In honor of their upcoming series, The ’80s: The Decade That Made Us, Nat Geo threw out a fun idea for an 80s-inspired Throwback Thursday. Personally, I draw inspiration from both sides of the relatively polarized 80s style spectrum – punks, preppies, rude girls and boys, mods and modettes – I love it all! To a a certain degree, my ideal style is a combination of these juxtaposed elements: the overly-starched collars, power shoulders, garish brights, rips and studs. There’s a reason I’m still poaching these pieces from my mother’s closet and collecting them from thrift stores.


The ‘80s: The Decade That Made Us, a three-night event, premieres Sunday, April 14th at 8 PM ET/PT on the National Geographic Channel.

I'm pretty sure if I ever have children I will name my child Sloane because my best friend in high school made me watch that movie every day till I made her watch Empire Records every day!
And I will always look for my very own Jake Ryan but probably always end up with a Ducky or a Long Duck Dong! 😉

Oh, Blair. Such a jerk, but it's so hard to hate on anyone who wears linen suits to high school.

I am old enough to have seen "Ferris Bueller" in the theater when it came out, and I would still totally wear Sloane Peterson's outfit. That leather jacket is to die.
