I love the 80s

My 80s Moodboard
I have to say, even all these years later, I still love the 80s for music, fashion, and style. It seems like the 80s were the last time that fashion had anything really original to say, and we've just been doing these endless insert-a-year-here reinventions. Clothes were fun, bold, graphic, colorful, comfortable. Yeah, I was there. If I'd had anything really resembling a sense of style in the mid-80s, my moodboard here would have been it. Oh man, I wish I'd had a pair of pink jeans! Or that newspaper sweater - I would have about killed for that.

In high school, I did have the jeans rolled up at the ankle (still do) and the keds, and a very Molly Ringwald-esque hat. My all-time favorite t-shirt was a plain white cotton thing, well-broken in and loved. My esprit bag was turquoise, but I totally would have settled for fuchsia. I had that kind of knit striped skirt too, but mine was in gray and teal.

Moodboards are fun! I think I may do one for every decade in the last century or so.


  1. You remember the 80s very differently than I. ;-)
    Though I do recognize many of the elements.

    Moodboards seem like a neat idea.
    Should be a feature in Pintrest.
