Each decade brings its own quirks and fads. Some of my favorites from the 80's:
(Sass, just nod your head and look pretty and pretend you know what we're talking about)
Fashionable and ankle-friendly. Monica had them. Monica had everything awesome when we were kids. I had 5 brothers and sisters instead of cool shoes. (And, I wore hand-me-down tough skin jeans from my BROTHER, but that's an entirely different post subject.....and something that will be noted in my upcoming memoir with details of how my parents ruined my life.)
A ball park essential. I looked for these in the Boulder Powell's Candy Shoppe and also at one in La Jolla last summer. I love old school candy shops. No where to be found. They must be resurrected.
I'll go ahead and use my merchandising background to guess these suckers had a total "real" cost of about $.12. Big money made on this fad. Genius.
Let's all agree that Crocs will be highest on the list for the first part of the 2000's. (What is the appropriate term for this decade? Shouldn't we know this by now?)
Low rise jeans, animal prints......what else?
