177/365: For the Love of Leg Warmers

Today I made:

a "totally rad" costume...

A friend of ours is turning the big 4-0 this week and we are celebrating tomorrow by helping him relive some of the memories of his youth, complete with a reunion of his old band. We're going to pretend (for a day) that we're not too old to do one of those costume pub crawls that my hometown is so well known for. Our group costume theme is the 80s.

My husband is the king of costumes, so there's no way he was going to let me get away with not going all out. I was only in elementary school in the 1980s, but I rocked my fair share of stone wash denim, side ponytails, friendship bracelets, stirrup pants and jelly shoes. I could have gone so many ways with this, but in the end I decided to embody the "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" spirit. So I spent the afternoon putting together my version of an outfit from the age of excess. Think leg warmers, fingerless gloves, petticoats, huge earrings and neon.

Embarrassing photos coming soon.
