There are so many different styles and cultures mixed in to one outfit. It’s like going to a fashion show every time I get on the bus or walk down Haight St. Most of the fashion I totally covet. I’m definitely not a fashion guru, and pretty much a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. But, I do desire the ability to mix the simplest pieces to make a masterpiece. With all the different styles, it’s impossible to like them all. I have seen my fair share of slutty dresses mixed with 10 inch stilletos, full body mesh jumpsuits, and rainbow knee highs. I admire their tenacity to wear whatever the F__….umm heck they want and to be proud of it.
Which brings me to my ’80’s Ski Bunny in the Marina’ part of the story. Another awesome part about San Francisco are the theme parties NOT on Halloween! Maybe I’m wrong, and the rainbow knee highs were a part of a Rainbow Bright costume (I’m pretty sure I’m right in saying it was a fashion statement….from hell). So, I channeled their fearlessness and rocked my 80’s Ski Bunny outfit on a 45 minute bus ride to the Marina for my FIRST theme party in San Francisco. Actually it was my first non-Halloween theme party ever.
The experience on the bus was pretty entertaining! Everyone looked at me “slyly” and quickly turned their heads when I looked back at them. Little kids didn’t even bother to look away quickly. They just kept on staring. I’m guessing because they were jealous of my awesome bright purple fur boots. I was attempting to recreate the Dumb and Dumber Snow Bunny look with those gorgeous boots. My only problem was my lack of a neon colored snow jumpsuit, so I went with sort of a jazzersize look. Cut off sweatshirt, headband, and crimped hair. I know you’re wondering, “who the hell still (or ever) has a crimping iron!?!” Well I do people! And I’m proud of it! My mom handed down that sweet styling tool and I will keep that thing till the day I die! You never know when the next 80’s themed party is going to pop up! In San Francisco, it may be sooner than I think.
