DH and I have been invited to a 50th birthday party and we have to dress in 1950s wear. Somebody tell me what we should wear (being such a spring chicken lol) please!

something from Grease

Like Sandy in Grease?

DH could wear drainpipe suit and suede shoes with bootlace tie

Grease was set in the 50s - have you got it? Lots of inspiration on there. Lovely full skirts and little tight cardys and bobby sox.

this week's Grazie magazine has a lot of 50's inspired frocks in it if you feel like splashing out.

DH fancies going as a Kid Creole lookalike. Yessssssssssssssssssssssssss [sarcastic emoticon]

Me as Sandy from Grease. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..........

Did this a few years ago - found a marvellous 50's style skirt in a charity shop - not sure if I still have it, but if I do, you'd be welcome to it! Is navy with white polka dots - have a horrid feeling it went though, but will have a look if you like. Think it's size 14 or 16.

Rizzo was much cooler than Sandy (apart from when Sandy morphed into Sexy Sandy in tight black leggings)

Aero, could I possibly love you more? <<said in a Chandler Bing kinda way.

I totally agree on the Rizzo score.

#The worst thing I could do...
Is go with a boy.. or two
Even though the neighbourhood thinks I'm trashy and no good..
I suppose it could be true..
But there are worst things I could do

Oh pants - can't find it - think I must have sent it on (correctly thinking I'd never fit into it again)! Am so sorry for giving false hope - I got so excited there - it was a fab skirt and perfect for a 50's occasion. Darn and ****(insert suitable expletives!)

Methinks you could love me less now!

As for you Troy Donahue
I know, what you, wanna do

Another Rizzo fan...

Why don't you go as Marilyn Monroe?? Wear the white dress and get your dh to hold a hairdryer under it....
