Mean 80s girl

Some girls are too bad to be but not too bad to dress like
Mean 80s girl
Because I literally have just discovered (unbelievable right?), I had a “make your own sets” fix, and one of them was inspired by the girls I could never be, but wouldn’t mind dressing up as. Because it’s officially winter, I tried to keep it in the realm of winter wear.
So, I’ve never been a mean girl, was never able to, and I’m 100% sure I never will. But, as I’ve written about before, I’ve has my fair share of mean girl encounters. I didn’t get beat up, but I did have to recover from a few bruises.
The mean girls I like most though are definitely not the ones I knew, but the ones I watched on television when I was little– the Eighties movies’ most popular girls. Think Footloose “bad girl,” Sixteen Candles “mean girl,” and Breakfast Club “popular girl.”

They were glam jam hip characters.

I don’t recommend being a mean girl, but I say, “why not go ahead and dress like one?” 😉
