Last Friday night, my dear friend Pia celebrated her 40th birthday with a fabulous party bearing the 80s era theme. I got super excited when I first read the invitation and had a whole lot of fun going shopping for some pieces for me to channel my 80s style. I was aiming for Paula Abdul/Duran-Duran baggy pants look back in the 80s and wished I could have found a more colorful bomber jacket instead but this one from H&M was close. The pants were my favorite. The polka-dots were spot on and even if I may not use them anymore (maybe around the house as they were very comfortable!) they were perfect for the party.
You see, I spent most of my significant years in the 80s (I was between 10 and 20 during that decade) and they hold a lot of great memories. I remember perfectly sporting a mullet, silly shoulder pads, fish nets and leg warmers over a pair of colorful leggings while dancing at some local discotheques. I had to have my hair permed to achieve that perfect mullet look ala Sheena Easton as my hair was so straight and boy, did I look ridiculous but honestly, I would trade anything just to re-live those days again and last Friday was a huge treat! Happy Birthday, Pia! Welcome to the big 40 club!
