So, I think I have been doing too much research for the Totally Retro Prom that is this Friday at Giovanni's. This weekend alone I said "psych," "radical," "take a chill pill," and "no duh" in conversation to my husband. Even though he has agreed to go to the prom with me, I'm pretty sure he now thinks I have lost my mind.


I was a young child in the 80s, but I do remember saying some of these things, particularly "Eat my shorts," thanks to Bart Simpson. It's now time for a refresher on cool retro lingo so you are ready for the Prom on Friday. Just remember to bring yourself back to 2014 speech on Saturday. I cannot be responsible for your cool factor going down.

Be sure to peruse that website thoroughly, because it is full of awesome 80s information! It's got everything from music and culture, to fashion, and where to buy radical 80s stuff.

You think you are ready for the prom? Don't forget to get your tickets now for $20, because they go up to $25 at the door.

One final note, the prom is not only about the 80's. It's your chance to show off your best retro fashion from the 70s, 80s, or early 90s! To find out which fashion decade fits you best, take this fun quiz. It may help inspire you.
