I searched for these photos like a woman possessed yesterday … a total blast from the past in the 80’s.

Celebrating Lynn and Richards Engagement | Me, Noleen, Norma & Lynn I totally did the ‘sexy secretary’ look as often as possible …black pencil skirt, black stockings – I loved this shirt – it was a body suit with a chiffon cross over drape over the front … seen similar ones recently. As you can see I wore my hair very short back then. Some days I’m tempted to go short again, but its much more work.
Jacqui’s graduation ball from Kelly Greenoaks Secretarial College – I loved those gloves, I had them in white and black.
We had the best night ever – we danced ’til dawn, drank bucket loads of tequila and the next morning I went to face my last day at Nedbank Rosettenville Branch – I was probably still intoxicated.
This dress – oh my goodness – I fell so in love with from the moment I saw it – I had so many compliments paid to me over this dress – I always loved a little drama when it came to my clothing. The description was ‘black evening dress with peacock tail’ – I clearly remember the big silver earrings as well. Aaah, where did that girl with all that kick ass confidence go to! No idea why I am looking so darn serious though.

Bad me in the 80’s was already a smoker – with my Mom on my sister Noleen and her hubby Gordon’s wedding day. We had such a great time. Much emotions followed the meetings of that day.

      My pleasure Dawn – think we should get all the 80s kids to share their looks.

    The 80’s were hilarious! I remember wearing the most outrageous outfits too. I remember a spotty rara skirtI wore all the time, I loved it. I too became smoker but thankfully it didn’t last too long. Thanks for sharing!

    Awwh! You’re still such a beauty! So glad to see these photos of you. Sweet.
    Retro everything these days. If we are not to wear a trend the second time around, there is a point where one has nothing to wear! I’m there, I think, so I’m wearing past looks anyway!

      You know what Jan – life is short – if it feels good … wear it. I think I should find myself a designer to recreate the peacock tailed dress for me … just because I liked it and I think I could almost get away with wearing it again … almost! 🙂
