This August, Mirror80 turned 9. Yes, 9! It’s fun to look back at the very first post I wrote for the blog…’80s tribal style was everywhere, and ’80s Deco was one of the most obvious styles to re-emerge at thrift shops.
As we’re less than a week away from Season 3 of Stranger Things, it’s time to kick the countdown into high gear! If you’re reading this after watching Season 3 and you’re looking to revel in a big dose of retro fun, this post is also for you. Hawkins, Indiana is ready, and so is Mirror80.
Ready for another retro summer experience?! This time it’s all about the pizza. Because back before we knew the dangers loading up on carbs and sugary soda, indulging ended in a wonderfully full stomach…and (if I’m being honest) a slight queasy feeling. God, I miss the ’80s!
This summer is all about escaping into the ’80s! Today let’s escape the heat with a tall glass of iced tea. Not artisan tea. Grocery store tea that you steep in boiling water, then pour over ice and garnish with lemon!
Maybe it’s the upcoming premiere of Stranger Things’ third season…doesn’t this summer feels like the perfect time to dive back into the ’80s?! It’s that giddy feeling of waiting for the season’s biggest blockbuster, and filling the time with your very favorite things while you count down the days.
Happy Valentine’s Day!! It’s a strange holiday, isn’t it? While it’s easy to ignore the day and dismiss it as a commercial nightmare, there’s just something about the imagery that can’t help but channel an ’80s feel.
There’s nothing like the junk food kids had at their fingertips during the Decade of Decadence, but there’s something extra special about the high-end dining experience created by chefs experimenting with beautiful presentation.
Who’s winding down for Thanksgiving? Or maybe winding up?… Yes, the holidays are about to kick off, and I wanted to check in and wish you and yours a great start to the season. Plus, I’d love to let you know what’s in store for the blog over the next month. Keep reading for details, along with a slew of decadent photos!
Happy Halloween season, Everyone! Since we’re a little over a week out from the big day, I thought it was time to update the ’80s Halloween playlist I created two years ago. While this collection of music videos leans New Wave and a bit goth, there’s a little something for everyone in the mix…
Happy fall, Everyone! Each year I style a Halloween photo shoot featuring a pumpkin project with themes such as “terrazzo” and “iridescent”. This year’s Halloween shoot is inspired by the 1988 remake of The Blob, along with current trends in art and still life photography.
