1980's Birthday Bash

This is the best photo of me, I think it says everything about who I am as a person and what I want to do in this life.

It took a private consultation in the bathroom with my 1987 yearbook, half a bottle of glitter hairspray with lots of blow drying and a suffocating amount of makeup to get me to look as good as I did in high school. All for the sake of my sister's 40th birthday party.

More photos to come.....

You look rad. Love the jean jacket with the pearls.

But what is that pinkness under the brooch? Did you slop some wine? Maybe it's just a satiny shadow. Musta been a great party.

I graduated in 1987, so I can say with all honesty: I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE REST OF THE PICTURES!

I enjoyed the eighties the big hair, the shoulder pads, the flowery dresses, it was a pretty romantic fun time. You look very pretty.

The pin & the collar! OMG. I'm having a flashback. My Grandmother was awesome about finding pins like that for me.

Oh, but your sister is soooo worth it.

We must have missed out on the brooch thing here on the West Coast. Or maybe I just wasn't trendy enough back then.
