Grunge Ain't Dead

I was an 80's baby but I was a 90's kid. Most of my formative and memorable years were spent in the decade of excess, of side high ponytails, of family computers, Bazooka Joe's and rock n' rollin' grunge. Though I never dressed up in grunge looks when I was growing up (I was more into baggy tops and hip hop shorts. *Cringes*), it's one of the styles that I fully embrace today. For my shoot with Edric, we went for a grunge theme, as evidenced in the photos above. Love how Edric was able to capture my crazy side and my awkward 'show-your-big-gums' smile. And the highlight of the photo shoot? Running away and hiding from nosy guards and riding a shopping cart (with some people ogling) to capture the 'money shot'.

It's always a fun and pleasurable experience hanging out with you, Edric. We definitely have to have that food trip. :)
