Prom Night with Best Friends, 80's Style!

No, I am not flashing back to my Prom.  For two reasons.  One, my Prom picture is TERRIBLE and I hope to never look that way again.  Two, I was in High School in the 90's and therefore was never able to indulge in all things florescent, big, crimped, and glittery for Prom (though thanks to Molly Ringwald, I thought it would have been awesome!)  Nope, this was the 80's recreated and oh how rad it was! (Yes, rad, don't pretend like you never said it).

This past weekend the two fabulous girls on my left and I surprised the fabulous girl on my right in San Francisco for her 80's inspired engagement party.  We traveled in from Portland, Chicago, and Orange County to dance the night away to some of the best the 80's had to offer while flaunting our fabulous fashion finds from vintage stores and Forever 21 (weird these are in the same sentence.  It almost pains me).  And even though I did not win Prom Queen,  I still had a phenomenal time.   

The best part of the weekend is that we were all able to spend some time together.  With living in four different cities, it just doesn't happen very often.  These three girls are the best BF's a girl could have and we have been through the good, the bad and the ugly together.  Dating, boyfriends, fights, make ups, divorce, engagements, miscarriage, bad haircuts, marriages, death, children.  The list goes on and on.  They truly are a piece of me and have been instrumental in the person I have become.  I love them dearly and think of them as sisters.  Plus, we can totally laugh at ourselves when the lame 12 year olds at the bar make fun of our outfits.  (If I was a bitch, I would say we looked better than they did in their normal clothes but I am not a bitch so I am not going to say it.).  Anyway...

Happy Engagement E &J and congratulations again!


  1. I love it! Love the comment about the 12 year olds - hysterical. I didn't know you were in my city! Where did you guys go?
