Ooooh I wanna dance with somebody…

img059I sure did, at the ripe old age of 4 that is. My mum often tells me how I used to dance around the loungeroom to none other than Whitney Houston.

So recently on one of my favourite blogs Mummy Mayhem, Jodie took us all on a trip back to the 80’s, delving into the weird and wonderful fashion of the decade! You can check it out HERE.

So what did the 80’s mean to me? Well firstly it meant being born. Yep in 1983 I decided to grace the world with my presence. Then I was introduced to the colour pink. Or maybe it was just in built in me. Either way I was somehow destined to be obsessed with the girliest of girly colours! My fashion of the 80’s 80s3was chosen for me by Mum, with the stipulation from me that everything was of course pink. God forbid I went to preschool not wearing pink. No-siree I was having none of that.

I discovered the telephone at an early age in the 80’s and spent many a time yacking away to my Nonna. I learnt the concept of sharing when my baby brother came along in 1986, much to my disgust, after specifically asking for a sister.

80s1I discovered Whitney Houston in 1987, and Kylie Minogue in 1988. Ah those were the days of the spinning around the loungeroom and singing along to those catchy pop songs! And in 1989 I started Kindergarten! So after sharing my gorgeous *cough* embarrasing 80’s pics with you, I’d also like to share the music!

So while Whitney’s gone a little bit crazy in recent years, she still has the most amazing set of pipes! That’s vocal chords boys, settle down! To this day I still love that song, and even wanted to use it somewhere in our wedding. But unfortunately I learnt early on before marriage about comprimise and sadly Whitney was not a part of our special day. And sadly neither was Kylie. But damn it, they’ll be a part of Puff.

So ladies and gentlemen, take a deep breath, get your hair permed, get out your teasing comb, and of course the good old microphone hairbrush and belt it out with me….

    You are such a girly-girl. Love it!

    Although, you are making me feel slightly old. *sigh*

    Thank you, that was fun!
    I’ve gotta say, I love your taste. Not only do I love that Whitney song (had that record and played it to death), and Kylie (I’m a massive fan, seen her live and have all of her records and CDs) but I too love the colour pink. My wedding dress was pink and the first thing I said when the midwife told me my 2nd baby was a girl was, “I can buy pink stuff!”
    Good on Jodie for setting this challenge, I took it on too…http://doireallywannablog.blogspot.com/2009/12/my-80s-fashion-60s-inspired.html
