They do like to liven things up a bit in the office, and this week, some insane person decided we needed an 80’s day! And with £80 of vouchers on offer for best outfit, I raided my cupboard. I’m comfortable with my look; this is the most confident I’ve felt leaving the house for over 20 years! And for once the weather was conducive to the occasion: Humid makes the hair go frizzy.
My team were on top form - we won the quiz; Sue won a photo quiz and I won the fancy dress!!! For my ’authentic’ outfit - the tee-shirt is actually about 24 years old, so is the hair scarf. It was shared with another 80’s reject - who’d managed to find a big frilly blouse to match her headscarf - but £40’s not bad for getting dressed is it?
As they say - been there, done that, bought the tee-shirt, yes, really - that’s them, just there; you can't even see the snakebite stains. I never bought programmes from gigs, just something practical I could wear! Maze, New York Skyy, Bobby Womack, Roy Ayers, plus my Caister and Bournemouth weekender ones too.
