The first store Rebecca went ga-ga over was Justice, (aka Smells Like Pre-Teen Spirit and Angst.) I am not a gung-ho Justice fan, but I have to let Rebecca indulge a bit, so in we went. And seriously, it was like walking into a store where time stood still. All that was horrible and terrible about 80s fashion was there, staring me down. Good lord, these things were awful back then (though I had to have them) and they are just as awful now. Why on earth would designers even return to the decade marked by bad plaid, buffalo checks, stirrup pants, paisley and shoulder pads? Why? Why? Why?
I had a bunch of these studded bracelets... in black... in pleather! (I wore them with my Madonna black rubber bangles... Gag me with a Spoon!)
Forgive me Tickled Pink & Green as I know you are completely gaga over plaid, but there is plaid and there is bad plaid... Are these worn with the above ruffled plaid mini skirt? Or the plaid leggings I saw on the racks?
OMG that was MY scarf!
and I wore this shirt (nice to see the shoulder pants have been removed) with afore-mentioned hideous stirrup pants!
and the below shirt too!
I had so much of this buffalo check stuff...
I so know WHO is going to get this jacket for 5 of her 8 off springs!
and if your little girl is going to have a name written across her little toosh (or in this case down her leg) I think Justice is a bit more appropriate than Juicy... no?! Doesn't it send more of a I'm gonna kick your butt attitude rather than Squeeze my Butt? Seriously, which message would you rather spread? One that tells the world that your daughter is confident, strong and not to messed with, or one that suggests that she wants to be messed with?
What's your favorite 80s Fashion Faux Pas?!
