Hello, I'm Sasha and I'm a Plaidaholic!  
Friends, Romans, Fl*sters, look out I'm back! After suddenly realizing it's just over a month to A14, I was calm, rational and then I ran round the room like a headless chicken. I pondered what could I wear to dazzle both guest and attendees?  With that in mind I scoured my wardrobe, searching for inspiration and it hit me. I might have a little problem...

Eight plaid shirts? Seriously I have eight plaid shirts! You do realize, I probably have a bigger selection of plaid than the Winchesters? Although I'd be perfectly happy to share my shirts with Dean *G*.

 I totally blame my plaid addiction on having to wear 'smart' clothes in an office.  Look that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

Now the other day on face ache...sorry Face Book amberdreams asked if we were going to dress up for the parties.  Now I usually hide in darkened corners, behind pot plants and pretend I'm not there!  But this year the themes, an 80's night and a rock night, kind of favour me, as amberdreams said. "If you were a rock fan in the eighties, then the outfit doesn't change that much."

Now as a crusty old rocker, I'msort of familiar with the clothes of the time!   And after rifling through said wardrobe again, I was delighted to discover I did indeed have something that might be suitable for the rock night.

Now please understand, I don't  put all of these items together normally. The last time I even thought about doing something like this, it was 1989. I was a little heavier,  with the perm from hell...and glasses so big the lenses could have re glazedthe stained glass windows in Westminster Abbey.   So for those of a nervous disposition look away now...

P1010406Bloody scary isn't it? In case you're wondering the jeans even have roses on them! Damn iI love Matalan, and the boots come with interchangeable ribbons (red, purple and pink!).

Should I be brave? Turn up like this and scare the bejesus out of the poor unsuspecting souls at A14? Or find a nice Iron maiden T-shirt and trainers?  You know I can't even remember what I wore in the 80s, although I do have horrible flashbcks of neon pink and lots of lace and....oh god pedal pushers *shudder*

I think you look pretty great in that outfit, so I'd go with that!

Thanks! That's rock night sorted then.

Looks good to me! I can't remember my clothes from the 80s though I think I did have a ra ra skirt that was white with red, yellow and blue paint splashes. But i was also about 3 stone lighter then so could get away with more.

Thanks! I have a few memories of clothes from the eighties, and none of them good*G* I recall a couple of migraine inducing shirts and ra ra skirts. Perhaps some things are best left in the past.

Yes, yes - you should totally wear that - you look amazing!

Like you, I have some seriously suicide-inducing memories of 80's fashion disasters; none of which I would care to relive any time soon (batwing sleeves and pink spotted ra-ra dress anyone???)

And I love all the plaid; is there a plaid-addicts support group anywhere?

You could maybe donate them to the show's wardrobe department, although I'm still trying to imagine either of our lovely boys trying to wedge their granite shoulders into one of your shirts! :)

Really, it looks alright? Ok I'm feeling brave, I'll bring this lot along and wear it on the Saturday.

There's lots of 80's fashions I'm still trying to forget.a certain pair of faux leather trousers come to mind.....

I'm proud of those shirts! I've been collecting them for years. And if there is a support group then sign me up.

I'd be happy to donate the shirts to the show. On the condition that I'm there when Jensen tries to squeeze into one of them *G*.

Thank you, and yes the outfit's coming with me to A14. Ahh those shirts, I've been collecting them for a few years now *G*

I'll be happy to help in any way I can with the outfits. But just remember, that this will be the first one I've dressed up for.

I may be throwing you random pictures in text or email of outfit ideas in that case *clings* I hope you're bringing the plaid harem with?

I think that looks great. LOVE the boots. You'll fit right in : )

Thanks! I'm looking forward to the rock night, my kind of music.

Now I know what you look like and the outfit looks pretty good to me. I'm sure I have pics of the 80s but I was busy bringing up kids so I don't think fashion was high on my priority list. Have fun. How many more days?
sasha_dragonsasha_dragon on April 2nd, 2015 07:16 pm (UTC)
Hello there! That's me in all my glory, and yes I'm taking that outfit with me *G*. Ahh the 80's! When I was a teenager and even more clueless about fashion than I am now. It's only 35 days to A14, excuse me while I squee gently in a corner.
