Now, on to fashion... The 80's seem to be making a comeback, which I am totally okay with because you know I rocked some hardcore fashion trends back then. I would even be okay with bringing back big hair, but only IN MODERATION (minus fly backs, of course). Here's why:
Oh yes I did.
Now that is just wrong. Why did my mom let me leave the house looking like this? And why did I think that the big horizontal part in the front of my head separating the top wave from the bottom wave looked good? The wind blew, my hair did not. And the flybacks? No comment. Forget Darwin, I think I should be receiving credit for the Big Bang Theory. I was robbed. On a side note, it is painfully obvious that this pic was taken before I had braces. Let us please take a moment of silence for Dr. Geiger, my beloved orthodontist, who helped me out in the worse way, even if his breath did smell like he sucked on a garlic clove prior to every one of my appointments.
But what I WILL NOT be totally okay with is bringing back the stirrup pants. Yea, you know the ones. Basically they were like leggings but with, well.....stirrups on the bottom. Actually, I didn't really have a problem with them, it was the soles of my feet that took the beating. Me, being the tall chick that I am, smiled through the pain of those things. By the time I made it home from a day of wearing that lovely fashion trend, the bottom of my feet had permanent dents in them from where the stirrups were pulled so tight trying to make it from the bottom of the pant to the bottom of my feet. Stirrup pants were not friends of long-legged girls.Okay maybe one more. The last 80's trend that can stay behind is shoulder pads. I'm not looking to appear as though I'm an NFL quarterback anytime soon. (Unless I'm getting their salary along with it.)
I could probably keep adding things to this post, but I should really call it a night. I will not, however, be watching T.V. because our cable just went out. Perks of living out in the sticks I guess. But hey, I'll look on the bright side, at least I want have to wait for commercials to talk to Matt. ha!
