Embarrassing Outfits – 80’s Party

What a theme! I had the perfect photo – which always gets Sexy Hubby into stitches – but sadly it has been used already to illustrate my “A Date With Bon Jovi” post.

Instead I went not too far back in time, just five years. In 2007 I was still living in Switzerland and it was the year I organised a big 80’s party in the village hall. I had been wanting to have one forever and decided not to delay it any longer. We all had a blast dancing to the songs we once loved, Simple Minds, Pet Shop Boys, Kim Wilde, U2 to name but a few, as well as a whole lot of one hit wonders! A truly brilliant evening, which ended in the small hours…

I went dressed as Madonna. In her “Like A Virgin” days…

And I might as well share the embarrassment and also post a photo featuring my sister and some of my friends!

Actually, after browsing through the photos to pick these two, I now feel like throwing such a party again!

      She certainly was! My best friend and I often used her outfits as inspiration… 😉

      They are actually leggings… And yes, I still have them (not something I wear every day!!). The only thing missing from that outfit is the skirt, which disappeared into First Daughter’s bedroom, never to be seen again, so technically, it would not be too difficult to recreate that look for the next party! 😉

      Thanks, you cannot beat lace tights – or leggings – can you? 😉 It was funny to go back in time, and as I said, the idea of doing it again is growing on me…

      Thank you, I was quite proud of my outfit… 😉 And yes, the 80’s rocked. *sigh*

    Haha, I was obsessed with Madonna and would dress like that everyday! Loving the friend in the luminous green leggings! We actually wore all that stuff didnt we! Lol!

      We did indeed!! 😉 There was an “80’s revival” theme on in H&M around the time of the party, so it was quite easy to get kitted out!

      Thanks! 😉 My daughters were a bit puzzled: “Did you REALLY dress like this, Mummy?” LOL!
