80's Hip Hop Fashion

I love the 80's! Thank goodness I was paired with a partner who also shares my 80's love.... The picture above is my inspiration. Notice the bright colors, the pink tulle and leg warmers! Now if this were me I would have been wearing my turquoise blue converse high tops instead of the silver pumps. (Yikes, I know bad visual!) All I have to say is layers, ruffles and more layers a la Madonna (the original Material Girl)!

My partner was born in the 80's but I grew up in the 80's. As my husband says he "lived the 80's" and doesn't wish to repeat it (party pooper). Oh the memories.... As for the tuck ins, I'm thinking a custom 80's music CD, vintage fat quarters, and a jewelry roll to hold all those spangle bracelets!


  1. We love the 80s too! My 10 year old can even sing along to Culture Club, the Police, Duran Duran.... I would have worn the outfit with my combat boots :)

  2. I have a question, I'm a newbie to sewing. I have heard the term "jelly roll" often. What is that?

  3. Your apron swap sounds like fun. I am sorry I wasn't able to get in on it--maybe next time!!
