80's Party

Double Popped Collars & Cable Knits

Gucci Loafer & Legwarmers

The girls primarily wore neon colors and sequins.

and the guys went with madras plaid and pocket squares...were they even dressed up?

Of course there was vintage Lilly.

867-5309...the party was complete with 80's jams.

Despite JCW being out of town I still managed to make it home with an order of Disco Fries...he would have been so proud!

I was a child of the eighties and my most beloved item had to be my Michael Jackson glove. What was your favorite thing to wear in the eighties?

Not sure what my favorite thing to wear back in the 80's? Maybe my Benetton clothing, CB jacket, K-swiss and/or Tretorns? Seems SO long ago, lol!

Disco Fries! So many people have no idea what they are. I wrote about them on my blog awhile back and had to explain what they are...a little piece of heaven.

Did you go to St.Elmo's for burgers later that evening?

Disco fries have become a very unhealthy obsession of mine! My sister was literally born and raised on Benetton clothing. I had a neon pink CB with a neon green stripe...I thought it was the coolest! xx

Add-a beads :)

Sarah said...

My favorite thing was probably my Swatch watch with a pink scented watchband!

Mrs. Kristen Faber said...

Swatch watch for sure and my parachute pants with pink zippers. Oh, and we wore esprit like crazy!

Sarcasm and Cocktails said...

I had a pair of rainbow striped leg warmers that rarely left my legs. So shameful.

Summer Wind said...

Loving these pictures! This party looks like it was a blast!

Maryland Magnolia said...

My Guess jeans or my Swatch watch! Or maybe my Tretorns :)

Looks like a "way cool" party :)

Fun to see the 80s prep style!

Mrs. Kindergarten said...

Oh I adored my add~a~beads, swatch watch collection, and bermuda bags to match EVERYTHING! Life was good then, and still is now! Great party and post!

Love,
Mrs. Kindergarten

Oh the 80's...I used to have neon lace ribbons in my hair like Madonna, much to my mothers chagrin. The party looks pretty cool dude! LOL

Lori said...

What a riot! I remember my leg warmers. :)

Pink Champagne said...

So fun! Love those bright colors, but can we please forget the hair (forever)???

Pink Martini said...

My favorite things of the 80's? My husband!! And of course my Papagallo espadrilles and my Bermuda bag.
