outfit of the (yester)day(bird): 80s flashback




shirt ~ Ebay
shoes ~ thrifted
skirt ~ Target
scarf ~ gift
bracelet, earrings ~ ??
gloves ~ Eva's

i went to a charity 80s themed dance party a few weeks ago. a friend of mine works for Get Your Rear in Gear, and asked if i wanted to go. last minute, i found a sitter and decided to head out. i thought i'd have to run to the thrift store to find an outfit, but fortunately (sadly?) i had everything i needed at home to create this costume.

there was a band there that played all 80s music, and everyone was doing their very best running man and cabbage patch moves. i will neither confirm nor deny whether or not a small circle of women formed around me as i was doing my very best roger rabbit moves to the band's mash-up of ice, ice, baby and under pressure. ok, i'll confirm.

it was a blast, and for a very worthy cause. if you live in the twin cities and want to go next year, let me know...it's definitely worth it!
