Welcome to Aqua Blue Heaven Friday! With the recent passing of legendary 80's teen movie-making sensation John Hughes, I thought I'd homage the hell out of him. So to pay my respects in the only way I know how, I've decided to make this week's theme "1980's Prom" (jebus help us all).
(PS. Listen up people: enjoy it now, because the next time I ever show off 80's prom dresses will be never. Nothing against those who enjoy this particular style of dress (stupid hipsters), as 80's prom dresses can be really...neat...you know, with all the lace and matching fingerless gloves and...you know what? I'm sorry I can't go on pretending to enjoy 80's prom dresses. DO. NOT. LOVE. I'm just doing this as a quick sprint down memory lane, plus, wasn't there like, a prom or party in every John Hughes film? Whatever. I'm saying there was.)
Please ignore my grumpy inner monologue with myself and enjoy this week's Aqua Blue Heaven's 1980's prom party...nightmare...I mean happy fun party time! (Double PS: I like all the sellers represented below (just not 80's vintage), so don't be thinking otherwise, ya hear? That's OK. I'm not mad at you. Let's spike the punch and make the meathead jocks and cheerleaders nervous and disgusted when we rock out to "Rebel Yell" on the dance floor. Prom RULES.)
