Pat Benetar Kick

We are young! Heartache to heartache, we stand! No promises, no demands! Both of us knowing...Love is a battlefield (guitar, guitar, guitar). I was watching NBC's The Voice last night, because it's an amazing show by the way, and Blake Shelton had two of his teammates sing Pat Benetar's We Belong. I sang along, I subjected the man to it, I was reminded of my feelings about Pat Benetar. What I didn't realize is that I would have an 80's fashion crush on her pretty quickly.


So in normal Amanda fashion, I played 14 Pat Benetar songs and Google imaged her for good measure. What I found was a rockin' 80's lady (along with Blondie) that Mama wanted to emulate. Pat Benetar had a Joan Jett esque rocker quality to her but then wore purple tiger striped jumpsuits, yeah, then accessorized that there jumpsuit with pops of red. Hello, crush, can I make these prints and colors work today?

Despite the blatant 80's-ness of it all, I really do feel like these duds could be inspiration for a more modern look. Bright colors are most definitely in and if I really wanted to wear the colored eye shadow that Pat Benetar is workin', then I could just do it. Who is stopping me? Well, besides my man's warnings of looking too "80's" that is. I don't know how I'll do it but I will pay homage to Pat Benetar in the very near future, just you wait and see...


  1. I like 80's style and look!:)

    Thanks you Prim and Propah! I will now be humming 'We are strong' to my afternoon meetings, which will actually help to improve them. <3
