Like, oh my god, that is soooo retro!
Way back when fashion wasn't a dirty word, I was glad the '80s were over. Not that I remember much of my 8 years living in the decade, but I've seen the photos - atrocious!
As a teenager, I saw fashion revivals of the 1950s, '60s and 70s and thanked Hollywood that no one was silly enough to think the 1980s were worth reviving.
I was wrong.
As a mother, I am conscious of what I dress my girls in, and what I let them dress themselves in. No skulls, preferrably pretty colours, mini skirts MUST have tights underneath and if possible, always sunsafe. I hoped they never had to be subjected to the style that I was as a child. Ha.
If anyone has been shopping in the last few months, they'd have noticed a lot of fluro colours. Uh oh.
Leg warmers. Ew.
High-top sneakers. In fluro colours (though I must admit I did buy a pair for my youngest, in pastel pink!)
And my favourite, good old Dunlops.
Yes, it seems the '80s are back.
Today, for me, was proof.
My 6 year old asked me to crimp her hair because...the bumps in her hair suit her, she said.
Luckily we were going to the pool. Ooops, the crimps are gone :(
