of a twelve hour day. So I'm tired. And tired of the cold. (Don't believe the hype about how gorgeous it is on the West Coast right now because Oregon ain't. I wake up to freezing fog every morning and ride into icy wind on my way to work.)
All of this adds up to a cranky, maudlin Lambchop and nobody likes that.
Anyway. I give you an idea of how I dressed during the end of the 80s. I'm not super thrilled with this set only because I had a hard time finding a decent pic of a KNAC shirt that would even show up. The shirt is VERY important. KNAC was THE station you listened to in Southern California if you liked hard rock/metal. It had a notoriously weak and unreliable signal and was braodcast from Long Beach but once you tuned in, you got to rock hard and be entertained. It was a godsend for this metal girl in not cool at the time Orange County.
You had to own one of the shirts and plaster everything you could with their bumper stickers. (All of my binders were covered as well as my skateboard.) I was over the moon when I finally got my shirt. I have a lot of great memories of KNAC both as a listener and dedicated stalker of on-air personalities. But, those are stories for another time.
