I couldn’t help but squeal with excitement when I saw the theme for this week’s Gallery was The Eighties.
I was a teen back in them there Eighties. A tall, gangly, fashion obsessed, geeky, ridunculous teen. Hah. Not a lot has changed really. Anyway,I think it was a great decade to live out those years. The music, the clothes, the technology, the political climate… it was all just so different. Edgy. New. Undiscovered, even?
Anyway, I’ve pulled out this photo from the vault that was recently sent to me by my bestie. We were all dressed up to go out to some party or another and had got ready at her sister’s house with help from those little cuties. It pretty much sums up my look during that period of my life:
- Big hair care of a perm and mousse… lots of mousse
- Lacy gloves
- Pixie boots (sadly they were not shown here so I can’t remember if I had on my pink or black ones)
- Bright cerise outfit, my colour of choice
Not sure, but I do believe my pal was going for the Cilla Black look that night.
