It was Acceptable in the Eighties

After spending the first part of the week coming up with ideas for Sym’s “hippie” outfit for 60s Day at school today, she informed me that it’s actually 80s Day. This is what we came up with last night, from old clothes mine and some stuff her dad picked up at his work. It’s actually a pretty reasonable facsimile of my friends and I in the seventh grade. Which was in 1988.
