Back from the Past

Trends have magically come "back from the past", and are seen everywhere present day. Today we will examine three of these such trends.


"The 80’s.... Neon was all the rage, and shoulder pads were not only reserved for quarterbacks, but for office ladies. And we saw that in 2008, the 80’s trends have made their way back into the national consciousness."

Okay, so at the moment the 80's are in:




"Ah, remember the carefree summers spent running around in the back yard catching rocks in the bottoms of your sparkly pastel jelly shoes? Did you have a pair in every color they sold? Little girls need cute shoes in every color, just like they will when they grow up!"

Okay, so "Jelly shoes" are now back from the 80's and 90's believe it or not. Try finding them in the 1$ section of target, at the local Payless, or online, and you may just find a pair in your size. Surprisingly confortable, I am relieved that finally something COMFORTABLE is "in" for a change. I sure hope this lasts! Try your best to keep the pebbles out, and you'll be set.
