"My awkward phase spanned a nine year period from second grade to sophomore year of high school. (Ouch!). The before photo is from freshman year of high school. This was, quite possibly, the climax of my awkward streak. The 'after' photo was taken a mere two and a half years... Continue reading

"Ohio, age 14, 2005. This was a school picture from my competitive spelling days. People would often tell my mother, sister, and brother that they were 'so beautiful'... then turn to me and ask if I was 'really smart.' Obviously, I was not -- a smart girl wouldn't have left... Continue reading

"I'd have to guess I was eight here or maybe ten, either way it was the late 90s and I was dressed like a bat, a sparkly bat. Don't worry, this wasn't how I normally dressed (at least not yet anyway), this was a costume for a dance recital which... Continue reading

"Backstory: This was taken during a kids' window-painting contest in the 'downtown' area of Baldwinsville, when I was in 4th grade. 'Twas an incredibly cold and rainy morning--but you'd never know it from that sassy smile, would you? Things that ARE painfully apparent: my weather-flattened frizzy hair, my SUPER! PUFFY!...

"This picture marks the era in which all photos of me were eventually discarded, around age 14. In fact it was only a couple of weeks ago when the last TRULY horrifying photo of me was thrown away by my Father. Needless to say I wasn't quite the lady-killer when... Continue reading

"Apparently I was super excited about my extra large glasses, bowl cut hair, and Old Navy flag t-shirt. This must have been a dress down day though, since I'm not wearing my trademark silver eyeliner... isn't everyone fashionable at 13?" -Melinda After the jump: Melinda today... Continue reading

"I was extremely sick and forced to sit for a family photo (hence me looking so unimpressed). Despite my older sister pinching me to try and get me to smile, I managed to maintain my dead-pan face. I am often told how much I look like the little boy from... Continue reading

"I present you, me, start of 6th grade: Sweater and pedal pushers, home-made by my mom. Ann Jillian haircut, that I just HAD TO HAVE! And beneath the droopy kneesocks I am wearing TOP-SIDER SHOES! Really, it does not get any hotter than this." -Gayle After the jump: Gayle today...... Continue reading

"Well, clearly it was a TRANSITIONAL time... Here I am in second grade in Houston with my second pair of glasses and my first (failed) attempt at Charlie's Angels wings. To be fair, it's actually just a grown out Dorothy Hamill. For my first pair of glasses, I insisted on... Continue reading

"It's okay if you think I was a boy; lots of people did. A fond memory of mine is a lady at a toy store telling me it was 'cool' for boys to like to play with Barbies while browsing with my Mother. At age 11, the day before picture... Continue reading

"I was 12 years old when this photo was taken in fall 2003 in Toronto. As you can tell by my grade seven school photo, I was blessed with endless geeky charm at the time! Just check out the slightly crooked glasses with plastic frames, the thick and oversized knit... Continue reading

"This one was taken in 1980, when I was 2. I believe that is a velour hoodie with Paddington Bear embroidered on the front, and the bathing suit speaks for itself. This was near the pool at our beach club in New Jersey." --Rob After the jump: Rob today... Mykonos... Continue reading

"I was in 6th grade in the smallest town ever in Texas. Apparently I thought the tight lipped squinty smile was really cool (along with my ever so stylish red grown up Brighton watch). My hair was down to my derriere and eventually I cut it that year. I think... Continue reading

"This is me in second grade in the halcyon days before I got my period and before my little hopes and ideals were crushed. (It’s also when I went by my 'slave name' Sarah Ellen Feldman. The year is 1969, the place is Miami, FL. My mom is 'away' (ahem)... Continue reading

"The year was 1992, and if you take a nine out of that you should get something close to my weight. I was a fat little kid somewhere around 200 lbs at 5'5 and wearing God knows what. Oh wait, that's the shirt with the fishing lures on it. I... Continue reading

"This picture was taken sometime in seventh or eighth grade at Disneyland. I commonly refer to junior high as 'The Ugly Years,' and they are horribly painful to look back on! My senior pictures thankfully turned out better." -Laney After the jump, Laney today... Continue reading

"This picture was taken at a high school marching band contest in which we had participated. I (Laura) clearly thought that having thick black glasses and extremely long hair was stylish. And Stef thought putting beads on her marching band hoodie would be unique touch. Our braces were also classy.... Continue reading

"In 1977 was 10, at Candia Lake in Northen Italy. I looked very much like one of those Italian heros from Romanzo Criminale. What can I say? My mum loved camel raincoats from Paris House JLB." -Marco After the jump: Mirror-shaded Marco today... "Now I am a 'Hot' Dad and... Continue reading

"This one was taken when I was in 7th grade. As a kid I spent years begging my mother to shave my head (she refused). Our compromise was this sort of fuzzy pageboy look that was accomplished with a flowbie. The icing on the cake were those two butterfly clips... Continue reading
