Today's Monday Listicles are 10 Things Totally 80s. This was a topic I got to suggest. I also suggested 10 Tweets, which I'll post Tuesday.
I got so into the 80s as I researched for this post that I posted 15 Toys & Other Stuff from the 80s on Friday. Check it out and let me know if you remember any of that stuff. I'm sure you will.
Everybody wore these when I was in junior high. I was obsessed with getting my hands on a pair. Unfortunately when I got them...I didn't rock them.
Here's what they look like when they were worn well:
Here's what they looked like on me.
|BABY. GOT. BACK.|
Check out the matching OP shirt. And the sweet pink Huffy. Actually the Huffy was my sister's bike. I didn't have a Huffy, but I did have a white and green striped banana seat.
|Too cool for school.|
Mine was WAY cooler than this.
Hair is such a big deal when you're a teen. I spent hours with my curling iron. I had two failed perms. I could not rock this. There were a few girls in my school that had their hair so perfectly feathered that the feathering ended at the very middle of the back of their head where the feathered sides met, so that it looked like a faux butt crack on their head. I so envied their feathered butt cracks. I could not reproduce that butt crack.
This wasn't me.
She had perfectly feathered hair.
I could never reproduce this on my own head.
My weak attempt at a mullet.
A woman who knows how to rock a mullet. She's got a full-out party on her shoulders.
She's got it. Yeah baby, she's got it.
