Any female who watched TV or read a magazine in the 1980s and 1990s surely remembers Barbizon! Barbizon suggested that each of us could "Train to be a model (or just look like one)."
The "models" on the commercial always wore the best acid-washed, pleated, zippered-ankle jeans, and had curly, crimpy hair. I was dying to go to Barbizon Modeling School to learn how to properly swing a shopping bag as I spun myself around in a carefree circle at the mall.
Unfortunately, I was relegated to hobbies that involved reading books and learning stuff. Moms are such a buzzkill sometimes.
