It's cliché, I know, but sometimes you can’t help but wonder what your life would have been like if you lived in a different time! I’m a sucker for the throwback Netflix series and old-fashioned movies. I admire how filmmakers portray the different decades and often think that if I were to live in a different time, it would definitely be the 80s. Here are my reasons why:
1. The fashion
Colorful socks, big and baggy jean jackets, colorful tights, and don’t forget the high-waisted style! Most of these trends are coming back, but it’s not how it really was back in the 80s.
2. The hair
No amount of hairspray could truly let my hair do what they used to do back then, but man, I really wish it could! Thick curls and huge hair just wildly out of control! I really wish that was the current style because just by waking up I’d be ready!
3. No technology
Of course, they had television and video games and Walkmans and such, but their technology was nothing like what we have now. People in 2018 rely too much on technology and I wish that wasn’t the case. And it wasn’t the case in the 80s which is why I want to go back.
4. The music
Classics such as Madonna, Michael Jackson, David Bowie, Prince, and WHAM! They’re occasionally played on the radio, but not as much as they should be! I’d kill to go to a David Bowie concert!
5. The movies
You don’t even have to think because you know exactly what movies I’m talking about. "Back to the Future," "The Breakfast Club," "E.T.," "Ghostbusters," "Die Hard," "Top Gun," "Sixteen Candles," "Nightmare on Elm Street," "Dirty Dancing," "The Terminator," and so many more I could keep going forever!
The 80s were full of classics that we’re trying to bring into 2018, but nothing can replicate those times except watching movies and listening to their music! A girl can dream…
