This was my friend Anita's 30th birthday party - notice how we all have side ponytails? Ha! Crimped hair was all the rage in the 80s. Gotta love that. Velvet and one-shoulder were also big in the 80s. And do I spy puffy paint and jelly bracelets??
I'm LOVING the splatter paint dress and the black lace fingerless gloves with a bright red dress. Our man is styling classic 80s shades and jacket. Also, in the background, check out the bright blue skirt on the left and the headband in the back. Classic.
