Flashback Friday


Welcome to Week Five of our fabulous segment Flashback Fridays where the old and new collide on everything from books to movies to first loves to favorite vacations. We'll be "flash-backing" on our own blogs, but most of all, we want YOUR participation as well. So, mark Fridays as your blog days to gaze into the past and smile!

This week we're going retro and sauntering back through the fashion and fads of the decade when we grew up, which can be the 80's or 90's depending on our ages.

First, I decided to bust out a picture from my family album....

Um, just kidding.

Here's a look at some of the 80's Fashion and Trends....the good, the bad, and the spandex!

One word: Jellies. Loved them, had a zillion pairs, were completely craptastic for my feet, but I didn't care!

Banana Clips, Swatch Watches, Friendship Bracelets.....they were the shizz!

The 90's introduced us to the Grunge & Urban looks as well as keeping in some of the crazy colors and fabrics of the 80's.

Nike Pumps....Pump up and air out!

OMG, those 80's pictures...*dies* I had sooo many gummy bracelets, and my hair! It may as well have eaten my head.

But I still love friendship bracelets.

So I totally don't remember what I used to wear. Except I think what was big for girls around my age were those overall jean skirts. I owned a few of those O.o

Krista Ashe said...

Dude, do you remember in the early 90's when peeps would where the short overalls and then only snap one side and have the others hanging off? TACKY! But we thought we were so cool!!!

It was so fun looking back and thinking about all the trends and stuff.
