eighties movie, central casting

July 19th, 2013


Chad and I were flipping on television around the other night, and we wound up watching about half an hour of Pretty In Pink — and it make me remember all the amazing eighties-style outfits that hit the fashion world basically out of nowhere, and then died out a few years later.  Crimped hair?  Shoulder pads?  They didn’t exactly stand the test of time, but man, were they fun while they lasted.

So as I was trying to match this cute little crop top to an outfit, I thought… what if I just dressed like a background character in an eighties movie?  We’ve seen the resurgence of sixties-mod, seventies-glam, and nineties-grunge, so the eighties should be hitting right… about… now. 

And even if they don’t, I’m in love with all these fun, colorful pieces.  These Foster Grant sunglasses have become such a favorite of mine — I wear them all the time!  It’s funny how some pairs become your immediate go-to sunnies.  I just fell in love with these!

    Love the 80s outfit and that clutch! I’ve been adoring those sunglasses of yours – did you purchase them from the Foster Grant website? I would love to find a similar pair but didn’t see them on there!

    Hey hon!

    I’m pretty sure these are the same ones, but with all black frames instead of the pink: http://fostergrant-store.mwrc.net/en/product.php?product_id=53076

    For the newest styles, I think you’re probably better off looking in stores, since they don’t have all the styles on the website.  They’re sold at Walmart, Target, Rite Aid, basically all the big chains, so you shouldn’t have trouble finding them!

    Such a great combination! Love the mixing of bright prints.

    I love this look!  I wasn’t that keen on the 80’s stuff the first time round – but your version is kind of 80’s meets modern.  Like Ryan Gosling in Drive!
