Lauper

Sweater - etsy
Skirt - Club Monaco, thrifted
Star socks - gift from Lynne!
Tetra flats - Trippen
Star earrings - gift

Happy Happy Friday!! Hope you all enjoyed your commercial day of candy and hearts and stuff. I spent mine curled up in pajamas with the latest episode of Grey's Anatomy and reruns of Law and Order SVU.  Long story short, our car decided to blow up (a hose burst) on Thursday, so any plans flew out the window. I still had a good day overall, and our little clunker is back up and running this afternoon, but boy does life sure like to throw me for a loop!


I didn't let it get me down. I'm still dancing today. Extra so because I'm thrilled to find out my hair looks a lot like the lovely Miss Cyndi Lauper a la Time After Time. However I'm pleased my hubby does NOT react negatively as her bf in the video does. Lol!

If you are like me and aren't up on your 80s music, you may remember the lovely Miss Lauper as Avalon the psychic on Bones.

Guys, do you see these socks!?! OMG these are so awesome. My starry heart flies!

  4. I was so sorry to hear about your car but I am so glad you and the hubby made the best of the situation! I am still so super psyched about your hair! It is amazing and it fits you SO well! I also love the black and white happening here--stars and stripes? Perfect! Have a great weekend Megan!

  5. Ooh, well I love your hair! I miss my shaved sides, I'm growing my top out more and then going back to it, so at that time, we will be twinsies!

  6. I was a CL fan from the beginning. And yes, I noticed the resemblance immediately.

  7. Like Shybiker, I loved Ms. Lauper then and still do now. Her "True Colors" is one of my favorite all-time songs. And you do bring her to mind, with your cool new cut!

  9. ... SO you're telling me there are people out there that know Cindy Lauper from Bones and NOT from the radio? Sheesh... kids these days. I'd swear off anyone not born in the 80s or earlier, but I have the sneaking suspicion that you're a 90s baby!

  11. Your new hair is adding a fantastic new twist to all your outfits now, you are officially as cool as Cyndi Lauper now. 'Girls just wanna have fun' was one of my first tapes... :-)

  13. Ha, I'm glad you liked that video! I used to have that album on cassette tape. :) 90s types might know Cyndi from "Mad About You" - she was an intermittent character on the show.

    Love all those stars! You look lovely!

  15. Those socks are from ME! So glad you love them. I owned Cyndi Lauper, er, audio-cassettes, and dressed like her when I could. We need to find a great 80s dance club when I come see you next :D

  16. I love Cyndi! She is still a fiesty, really cool woman. Have you seen her new TV show?

    You are so cool and I love your adventurous spirit. I have had my hair really, really short but never a style like yours. Color has been my biggest adventure in hair.

    Love the stars and stripes. Keep on dancin'.

  17. I just saw that video on Pop-Up Video over the weekend and thought it was so funny that her boyfriend got all pissed about her awesome hair! You do have a Lauper-vibe! Especially with the graphic black and white today!

  18. And now "Time After Time" is stuck in my head. :) Weren't 80s videos awesome? I love the fashion and over-the-top-ness. Is that a word?
