When I was younger, I thought A-Smile Gelati Jeans and overalls were the best thing since Bubbalicious! I am not alone, check out http://fashionredemptionvintage.blogspot.com/2010/05/smile-gelati-overalls-holy-grail-of-80s.html who refers to A-Smiles as the Holy Grail of the 80’s :)
I just returned from vacation in La Quinta, CA and had the pleasure of indulging in copious amounts of magazine reading!!!! Instyle, Vanity Fair, Allure, People, Phyllis Hoffman Celebration, House Beautiful, Veranda… just to name a few.
Low and behold, my 80’s fashion favorite seems to be making a return. Cheery and bright-colored jeans are one of this year’s hottest trends! Even Kate is wearing the hot trend for spring – colored jeans! Check her out here: http://news.instyle.com/2012/03/15/kate-middleton-red-pants/
So, I couldn’t help but begin to reminisce, much like http://stefaniewildertaylor.com/2009/04/these-were-few-of-my-favorite-things/ and started to think about all the things that I used to love in the 80’s! Bubbalicious Bubble Gum, Sticky Finger Jeans, San Francisco Riding Gear Jeans, James Jeans, Baby Soft perfume, lip gloss – thick and glossy; and on and on. It was a great trip down memory lane. What are some of your past favorites that may have had a little influence on who you are today?
Have a sweet Day!
