Response to the Daily Post: New Sensation
Ah, sweet youth. No matter whether you grew up sporting a fedora, penny loafers, poodle skirts, bell-bottoms, leg-warmers, skinny jeans, Madonna-inspired net shirts and rosaries, goth garb, a spikey mohawk, or even a wave that would put the Bieber to shame, you made a fashion statement, unique to you. Describe your favorite fashions from days of yore or current trends you think are stylin’.
I am not much of a fashionista or trend setter for that matter. Being born in the 80’s was pretty much neon. Neon shirts, neon pants, neon everything! Below is an image I found on Pinterest that has accessories from the 80’s and that is what I remember.
I am not much of a shopper so sometimes the clothes I would have were hand me downs or used clothes we would buy from second hand stores. I was not ashamed of that and not ashamed of it now. If clothes is wearable, why not use it.
As they say, history tends to repeat itself and so it did when I was growing up because I got to wear bell-bottoms and dark make-up which those were from the 60’s and 70’s. Oh and the long hair and parted in the middle, sort of. 😉
So, making a fashion statement or being a fashion diva, well, not really. Just wear what makes you feel comfortable and unique.
