I'm not sure whether to hang my head in shame or hold my head high on this one cause like Hollly I was a kid in the 70s and a preteen/teen in the 80s so these all hit home with me again.
Heck I'm still into the music, that's my favorite night to go out clubbing here when they do the 80s thing and they have 2 80s night shows on the radio here that I love to listen to. Not to mention the fact that in the past 3 years I've gone to see Duran Duran 7 times.
My big fashion statements were trying to copy whatever style Duran was into at the time, layering my socks over the cuffs of my pants to match my shirts along with my white "jazz shoes", and Swatches (I still have my entire collection) oh boy did I love my Swatches and liked to wear them all at the same time up and down both arms.
I was a little late bloomer with the big hair (even with short hair I kept it big), but I had that as well...this is a pic from the early 90s even and I still couldn't ditch the hair (lots of Aquanet necessary to keep this up!!) .
