Last night I went to an 80s night.
I was surprised at how easy it was to find the costume from my own wardrobe.
Now either fashions haven’t moved on…or I am living in a fashion time warp.
I suspect the latter.
When my mother worked in an office in the 70s there was a woman working there called Dot. (which is a great name in itself)
As young person, Dot was a mysterious and interesting woman. She had her hair in a roll and wore very red lipstick that stuck to cups. She smoked and wore a lot of jewellery. Always very glamorous with tight blouses and pencil skirts. She looked as if she had stepped out of the 1940s. I am guessing she was probably in her fifties, as I am now, and that she was stuck in the time from when she discovered her identity as a 20 something.
So this week I may take a closer look at my wardrobe and question my penchant for large hoopy earings , and a that general Cyndi Lauper look, in case any teenagers are out there feeling sorry for me.
