Now Channeling: Rock 'N' Roll High School

A few weekends ago, my husband insisted that I watch Rock 'N' Roll High School. The description sounded kitschy, but any movie featuring The Ramones sounded pretty good for a Friday night (as the song goes: "I just wanna have something to do, tonight, all right").  

Ultimately, it as silly, and not very well-done (except for the music!), but what really stuck out for me were the clothes! The year was 1979, so you can see some classic 70s style, but also the rise of the 80s--and LOTS of punk goodness. I recommend watching the movie for fun--and getting some of these great late-70s looks!


 1. 1970s pocket tee (only $15 on sale!) 2. zebra crop top  3. satin bomber jacket  
4.  high top Chucks  5.  worn-in flares (preferably with more rips.)

Who are you? The good girl? The bad girl? Or the rockin' Ramone? I think I'm a little bit of everything.

 xo,
Amanda

  1. I am so the good girl it is scary. It is good girl, aka, gramma librarian, but I am totally OK with that. My chucks are even pink. Sigh.

    1. Oh, I am totally the good girl too, but I love my black biker jacket, so maybe a little Ramone too?

  2. Love your way of putting outfits together to this movie. I haven't seen the movie in a few years, and I know a family so obsessed with it that they gave their firstborn daughter "Riff" as a middle name (but they call her "Riffy" more than her first name).

    1. Me too! I feel like my style is so eclectic...sometimes I wish it wasn't, but I guess it's also fun, to recreate yourself daily! ;)
