The eighties were definitely NOT the best era for flattering fashion. In fact, the fashions and styles were downright ridiculous and often ugly!
This particular item brings back awesome memories for me.
I started being a serious gym bunny when I was 17 years old and I haven't stopped since. If I don't have a gym contract or working out, I feel that something is missing in my life. I've been through aerobics, step aerobics, calanetics, kata box training, zumba, weight training, circuit training, you name it, I've probably tried it at one time or another.
G-String high-cut skimpy leotards with flesh coloured footless tights, wide coloured belts and head bands and not forgetting the fuzziest, brightest coloured leg warmers you could find.
Don't forget the LA Gear hi-tops, which any dedicated Gym Bunny just HAD to have, with the same colour laces as your fluffy roll-down socks, of course. Nothing demure about the eighties!
Oh yeah, those were the days of Jane Fonda educating us on "feeling the burn" and squeezing our glutes until we thought they'd actually fall right off!
Today's retro music feature is George Michael. I thought I'd stick with the eighties...
Remember, You Gotta Have Faith!
