80's for the Ladies


One of my favorite current trends is neon brights. They add a splash of instant summer and 80's optimism to any outfit. Colored accessories or even a coat of nail polish is an easy way to test out the trend. The acid wash look is not for the faint hearted, but is definitely do-able [See Rumi @ Fashion Toast for inspiration]. Slip them on and feel like you've stepped back in time to the front row of a '87 Def Leppard Concert.

A college bar my friends and I got to alot hosts an 80's music night every Friday. It's impossible to not dance the evening away when songs like "Don't Stop Believin" are blasting on the loud speaker. I love eighties tunes, you just can't help but be happy and dance when you're listening!

My Rad 80's Playlist

  1. Paradise City- Guns N' Roses
  2. Into the Groove- Madonna
  3. Pour Some Sugar on Me- Def Leppard
  4. More Than A Feelin'-Boston
  5. Don't Stop Believin' - Journey
  6. Your Love- The Outfield
  7. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun- Cyndi Lauper
  8. Beat It- Michael Jackson

What's your favorite 80's jam?

xoxo, lauren

I love 80s music! My mum was a total 80s gal, so I grew up listening to all her favorite tunes and dancing with her. I love Michael Jackson, Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, George Michael, Whitney Houston... the list goes on!

Great playlist, I'm an 80's reject, but if you're mega into the music, try Duran Duran, and a bit of David Bowie aswell. Magic.

Love those jeans! They're so fab; but hard to pull off! Love the flamingo tank you've picked! AND I LOVE YOUR PLAYLIST! Absolutely adore Guns and Roses and MJ!

Neon brights have really started to grow on me, but I'm still iffy on the acid wash denim. I think I'd rather wear my neon with grays or beiges. :)

Hmm favourite 80s jams...I like the cheesy movie soundtrack songs like "Footloose" and "Time of My Life" from Dirty Dancing.

Sherin said...

Great soundtrack. 'girls just wanna have fun'! I just remembered how great that song is.

Cafe Fashionista said...

Don't Be Borin' Vote for Lauren! Love that. Also love your 80s playlist. I don't believe that any 80s playlist is complete without a little Cyndi Lauper - especially Girls Just Wanna Have Fun! :)

Can you style me in that outfit?
I simply.. love it, dear. :) Sensational.

I was really foolish enough to think that acid-washed would never come back. ANYTHING can come back. What would I think such a silly thing?

ann said...
