Sorry about that.

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:

    Saf's outfits remind me of Winoda Ryder movies way to much. For example 1st outfit a little of Lydia from Beetlejuice. the 2nd outfit is Heathers and the final outfit is younger Winoda in general

    You nailed the first outfit. The skirt on the second was far too short. We wore them just below the knee. Our skirt and jackets were sets. We would not pair non-matching business suits. The jacket sleeves were wide and long. The blouse sleeves would not have shown. Plus, our shoulder pads were huge. Also the extremely crimped hair was out by 1987. We still wore large hair, but it was soft curls all over.

    87 and I was 20. Rocked ALL these looks. FYI most of us got spiral perms to get that big curly haired look 😉 and we spent lots of money on those jeans! Wish I’d saved my converse and vans since my daughters and grandkids wear them! Lol

    I sneezed exactly as she slapped the dude at 7:19 and I turned my head to sneeze in my elbow and when I came back up she said "snap out if it!" And I looked at her like bish and I had to rewind it 10 seconds to find out what went on when I sneezed because she was criticizing my sneeze instead of saying bless you and- wow this is getting long and you probably scrolled down from this comment already so I'll stop because I'm salty

    A real blast from the past. I wore these fashions in the 80s - a lot was inspired by Madonna and the supermodels Christie Brinkley, Cindy Crawford and Elle McPherson.

    These time-capsule fashion flashbacks are fun. But you do miss a couple in each. In this one, where was Miami Vice? Or Melanie Griffith at the beginning of her film "Working Girl" with her truly wild memorable teased up hair. Or Madonna??? Otherwise, great fun!
