Ahhhhh......we had some very unique ideas back then, didn't we?!! Let's stroll down memory lane...
Remember these? It was SUCH FUN to go to mall (or if you were uber classy, a private studio) and get all dolled up. Layer upon layer of makeup, a bottle and a half of hair spray, and we were STUNNING. Giant ropes of pearls were often used to make the whole image "sexy". Bare shoulders were required. I don't know about the rest of you, but my Glamour Shot is safely tucked away in a locked drawer, waiting to be used in psychological warfare sometime in the future. "Tell us the truth, or we will do THIS to you!!"
Nobody ran their fingers through their hair in the 80's. You would have lost your hand forever. I had the best bangs, combined with the sides blown straight out from my ears. My crush had to hold his head tilted to the side so his hair wouldn't succumb to gravity. It was swooped right from his left ear over his head to the right. Cool.
Hammer pants. Acid wash. Shoulder pads the NFL could be jealous of. Add to that the legwarmers, aerobics uniforms, and sweatbands, and you have a florescent mess of polyester.
Actually, I miss a lot of the music. Not Tiffany or Debbie, mind you, but Depeche Mode will never get old. Right? Right?!!!
Tell me: What do YOU miss from the 80's? What are you hoping to never see again???
