Ok.  I’m being totally honest here.  I have cringed as I have watched the 80’s trends creeping back into fashion.  I was a little girl in the 80’s.  All I can think of when I see those styles are my older cousins and their BIG hair.  I mean, a little bit here and there has always been fun, but when I look around me and feel like I’ve gone through a time warp…yikes!

At least that’s what I used to think.  In shopping for my Etsy shop, I have found myself mysteriously drawn to 80’s things.  For example, this unicorn bracelet:

Isn’t it awesome?  It doesn’t get much cooler than that.  Still, even though I found myself liking items such as this, I thought, “I’m still not giving into it.  A little 80’s flair is one thing, but the entire look?  No way.”

Then, along came yesterday.  I had picked up a little sweater that I thought I might 8o something fun with…maybe cut it up and make something out of it…who knows?  Well, then I got the bright idea to just try it on and see.  Here’s what I came up with:

As a sit here writing this, I am still shocked.  It looks good.  It looks really good.  So, I guess I have officially given in to the 80’s trend.  When done correctly, 80’s fashion can look really, really good.
