DP: New Sensation: Big Hair-Big Jackets-Big Hoops…80’s Stylin’

WP Daily Prompt: New Sensation – Describe your favorite fashions from days of yore or current trends you think are stylin’

Back in the day, 1980’s, my fashion icon was Janet Jackson. I wore the big black jacket (with shoulder pads) and of course the sleeves had to be rolled up.  I loved playing with makeup back then (not su much now), so I would go all out with the complete makeup look: red lips, eye shadow, liner, mascara, rouge, and red nail polish. As for jewelry, they had to be large hoop earrings. And it wouldn’t be “the look” without the big hair. I had it all!

Unfortunately, I don’t know what happened to my pictures from that era, but when you look at Ms. Jackson, my look was not far off from hers. Gotta see if I can find my pictures.

I even had a few strands of hair dangling in my face

For me, the 80’s was a  fun decade! Aah, the memories!
