Our 80s Costumes

As I mentioned in my last post, Allan and I were on our way to an 80s themed costume party. Not only was I finally going to be ROCKING leg warmers and crimped hair yet again, but Allan got to rock neon socks and crazy accessories too!

Check out our looks of the evening...

 Can you guys see Allan's cool seatbelt belt?  Still amazed that he got everything from Value Village.

What would be your ideal 80s outfit?

Acceptable In The....80s??

I am heading to an 80s party tonight and can not WAIT!

It's been so long since I've been to a theme party (I think my ugly Christmas sweater party was the last) but they are truly one of my favorite ways to get together with friends. Not only can you laugh at every one, to their face and get away with it BUT you can party in ways you might not have had the courage to do if you were dressed "normally".

With this in mind, I thought I would do a quick throw-back to the 80s and share with you some of my fave things from back in the day.

Man, I wanted to be Madonna.  She had amazing fluffy crimped hair and to-die-for red lips.  However, my mom would NEVER have let me rock a pointy bra.....ever.

My life was not complete without Lit-Brite.  Seriously, I can remember my sister and I playing this for hours.  Best time spent...

Okay, whoever said they hated slouch socks is a liar.  Easy to wear, super colorful and looked especially nice when wearing high heels!

Oh man.  I had such long, thick hair that I used to use a scrunchie everyday.  I would also put one around my ballet bun every dance class because, let's be honest, all the cool kids were doing it.  My favorite one was this sequined purple and blue scrunchie.

Stirrup pants!!!  My sister and I were obsessed with these bad boys.  I always wore them with this long purple sweater, crimpy hair and in a big side ponytail.  I was a rockstar.

Fanny packs.  Basically, the best invention ever.  So cool that people even use them today (think Coach...)  Anyway, I had a fluorescent pink one that I wore everywhere.  Especially when I went roller skating.  Ha

My absolute favorite show.  I am still just as confused now, as I was back then, about how there was only one female smurf....hmmmm.

What are some of your favorite 80s things?  Anything I missed?
