Born in 1970 Bonnie became a pop culture maven when she became addicted to TV watching Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley and Three's Company. By the 1980's Duran Duran, Talking Heads and Cyndi Lauper were spinning on her turntable while she sported a black trench coat and suede ankle boots. Today Bonnie appreciates everything retro and she'll probably kick your butt in Harry Potter trivia. When she's not reminiscing she can be found on Pack and catching up on TV and reading. Bonnie blogs on Retro Invites under the moniker Queen of the Girl Geeks.
PS - Yes that is a Gunny Sack dress she's wearing, circa 1985.
Robin loves everything vintage and having lived through the last five decades, she's seen, listened to, driven, and worn (almost) all of the coolest classics up close, personal, and first-hand. Her very favorite decade was... is... the 1980's with it's big hair, bold makeup, and New Wave alternative music but as soon as they make time travel a thing, she plans to visit the Roaring Twenties.
She believes in the power of positivity and that work should be fun. That's why in addition to contributing here, Retro Robin also curates a party planning site called Seasonal Showers.
The photo is of Robin celebrating something back in 1988, like, sitting pretty on a gnarly Colonial-style couch with bitchin' Banana-clipped hair. For sure.
Retro Invites happened when two vintage-loving co-workers became friends and then decided to share their passion for retro with the world.
