I Dressed Like It Was 1987

  • Published on Oct 19, 2017
  • I styled 3 outfits inspired by the popular fashions of thirty years ago! From the hair metal rockers and groupies, to blazer-clad working ladies and teen pop idols decked out in acid wash jeans, I had a great time pretending it was 1987 and exploring fashion history through one of the most iconic decades - the 80s. Let me know what you think of my ~lookbook~ and if you want to see more of these!
    A huge thanks to Kayley Melissa for rocking out this 80s hair! You can check out her channel here: thexvid.com/user/letsmakeitup1

    My mom told me about how everyone took so long to do their hair and she just had to flip her head over (like how you would do a ponytail nowadays) and just spray some hairspray and everyone was envious and in awe.

    OMG this video was sooo awesome!! Were you around in the 80's? I'm just curious. My favorite outfit was the mall one with you and your boyfriend in matching acid washed jeans! I miss the 80's so much!! I was a kid back then and I loved every minute of it! I had so much acid washed stuff! It's funny you should mention 77 in your comment, cuz that's the year I was born!

    My mom was almost exactly your age during 1987, so this was pretty fun to watch to see what was popular when she was in her 20’s :) she’s told me about how she used to get perms during this time, but her hair was so straight that it never truly got the volume.
