Should I Share This?


Over the weekend I was sent an email by someone who I have not seen for many many years. An old school friend. I basically grew up with her and we had a ball together throughout our teenage years. She emailed to tell me she had come across some old photo's of us as kids. OMG. This is a Madonna Party we attended in 1986. Can you tell which one is me? If not, well I am the white Madonna bottom left. Help me Rhonda!
What a laugh. Geez I miss those carefree days.

  1. Yes you should share it. We all dressed up as Madonna at some point in our life. Tragically I have a photo of myself dressed up as Pammy Anderson from Baywatch - that's something not to share!!!
    Love your photo and its always great to catch up with old friends.
    Cheers

  2. Haha!! What fantastic memories. I clearly remember going to a Kylie Minogue dress up party. Thankfully I think there is no photographic evidence.

    Like a Virgin...

  3. Ha! You are by far the best Madonna of the bunch. You should have another Madonna party and see which Madonna people show up as- she has had so many different looks. Make the men dress up too, it would be a hoot!

    Thanks doll,

  7. Still gorgeous i see!! My big sister was into the whole Madonna dress up thing, lace hair ties & rags (which drove my mother nuts!!) I seemed to have skimmed the 80s safely & don't have too many scary photos - have to say, you all look cute & pretty tame. I do remember going through a few cans of spray paint for orange Cyndi Lauper hair though. Love Posie

  20. Haha, classic! I have to admit I channelled Madonna as often as I could back in the mid 80's...every mufti day at school I seemed to think it was a great idea to stick on the lace fingerless gloves, put lace in my hair and load up on the necklaces just like Madonna a la Desperately Seeking Susan...as you do, lol!

    Thanks for sharing :)
    xx Karen
