You want big hair and parachute pants? A slight diversion from writing about writing.

In response to the comment on my previous post "1984" about expecting to see bigger hair, I bring you Big 1985 Hair:Can you tell Dynasty was influential? Looks like we're going to the Denver-Carrington Christmas party to double-team Alexis.

And Sarah Frances, I couldn't find the Christy/Davis prom pic but I came across this doozy. Prime 80s! I think we'd just had a few Bartles & Jaymes and were about to hit an Erasure concert. The Hammer Pants I'm wearing? Yeah, uh those would be neon green...

Davis and Peggy-Sorry to throw you under the bus.

The longer I look at this, the more perplexed I get. Why the neon Hammer Pants, oxford buttoned all the way up AND jean jacket. For the love of god, WHY???????????

Ok, you don't even want to go there with me. Alas, I don't have a scanner, otherwise I would kick your arse in this photo contest. Think sailor dress, izod from the kids department (they were cheaper and tighter),and too many sweater vests to count. All worn to a concerts like UB40. Thanks for bringing me back.

I don't have any photos from the party where I wore the black and white pilgrim top (shoulder pads like wings), black bolero hat, huge belt, and black miniskirt.

It kills me to this day.
