1984

In celebration of my parents’ 25th wedding anniversary, my siblings and I are throwing a surprise party, with a “This is Your Life”-type movie and a surf-and-turf menu. And, we’re dressing up like it’s 1984 (the year they wed). There are few things I enjoy more in life than dressing up, be it for a fancy occasion or a costume party, so I have been doing my research in preparation for the big day.

For my two brothers I’m thinking: Wayfarers, headbands, peg-legged jeans and either a tie over a Hawaiian or a Polo and jacket:

For my sister and me: leg warmers over stirrup pants (obviously), oversize and off-the-shoulder sweatshirts or T-shirts tied asymmetrically in a knot and crimped hair.

Oh, and lots and lots of hair spray for everyone.

  1. If only you could get the white suede outfit with fringe from Can’t Buy Me Love! I hope you and your sister were rocking scrunchies…cool idea!

    • Such an iconic outfit from the one of the best movies ever! Nice pop-culture reference 🙂
