so how did you spend your weekend? if, like us, you received one of these... then you must have been at cecile zamora van straten’s 40th birthday party last saturday. and just like any party worth a door biatch, this one had a theme: 80s. yikes! the decade we want to forget! (also the decade fashion forgot? hmmm wasn't that the 70s..?). the boys' invite (left) had rubber bracelets, little silver hoop earrings, a dozen safety pins, and angelique black eyeliner. the girls' invite (right) had fingerless gloves, little silver hoop earrings, a dozen safety pins, and angelique black eyeliner. and each had a credit-card-plastic invite, which had cecile's caricature and written in the back:
instructions for april 28, 2007:
1) wear an '80s outfit, including this invitation.
2) go to shangri-la's premiere cinema on the 5th level, 7pm.
3) eat the food.
4) have your picture taken.
5) enter the cinema to watch an '80s movie.
6) popcorn and soda are free.
so for inspiration, all day saturday we listened to 80s music, and became nostalgic for all our favorite british new wave bands—the cure, echo & the bunnymen, aztec camera, scritti politti, style council, the blow monkeys, ABC, elvis costello & the attractions, haircut 100, even culture club! daming memories… at hindi lahat maganda! but people came dressed in 80s, some hard-core 80s, others 80s-influenced lang. some preppy, some punk, some dynasty, some disco. after food and drinks catered by margarita fores, we were treated to a classic 80s movie, and no, it didn't star molly ringwald... some random people who were feeling 80s that night…
jo ann! tadi!
melvin! xtina! jujiin!
so chica cecile zamora!
