An Eighties Party! Right Here, Right Now!

It's Eighties Day at Wonders Never Cease!
So get out your high top sneakers and pump up the hair!

Hey, those are some of my students from High Point High School! Who turned the clock back to 1987? Let's see. If they were 17 then, now they'd be...39 years old?

Well that just ruined my day. I'd better mosey back to my rocking chair now.

I suppose since I blasted their acid washed denim all over the internet, it's only fair I show you what their science teacher looked like.
Prepare yourself.
My big hair is deep and wide, deep and wide.
A veritable fountain flowing deep and wide.

That's a little humiliating.
Then again, it reminds me that I was barely older than they were, just stepping out as an adult on my own.
Starting my own little family.

(Help me, somebody. My hair deflated.)
And spoiling Baby Katie rotten.

Hot short shorts, honey! People, those are corduroy. Can you believe it?

Wondering why I'm doing this?
It's Spirit Week at Ben's high school and I'm trying to remind myself what makes the decade of Members Only jackets deserve a dress up day of its own.
Okay, I'm convinced now!
So I've got a challenge for you, if you're game. Post an 80's photo of you on your own blog--or two or three or a dozen-- and be sure to tell me in my comments so we can all stop by your place for a visit! We can have a little 80's party of our own this weekend! I'd love to see your eighties look, even if you were in diapers, you young'un you!

Need some more inspiration? How about this?

Have a fun weekend, y'all!
Love, Becky

Holy cow! That took me back! Maybe sometime I'll have to post some of my rockin' 80's past.

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

Ah, the acid washed jean jacket and mullet, the big hair, I am your 80's kin, Becky!

Susan said...

Be careful what you ask for Missy. I just posted my 80's shots. Can't say I didn't warn you.

Your pictures are so cute and who doesn't remember those crazy corduroy shorts? Too, too much.

Enjoy your weekend!

Rebecca Ramsey said...

Okay people, you MUST run, not walk over to Susan's site and see her man in silver spandex, not to mention her amazing big haired self, with TEAR DROP STICKERS on her face, no less!
I'm so happy.

I have been paying people loads of money to keep my 1980's photos off the web! My hair could only be fully appreciated with an aerial photo.

Hi Becky,

Juliette here. Hubby and I laughed so hard when I read your comment. I may have to get back up on the ladder. Kind of romantic in a sick way-hehe.

Loved this post. I will have to find some pics. I know I didn't have big hair. I was working for Clinique and had short hair. I did have padded shoulders though.


The Things We Carried said...

A true blast from my past! I was a teen in the eightees.

May Vanderbilt said...

I'm afraid I was born in 78 so that means I missed most of the 80s. Oh if only I had been a teenager so I could have REALLY enjoyed it.

Awesome blast back to the past.

Oh my.........How I remember the days of acid wash and big hair. The 80's were not kind to lots of us.
