Creating this post was like traveling back in time for me - I`m a child of the 80s and these were the pop stars of my childhood. I ADORED Madonna back then! I loved how cool, sassy & daring she was and (like every other girl my age) I loved the way she danced. Her style became that influencial and iconic because it was 100% wearable and easy to copy for every girl (age 10-30); it was cheap, easy & fun to cut off your leggings & shirts and mix all off your jewellery. Plus one didn`t need to be skinny to pull off the look, since it covered all "problem zones". Madonna`s early 80s style WAS A LOOK TO HAVE FUN IN! I loved it back then and I still love it today!
