I Love the 80's

It's undeniable.  I am a child of the 80's.  And I know this because I see 80's fashions coming back into style, and while most people scoff, I love it!  (On a side note, there are some decidedly 90s styles coming back, too: overalls!  flannel! And - wait for it - scrunchies!  But that's a whole glorious topic for another post).

Lately I'm seeing 80's influences all around, even in fancy schmancy homecoming & prom dresses!  And I honestly can't get enough.  I was browsing the dress selection at, and came across this 80's-inspired, fluffy confection of a dress.  With a train!  And just like that, I'm humming Like A Virgin and looking up videos of Michael Jackson doing the moonwalk.  I may be well out of high school and college, but don't think I'm not wracking my brain trying to think of an appropriate place to wear this.  The best I can come up with is 80's night at a club.  But let's be honest - 80's fashions > 80's music, so I probably won't be hitting up 80's night anytime soon.  It all seems so unfair - in the 80's I was too young to wear any of these styles, and now that they're back in fashion I'm too old.  Sometimes irony sucks.

Which reminds me - anyone need a prom date by any chance?  It'll be really fun!  I'll show you and your friends how to do the MC Hammer dance.  And then I'll explain who MC Hammer is....
