Hi Lovelies!

I thought tonight I would show you three of my favorite 80s movies. All of these movies bring back so many memories whenever I watch them. I am a child of the 80s and I am not afraid to admit it. I love the clothes, the music, and the movies.

So, here is the list that I have compiled! These are in no particular order

Movie #1:  The Breakfast Club


Movie #2: The Karate Kid

Movie #3: Sixteen Candles


What are some of your favorite 80s movies?


XOXO
