Someone mentioned Levi's. Back in the day, they only came in 'shrink to fit'. I was afraid to buy them because what if they didn't fit. They were supposed to shrink a certain amount in the waist and the length.

Oh I wished I worked in a record store in the 80's, instead I spent a lot of time lurking in them and listening to and buying said above named artists. And wearing some sad new romantic clothes. And spending most of the decade backcombing my hair to look like Robert Smith. Or Siobhan from Bananarama. And my very first concert was Duran Duran And staying up till past 3 am to watch U2's set on Live Aid (bleedin time differences ). And taping it on cassette cos we didn't own a video. And my friend who DID have a video then taped over U2's set with an episode of "Days of our Lives!!!!!!!

God I miss the 80s....

My cousins would wear them around wet so they'd dry form fitting to your body. I was afraid to because I read a story in the paper about a Swedish girl who'd fallen asleep in her tight, wet jeans to make them fit at closely as possible, but they cut off her blood circulation in her legs and around her waist and she ended up crippled.

It was a quote from the movie,
actually my very favorite quote too.

Not meant to be sexy.
Clever?

-Ra-ra skirts & flouro socks. I'd swap with my sister so we'd each have mismatching socks.
-Walkmans. We thought we were so flash when we had one with tape AND radio, yeah! Listening to your tapes so often that they stretched and the songs went really slow.
-Stonewash denim jacket with matching jeans. Team with a Johnny Farnham mullet and you were set.
-Taping Rage overnight and watching it the next day.
-Videos that you loaded from the top.
-Big M scented hula hoops.
-THe D-Generation.
I feel old now. I think I'll go for a nanna nap.

I went from 9 to 18 in the 80's.... if given the choice, I don't think there's another decade that I'd have chosen to grow up in. There was so much good music - even if a lot of came w/reaaaalllly bad hair & clothes ; personal computers were coming on the scene & causing a lot of excitement; people were fired up about trying to make a difference for the less fortunate - Hands Across America, Band Aid, Live Aid, Comic Relief, etc. etc.

I saw some amazing things, too - both tragic & wonderful. The Challenger disaster; the wall coming down in East Berlin; communism falling in Russia & the realization they didn't want to nuke us to kingdom come ('Do the Russians love their children,too?'); Geraldine Ferraro running for VP (take your pick on that one - 'tragic' or 'wonderful', LOL!); John Lennon's murder - I could go on & on.

I would never trade my life now to relive my teenage years, but I would go back for short visits in a heartbeat if that were possible!

I wore a ra-ra skirt to my year 9 social - thought I looked SO cool
I have SO many videos of Rage it's ridiculous - of course now I don't have a vcr to watch them on
and D-Gen was THE best show on tv.


What about bubblegum jeans? I remember finally conning my parents into letting me get a pair. I loved them SO much. I used to sneak them to school in my bag and get changed into them when i got to school
