connie 's Thoughts:

My senior photos in high school were a hot tragic mess. Let’s just say that the next time a photographer in elastic-waisted khakis and a flock-of-seagulls haircut asks you if he can “do something creative” with your photos and asks you to pretend to be running away from something in a ballgown, JUST SAY NO. You will end up with pictures of yourself in said ballgown running out of some photoshopped sheet music.

Anyways, here’s senior photos v2.0. The jean jacket is actually a heavy jean shirt that I thrifted from Everyday People in Minneapolis. And trust me: after thrifting all over the United States, the wares in the Midwest are topnotch.

Edit: Just for clarification, this isn’t an actual senior photo—I’m three years deep into college and this was an impromptu photo at a BARE shoot.

I find that little boys' or girls' denim shirts aren't bulky like jean jackets, and are perfectly thin to do some heavy duty distressing to. Plus, I have the body of a 12 year old boy, so the fit is frustratingly, annoyingly perfect.

I never know how to wear jean jackets but you pulled it off stunningly! Great senior photos. Mine were so bad that after I graduated my parents had me go in and retake them!

hahah I'm super jealous of this as your senior picture. jean jackets always make me think high school, for some reason. you've also made me even more convinced I need a pair of doc martens! haha

Oh. Don't worry. He also had me put on a tube top to take a picture of me looking over my shoulder. It looked like I was naked. My mother was NOT thrilled.

Wow I would never looked to the midwest for thrifting, and as for that senior picture that description just made my day. Oh and by the way, I love your glasses!

It's because the whole 90's grunge thing hasn't really hit middle America yet. Sometimes, the culture lag is something to smile about :)
