1980's Outfit: Rude Girl Style

Oh My I seem to have stepped into the eighties
Today I'm channelling some 1980's rude girl style. 

I'm wearing a vintage Strawberry Switchblade tee shirt (I loved their hair and make and still love their style) a cute skater skirt, leggings, leopard print socks and brothel creepers.
Loving the switchblade
My over sized cardigan fits my SKA theme perfectly, Ive even pinned a Specials badge on it.

Ive gone for pinky toned make up with the Bodyshops new Lily Cole lip treatment in shade 04 "Go Pink" on my lips and the Lily Cole lip and cheek dome in "Crazy for coral"  on my cheeks. I'm using HD powder on my brows and my eyeshadow colours are booty call, busted and tease from the Urban Decay naked 2 palette. Eyeliner is wink by Barry M,foundation is Mabelline dream Matte mousse in Porcelain. Mascara ia Mabelline Cat eye lashes.

Ive put my hair in a messy top knot and put a victory roll in the front.
I am out and about all day today and as the weather is so changeable this outfit is perfect.

The Details
Tee shirt-ebay
Leggings-Dorothy Perkins

And here is Strawberry Switchblade to get us all the mood!

Remember feeling good and looking great has nothing to do with dress size and everything to do with attitude.Never wait to be a certain weight to start enjoying clothes and never reject anything thinking it wont suit your shape. Try it on-you may be surprised.

I'm giving away a fabulous eyeliner goodie bag all courtesy of Barry M which contains the following

  1. so rock and roll hunny! looking fab!

  2. I had forgotten about Strawberry Switchblade completely, I now remember that I too used to love them, back in the day...

  3. Haha, I loved That song, not that I was born then, no, no, not me. Probably wasn't born til the nineties or something.... A great fun look today Betty Bee!

  4. Looking good! :) I love a bit of ska, and if you want current ska / punk check out The Mighty Mighty Bosstones! Love them!! :)

    Great post.. the specials are part of my early childhood love. :)

  5. Ok - this was so my era! This was the first music/style that I loved lets see ... pale blue Ben Sherman button down shirt with skinney maroon tie for school ( well ... still worked as school uniform...). White stilletos and T shirt dresses with Fred Perry styles collars, and Fred Perry T's, Army jackets ( the ones with orange lining) and Harrington Jackets - the blue ones being especially sought after, Crombie coats and 2 tone suits. Monkey boots and DMs... or Etons ( personal favs).I didn't go the parka route but I had a US olive army mac instead from Flip - sadly stolen at college - I still wish I had that coat. Painted Beat girl, Special's Man Mural on my bedroom wall, Madness M on my Brothers wall. Saw Madness, the Beat and also the Jam etc a few times, moving into older ska and reggae via early UB40. Very jealous of my Brother who saw the Specials. Always had a fondness for that rocksteady beat... ahhh happy days...

  6. i really wish i could figure out how to do victory roll i get all fingers and thumbs and it never works :( you look fab a usual xx

  7. :) love it! esp the 80s tee, WISH I'd kept mine! x
