Back to the 80s Scamp-Style

I love the 80s. Here's Scamp with her 80s oversized sweatshirt dress complete with pink tool, black tights and side ponytail (which you can't see!!). Thanks Stacy (aka Vader's Mom) for the adorable outfit.

This brings back memories of when my sister and I were in elementary school. We used to get dressed up in our "dance clothes," usually a tutu or oversized sweatshirt and tights with blue and white striped leg warmers and red and white sweatbands! We would turn off all the lights in the house and put on the Michael Jackson Thriller album. We loved the album cover with pre-plastic surgery Michael and his black leopard looking quite hot!! Those were the days!!!!

Reminensce with me! Thank you to my cousin LeChelle for sending me this forward: You Know You Grew Up in the 80s/early 90s if: (NOTE: I only posted my favorites. It was WAY too long.)
