Think the opening scenes of
Valley Girl when the group of girls
is shopping at the Sherman Oaks Galleria in, like, the real Valley.
This is your mission. This costume includes all the standard 80s
fashion elements and is only limited in execution by your imagination.
Here are some essential elements:
huge top option #1: a big button down with
shoulder pads in a bright color or pattern with the color up
huge top option #2: sweatshirt or other
knit with the neck of the top so it hangs off one shoulder
blue eye shadow with blue or teal or
purple eyeliner (worn on the inside!)
bright lipstick (brand: wet n' wild)
lots of bangles on both arms

picture of her daughter dressed up for 80s day at school. Lots of
great elements here: big hoop earrings, leggings under a skirt, bangles,
frizzy hair, blue eye shadow and bright lips. Go Alexis!
