Denim jacket and pants

Mine is too big to put on this pedestal, not just physically, but mentally, figuratively, it’s big.

In 1987, I was considered a hair metal girl. There were certain things that I was very proud of. […] I was looking through my mother’s basement, and somehow these two items still remained. […]

We’re not done yet. Now, this was my jean jacket in junior high-high school. I put on the studs. […] My mother, being the wonderful mother that she is, sewed that onto the jean jacket for me. […] This was a labor of love. I thank you for visiting my childhood.
