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: ru-clip.com/user/LetsMakeitUp1

    My mom said the reason that she and her friends wore their hair so big back then was a saying "The Higher The Hair The Closer to God." and if I'm going, to be honest, that's one of my favorite things she tells me. I love hearing about how my mom grew up though so I might just be biase lol.

    Next time don't copy exactly. Pay attention to details, girl:
    1.ur head is too big for that hat.looks like a child's hat.play up the size, girl!!!
    2.your acid wash look was too bland that's why you should have paired it with bright geometric shapes earrings, Bangles, socks.
    3.the office look is the only one you got right but the lips had to pop!!! More.
    4. Stop having this grasshopper RU-clip girl do your hair. I could have given your that Jersey girl Poof without the tease or all that hairspray. Next time ask REAL native who have experienced it all. Don't discriminate against age...us older hair dressers, stylists and artists have a lot of wisdom and tricks
