My Retro Dilemma
So I am doing the photography for an event this Friday night. The event is 80â€™s themed and I honestly have nothing 80â€™s, not one damned thing. If I had it my way Iâ€™d go totally punk or Iâ€™d go Madonna circa Lucky Starâ€¦you know with all the black lace, gloves and lots of hair. Sadly I donâ€™t have the money to put that together.
The only 80â€™s stuff Iâ€™ve ever owned were when I was 10 or younger so none of it fits me, obviously. Iâ€™m tempted to just buy leggings and a big t-shirt to cut a hole out of the top of it. However buying a big t-shirt when you are plus size is challenging. I also donâ€™t want to spend much money on an outfit I probably wonâ€™t wear again.
I did see a sort of 80â€™s style skirt or one that could pass for that at Old Navy but I have yet to go out of my way to see about getting it. Given that I will be doing the photography the entire night I also need something comfortable, which means I will be wearing my chucks (they pass for several decades thank you) instead of jelly shoes.
Any ideas? Maybe I could just go Ally Sheedy via The Breakfast Club.
