It was respectable in the 80s… #throwbackthursday

Here’s a throwback – 80s dresses. This is how my mum dressed me:
– pretty red dress with puffy sleeves – tick
– pulled up white socks – tick
– shiny red shoes – tick
– boy haircut – tick

I love it really – thanks mum πŸ™‚

**UPDATE – Just found out my mum MADE this dress. How awesome!**

If I were to buy this outfit today, here is what it would look like:

80s product

Girls Spotty Dress And Tights Set Β – Matalan – Β£8 (was Β£12)
Bluezoo Girl’s Red Patent Bow Pumps – Debenhams – Β£10

What were your favourite outfits from the 80s? Would you dress your little one in the same style?

I am linking this up with #MyCapturedMoment – as it’s a lovely moment my mum captured. Why don’t you share your captured moment too?

  1. My mum used to dress me exactly the same. She kept all the clothes so my girls have some retro outfits haha! #MyCapturedMoment


  2. This is a genius photo! You look so happy and carefree in your puffy red dress. Can’t believe your mum made it, that’s so cool. I had this little white with red dots summer dress with a matching shot-sleeve, cropped jacket that I totally loved. I think I almost lived in that outfit one summer.

    Thanks so much for linking up to #MyCapturedMoment xxx
