Throwback Thursday

Like a lot of people I often post an old photo on a Thursday for what has now become known as Throwback Thursday and it got me to thinking!!

I have decided to do a blog post each Thursday looking back and indulging in a bit of nostalgia for years gone by and as I am very much a product of the 80's ( I was born in the mid 70's) a lot of what I feature will be from that era. So where better to start than with a look at what we thought was the height of fashion in the 80's!!

Like a lot of people my mum had a catalog and there would be much excitement in the house when the new season one arrived, which would see me marking what I wanted and then begging my poor mum to order it for me!!! My most favourite thing from there was a pastel pink pair of boxing style trainer boots!!
So you can have a chuckle at my expense here is a some of what I thought was cool to wear during this era!!

Yes Bermuda shorts and a Banana Republic t-shirt which my dad brought back from America!

Check out the crop top and Ghostbusters Watch!

A playsuit which I think was from Topshop!

Sweatshirt tucked into my jeans and an 80's perm!



Sadly what I don't have photos of are my Miss Selfdridge puffball skirt, many hideous Brosette outfits and the oddpins jumpers that my mum used to knit for me!!




 If there is one thing I have come to realise over the years its that there is nothing new in fashion, if you look at what the the teenagers of today are wearing you can see the influence of eras gone by in their high waisted jeans and crop tops!!


I hope you have enjoyed the first of my trips down memory lane, did it make you remember clothes you had forgotten you had once worn?

Don't forget to check in again same time next week to see more Throwback Thursday stuff.
