My Totally Bitchin 80’s Outfit

Kickin it 80’s Style: So many options when dressing for the 80’s but this is what I went with!

Bright Pink Lipstick (Candy Yum Yum by MAC)

Purple Eyeshadow

neon yellow leggings (American Apparel)

Yellow Jellies (American Apparel) I remember those plastic shoes used to cut up my feet! 

Neon Pink Ruffled skirt (H&M)

Black Bodysuit (American Apparel)

curly hair (Curling wand and Patience) Go Big Or Go Home! I used a Nume Curling wand and tried to curl my hair as close to the scalp as possible with a deep part! However it was humid and I was running around so it ended up looking wavy..

Fanny Pack (American Apparel) To make it stand out against my outfit I clashed colors with a cotton candy blue and pink fanny pack.

Fishnet gloves neon green and pink (Party City

New kids on the block button: I had that same button when I was younger just not quite as large ! Found this on EBay!

    
 

Made in the 80’s

With my birthday being a week away I am doing a big shout out to the eighties…I am having an 80’s bash and my research brought back a lot of good memories and it had me feeling nostalgic… So, I figured I would blog about it

The Music:

New Kids on the Block (I was kinda obsessed, hmmm no.  I was obsessed!). I knew every word to their songs! Posters on my wall.. I had their dolls.. the whole nine yards. My fav was Jordan without a doubt. They were awesome.. c’mon they even had their own cartoon! I also was a big fan of New Edition and Genesis.

The Hair:

Hair Crimper: The hair crimper was my best friend well into the nineties!! I totally fried my hair with it. I always wanted curls and waves, I even begged my mom to perm my hair (not a good idea).

Also you could not go wrong with a ponytail high up to the side and a scrunci!

Trends:

Neon: Everything was neon from my nose at the pool (Remember Zinka?!)  to my L.A Gears. Am I the only one who thinks Zinka should make a come back?! I always thought wearing that stuff was a super cute way to wear sunblock! Fanny packs and slap bracelets were also a must!

The Movies:

Garbage Pail Kids: I was obsessed with this movie even though it did scare me and gross me out! (I was a weird kid)I also collected their trading cards! There was Gremlins! I always wanted Gizmo as a pet!  And, who can forget all those fabulous Molly Ringwald  movies! (Pretty in pink, Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles)
