The 80s Post

I was born in the 70s and I grew up in the 80s. Having done so I now feel very strongly that the 90s and the 2000s were not very exciting in comparison. Particularly when it comes to the clothes.

We had an office party the other day, and it was themed. This is the first time in my life I'm attending an office party that has a theme AND a possibility that people might actually adhere to the theme. The theme was "the 80s". Having just started work in this office, I thought I could lie low, stay under the radar and show up sans fancy dress but after the 5th person asked me what I was going to wear, and after I discovered that my room mate had already ordered not one, but two costumes for this party, I realised I might actually have to put on my game face.

So The Husband obligingly googles a bunch of web pages with people wearing clothing from the 80s. I have to say it was a real blast from the past. We went through page after page of material and there was just so much out there beyond Bananarama and the A-Team that I was dazzled. I forgot how much fun it was to get dressed when I was a teenager. Who could forget the ever-present denim jacket? And the leg-warmers with the faux aerobic gear. Awesome stuff!!

In the end, we knocked it down to:

- a big thick hairband with a chunky ribbon at the side
- a "The Smiths" T-shirt
- a ripped denim skirt
- fluorescent socks
- white canvass sneakers

Having made these rather difficult decisions, I opened my wardrobe, pulled out all the items in question and put them in a little bag to bring to work.

When it comes to clothes, the ones in 1 B.C. have the best idea: go au naturel. That one will never go "out of fashion", plus, it's the ultimate in sexy. :D

Ok, so I didn't go for the party in the end so no pics - true story! We really did have all the stuff in our wardrobe after all. Not too shabby for 2 people who grew up in the 80s, but fancied themselves rather hip in the 90s.
