Snooki just got a retro jersey shore makeover (leopard and poof included)

Nicole Polizzi has made a complete 180 in the style department since her summer experiences at the Jersey Shore — never forget the leopard and the poof. But for one day, the Snooki & JWOWW alum returned to her Seaside Heights–esque glam roots.

“Blast from the past,” the MTV vet captioned the fabulous throwback Instagram image above. “Such a fun shoot today! Can’t wait to share with you guys.”

Yep, the iconic animal print is here and in full force — and so is the half-up, half-down voluminous ’do. Sure looks like our gal is ready for a trip to Karma and a fist-pumping session with all of her roomies.

In addition, Nicole added another photograph from her retro makeover and declared “she’s back bitches.” Oh, indeed.
