This is my prom pic, circa 1985. I don't know why I picked a dress that looks like a wedding dress - had the whole "Like a Virgin" thing going on... Of course, I had to add my own accessories so you can sort of see one of the trends of the 80s - fingerless gloves. These were very popular (thanks Madonna!) and I'm also wearing rather large earrings but alas, you can't see them very well either... My prom date (who is currently in the witness protection program) is sporting his awesome feathered hairstyle and I'm rocking my 80s perm!
Speaking of perms...
I wish I had a full size version of this photo. At least you can appreciate the hair and amount of time and hairspray that would have to go into this kind of
helmet creation! What you can't see are the shoulder pads and stretch pants that I'm also wearing...thank God for small favors!
Some of the other fun fashion fads of the 80s that I may have worn (I will neither confirm or deny) include harem pants, leg warmers or anything Flashdance or Madonna!
So did you have any fav fads from the 80s you rocked then - or are rocking now????
