If enough time has passed since that embarrassing high-school yearbook photo, or you've started to wonder "what was I thinking?" when looking back at your prom pic, then it's time to get over it and share your funny, wacky and outdated fashion from yesteryear. We're looking for everything from teased '80s hair and oversized corsages to baby-blue tuxedoes and ruffled shirts, so get those photos in and send ’em fast.

The Houston Press website is doing weekly and monthly roundups of the best photos from the Houston Press Flickr Pool, in addition to themed slideshows.
