Hello! Let me quickly introduce myself, my name is Nikki and I am a fashion blogger from Passerellauk, but most importantly of all, I’m a fully fledged 80’s baby!
Growing up in the 80’s was pretty amazing wasn’t it? There are so many things that make the 80’s great. If you’ve all but forgot the crazy times of the 80’s, then let me jog your memory a little.
Remember Ring pops, Yo Yo’s and Spokey dokes?
We all remember the good old fashioned Yo Yo right? Can you remember the one that lit up? The Coca-Cola spinner? Most people still don’t understand why they were so popular… Why were they so cool? It was all because in 1989 the UK was gripped by Yo Yo fever.. and everyone got involved from our friends, to our mums and dads! We took them to school, we took them to the park, we swapped them, replaced them and finally, got very bored of them and that was the end of the Yo Yo craze! I have to be honest, I never learnt one trick, but if I saw a Yo Yo today I would probably have a go.
Marbles had so many uses in the 80’s didn’t they? There was the simple game of marbles, with a very strange set of rules which ended in me losing my amazing swirly and gaining a chipped cats eye, that I just knew had been found on the floor! The epitome of the marble was definitely the blue one wasn’t it? That blue marble had such an allure, you had to have it! When you finally won it, you were the king of the world…and then you lost it, damn!… “another game”?
Playing marbles was great, but an even better use for marbles was Ker-Plunk!
Your heart is in your mouth as the last couple of plastic sticks remain and it’s your turn. Which one do you go for? Green or yellow? Green or yellow? It’s the hardest decision you’ve had to make all day, except for the game of Jenga earlier. You go for yellow, you can feel the weight of the world on your shoulders, but mainly the weight of the marbles on your stick and you know you’ve chosen wrong. You can’t go back now, that’s it! As the marbles crash down, you catch a glimpse of your sister’s smug face, smiling away, knowing she has just won, for the fourth time today! I’ll beat her at Guess Who!
There was nothing more fascinating than watching a Slinky bounce down the stairs…
I would wait at the top, my sister would wait at the bottom and as that funky little spring made its way down the stairs along came my brother to spoil the fun mid-flow. Just as we finally got it to work. He gives it back in a mass of neon tangles and its game over! “Muuuuuuuuuuum!”
Watching saved by the bell with Zack and Kelly, was like your real life Romeo and Juliet wasn’t it? We were gripped, would they, wouldn’t they? Much like the Towie of today.. or so I hear. Hours upon hours of my 80’s life were spent in a Saved by the Bell trance, wishing I was Kelly and my boyfriend was Zack. Ah, Zack!
Lego! Everyone had Lego, lots of Lego! Little Lego people, Lego flowers, Lego cars, you name it. We had brand new Lego, hand me down Lego, car boot sale Lego, our best friends Lego I planned on keeping. Lego Helicopters, Lego houses, Lego merchandise, Lego turtles, Lego stuck to your foot! Stepping on a sneaky Lego brick is the worst!
If Lego friends were around in the 80’s it would have blown our little minds. Pink Lego? Are you kidding me?
Now the 80’s was all about getting outside, no matter the weather. Partly because I had two siblings and we drove each other mad if we stayed indoors. We had a massive back garden so we would play out there with amazing games like Twister, where we would all get involved.
Being outside in the 80’s was great because we had bikes, and my new Roller boots! Not only could I whiz around on wheels, but I could stop myself by tipping my toe forward whilst imaging I was an ice skater. Oh yeh!
I also enjoyed coordinating my boots and outfit because after all, the 80’s was all about the NEON!
Now the 80’s may be a thing of the past, but don’t be sad. We will always have our memories, and when that isn’t enough, we will always have….TruffleShuffle.

Need inspiration? Check out some of our favourite cool Tees!
Just before Christmas, me and fellow blogger Emily Jayne were discussing our favourite TruffleShuffle 80’s t-shirts, as you do. It was interesting to see how although we had similar tastes our personal style is so different. So whereas I was more ‘rock chick’, Emily was more ‘geek chic’.
That’s the beauty of TruffleShuffle, there is something for everyone. Whether you grew up listening to your favourite punk rock band or watching Neighbours, there is a t-shirt to bring back those good memories!
We thought we’d embrace our individual styles by joining forces for a ‘Rock Chick vs Geek Chic’ photo-shoot, picking a TruffleShuffle tee to take you from day to night. Choosing a t-shirt from TruffleShuffle is always hard because there is SO much choice but in the end I chose a David Bowie t-shirt and Emily a She-Ra Tee. Very fitting for our themes!
For my day look I wore my Bowie tee with some leather look trousers, cowboy boot heels, a camouflaged army jacket and my wolf Spirithood (it kept my head nice and warm)!
For my night-time outfit I just tucked my t-shirt into a leopard print jacquard skirt and swapped my cowboy boots for studded heels. I did have to wrap myself up in a black faux fur coat though as it was freezing! And it wouldn’t be a ‘Rock Chick’ look without the obligatory red lipstick.
I’ll let Emily explain her outfit choices to you:
When I was asked to demonstrate a geek chic tee that could be styled from day to night, I was pretty overwhelmed by the choice! TruffleShuffle just has so much nerd-worthy stuff to choose from, this geek girl found herself in a bit of a quandary. Should I go comic book? Sci fi? In the end I thought I’d hark back to my childhood and selected a fabulous She-Ra T-Shirt, because she was a hero of mine, and who doesn’t want the chance to be a princess of power? I also liked the fact that I had loads of colours to choose from – I don’t really wear black as I have a pretty colourful wardrobe, yet so many cool tees are only available in black.
For the day look I teamed my She Ra tee with a cobalt blue jersey pencil skirt, a denim jacket, some cutesy heart print tights, and comfy sheepskin lined boots.
I then decided to play up the red aspects of the tee for the evening look by layering it over a red dress with a fabulously floofy skirt, and added a bit of sparkle with gold glitter tights, belt and shoes. I finished off the look with a bow hairband, as I think if you’re going girly you may as well go whole hog, and a little faux fur jacket.
The shoot was so much fun, it was great to mess about with Sunny in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter!”
Like Emily mentioned, the shoot was so much fun to do but the best bit was styling our Truffleshuffle t-shirts. We would both love to thank the lovely Pete from Pete Sloan Photography in Birmingham who generously agreed to photograph us.
We picked a really cold day (In Decemeber, never!) so we appreciated him hanging around waiting for us to doll ourselves up! Also once again thank you to Truffleshuffle who are always totally awesome and supportive.
How would you have styled the t-shirts? Let us know!
