Let's get physical with this '80's workout

Why does '80's fashion still make me smile? Sure I was also a victim to the big hair, roller skating days, but the workout 'let's get physical' has to take the cake. Looking back at the '80's and seeing my hair don'ts make me question the fashion decade coming back. Well at least I can still wear my Madonna bow?

Oh Olivia Newton-John...I've missed you. Your hair and those leggings just made my day. Why did we wear so many colors and spandex throughout those years? Yes, I can still think of many women who are still rocking out the spandex today!



Her headband and wristband makes this outfit, but who am I kidding who's looking at her wrists? How does she stand so still without smiling. Maybe John Travolta is nearby!


Legwarmers are still the rage in dance studios today. When I was dancing ballet I found legwarmers to be very hot, but made me feel like a dancer. Or was it my ballet leotard and bun?




These shorts are just too classic for words....let me know what you think of them.

Let's get physical, physical, I wanna get physical.....with these pink glasses. I think I just found the outfit I want to wear to work tomorrow. Do you think its a little too much sweetie? I'm pretty sure I could get away with wearing it in San Francisco. So what do you truly miss from the '80's?

Oh Olivia Newton John, and good call on Flashdance. I have to add Fame as well. The dancing in the 80's was much better than the stuff kids are doing today.
Thanks for bringing back the memories!

My hair was sooo big it had a life of it's own. The music was great fun and I liked wearing my torn sweatshirt hanging off one shoulder. Great times in the 80's.

Oh the spandex and leotards, leg-warmers and synthesizers! I miss it a bit. Though I have to say, I never really understood the whole slitted-glasses-you-can't-see-through look. The makeup, definitely. I remember I had some sort of exercise kit that included lots of rhythmic gymnastics pieces like the ribbon. Loved that.

Laura said...

Brandi: Those glasses made me dizzy too. The makeup was fab wasn't it?

OMG, this was SO me back then! Too bad all of my classmates were pastel wearing preppies w/ their collars up and the tuck-rolled jeans.

Boy did they miss out!
