When I read Cass' blog post about what she wore in the 1980's I just had to join in the fun. I must say I LOVED the 80's. Apart from having a nightmarish teacher for two years of primary school who had it in for me, I had a wonderful childhood. I was a bit of a ratbag back then.
Here are a few of my favourite outfit pics from many moons ago........
The above pic was taken in about 1980
With my sister on the left, my hubby's sister in the middle & me on the right.
Yes Mr P & I go WAY back which is kind of cool because we share many of the same memories of growing up.
Classic early 80's styling
My sister on the top left sporting a cowgirl look
3 friends in between, 2 with pink ponchos
Everyone has long socks & handbags
Me on the right in a frock that's way too short & carrying my trusty poncho, also wearing white wedges
I did love a bit of velvet, & socks with pompoms. I'm sporting a stylish side pony on a pink billy cart.
This was a fleece skirt & top outfit. Carrying my Strawberry Shortcake doll. My sister was looking more demure with a huge collar
Peep toe shoes must have been all the rage
All matchy matchy with some friends.
Cotton skirts with big pockets & matching tops
My sister & I in pastel overalls
I'm on the left in corduroy knickerbockers, long socks & matching beanies.
We are all excitedly clutching our curly straws.
How I love dress up days. That's me in a wig on 'Asian day'.
Some attractive pleated denim. Funny that my sister & I both broke a bone around the same time.
The bird thing goes way back.
More pleated denim & a pink polo shirt
I remember getting these koala jumpers for our birthdays. They were 3 dimensional with real fur koalas on a tree. I would sit there petting it for ages.
We were all dressed up to go to a rock concert. Me in a red & white snowflake jumper & tube skirt, my sister rocking that koala jumper again in a double pink ensemble.
She's gonna hate me for posting this!
Must say I LOVED the 80's
but the fashion not so much!
Thanks to Cass Can Sew for the inspiration!
