So this year, since I have no problem making fun of myself, I am following through with what I said in my “Q of the day – for flashback fashionistas” post a couple of weeks ago.
Then I pulled out the 80s flashback skirt.
The roars of laughter from [my wife Kate] were, needless to say, enough to scare the dogs. Now I started laughing (I definitely had to have been listening to Journey when I placed the order). Since this was a fire sale, there were only limited sizes available so I ordered it in the size smaller than I thought I could wear, thinking later on maybe be able to get into it. When Kate zipped me up – holy hell, it fit!
Anyway, so now I have this retro skirt I bought on a lark I can’t figure out where I would wear it (save Halloween, or an 80s party?). Is this a fashion mistake? Am I having mid-life fashion crisis issues? LOLOLOL. Well, I turn 47 on July 8, so maybe so. Oh hell, it’s summer, I should just wear it on my birthday.
Yes, I am wearing this to the office on Thursday; perhaps I will allow a photo to be taken. I have to see how ridiculous I look before any cameras are allowed to be broken. What a way to enjoy 47 – winding back the clock to the 80s for the hell of it.
