Everybody Wang Chung Tonight!
This past weekend Youngest was invited to a 'Totally Awesome 80's Party." Come in Costume!
Please enjoy the following conversation-
Me- Well, that sounds like fun.
Youngest- I know! Mom- you were alive in the 80"s right? How old were you? Do you know what someone younger would wear from the 80's?
Me- No- I have no idea....OF COURSE I DO!! I was a lady of the 80's! Man- that was my decade!I totally have you covered on this one....
Youngest- Well- let's Google some images just to be sure....
Cut to Saturday night. Our house became Beauty Central for a few of the party goers. Eldest did hair- I was in charge of make-up! Can I just say- that it was TOTALLY fun coming up with a costume and creating their looks...but there is something humbling about your kid needing to dress up- in an outfit from your younger era. I remember 50's costume parties being the rage when I was younger and my mom kind of getting excited coming up with the 'right look."
See for yourselves.....
Youngest is sporting the "Madonna."
This creation is the "Faux-Hawk.' It actually turned out really well.
This sweet gal wanted the "Farrah Fawcett." When I told her that Farrah was more late 70's she really didn't care. She just wanted her long lockes curled and we tied a scarf as a headband and called it a day!
We had a couple of "Jane Fonda's" and "Flashdances" going on...and a few Madonna/Cyndi Lauper looks too. The girls really had a lot of fun putting it altogether!
Cause....Girls Just Wanna Have Fuuuunnnnn! Girls just wanna have fun!!!
