In her post How fucking old am I? Jenny Lawson aka The Bloggess asks, “Was it just my school where the senior portraits always looked like inexpensive glamour shots?”

Who’s more glamorous in their senior high school graduation photo, Jenny Lawson The Bloggess or me? Judge for yourself.

Jenny Lawson The Bloggess with Big Texas Hair, Bare Shoulders and Fur Stole vs Kitt O'Malley with Long Slightly Wavy Hair and Red Crushed Velvet Stole

Texas vs. Manhattan Beach, California. Fur stole? Nope. We wore crushed velvet. Big hair? Nope. I probably didn’t even blow mine dry. Why? It dried on its own. When I wore it long, it did take hours to dry, especially since it’s foggy at the beach. Still, it does eventually dry. Plus, unlike Jenny, I’m pretty sure I’m wearing my bra under the crushed velvet stole.
