Alright. First of all, it’s Friday, and you DESERVE a nice laugh. Second, it’s not what you think. We don’t ACTUALLY wear these out to the bars (but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t happened – wink, wink). I’m about to get deep, or as deep as fashion talk can go…
We’re so used to seeing what “IS” fashionable or what “SHOULD” be fashionable that we often forget what “WAS” fashionable. What I’m getting at is this: just because it isn’t HOT- FIRERY-FASHIONABLE today, doesn’t mean it never graced the pages of fashion magazines. Am I right? Or AM I RIGHT?!
And so, I leave you with a showcase of what “WAS” fashionable (or at least my best manifestation of what I think was fashionable) in the the decade in which I was brought into this glorious world. Blessed are the ladies of the 80′s, who rocked… glitz and glitter from head-to-toe, bows like nobody knows, and serious lace with style and grace (whoa, poet!). Enjoy some snapshots of 80′s Prom Night revisited in ’09:
Why, you ask? Why NOT, I answer? There’s no better way to celebrate the birthday of a baby of the 80′s, than to revive 80′s Prom Night – and that we did! A special thanks to Savers and Goodwill for pretty much outfitting the entire prom that night. Who needs history books when you have places like Savers and Goodwill to teach you everything you need to know about what went down 30 years ago?
Like I said before…just because it isn’t fashionable NOW, doesn’t mean it wasn’t fashionable THEN. I’d love hear about some of your THEN fashion favorites, so please do share!
If you laughed a bit (or even just cracked a smile), then my job is done.
