Fashion Forward Friday

Friday, 8 October 2010

Hmm, why do 80's people always look so wasted?

Today’s Fashion Forward Friday is a little manic. Welcome to the Jungle! Fashion Forward 80’s! This post does have a a mission behind the madness. This weekend I’m throwing a girls only 80’s party. Yes was born in the 80’s, however, I was too young to really experience the real meat of the era.

So I’ve been doing a lot of research and the 80’s seems to be predominately ruled by the following:
  • Big Hair
  • VHS
  • Cheesy music
  • Pac Man
  • Those sunglasses that are sadly popular again.. Wayfarers...
  • legwarmers,
  • Big make up
  • Bright colours and others.
I think it was quite a confusing time for all those 80’s kids. I mean all the hairspray and different coloured shoelaces alone would make me do the Egyptian!

Here is a little:

How To get dropped in the 80’s:

  •  Average
You will need:
  • Red lipstick
  • Blue eyeliner
  • Hair spray (lots)
  • Bright coloured top/dress with face print on it
  • Legwarmers
  • One glove
  • Braces (the suspenders not on your teeth)
  • Bright coloured accessories to clash with your outfit (why did you do this 80’s kids, WHY!)
  • 99 Red Balloons
  • And last but not least some random stuff to attach to your belt... Or whatever you might have that can have stuff attached to it... *?
  • Put it all on.
Pictures to follow on Manic Monday... I still think the best thing to come out of the 80’s was Blondie, she’s epic!


PS. Heart of glass
Blondie, soo fab! My inspiration for the party.
