What got me thinking about this was the bowls I made the other day. In the post where I got the idea for the DIY was a suggestions to paint the bowl neon to go along with the Neon Trend. And I did! I painted one bowl I made for my youngest sister neon green because I thought she'd like it.
Need proof that the eighties is making a comeback? Have you seen those kids on the Disney Channel? They look like mini Madonna's!
Or this image from New York Fashion Magazine comparing then and now:
I don't know if it's because I feel like the 80's wasn't that long ago (30 years isn't a long time right?!) or if it's because I've been programed to think of the 80's as the tacky decade that should be forgotten.
The 80's gets a bad rap because of trends like this:
Work Out Gear
Big Teased Hair
Men with Big Teased Hair that Look Like Women
Jellies (Jury's still out on this one- I had several pairs of these when I was younger)
And of course 80's home decor, how can we forget?
Now I know that with any trend/ decade that makes a comeback it's usually in a more subdued and updated way. Like how Mid-Century has been the hot trend for a while- do people who grew up in that decade roll their eyes at people like me who think it's way cool?
But the 80's? I'm still not convinced.
What's next? 90's grunge?
Lord Help us all!
What do you think? Do you like to see trends make a comeback? Are there some you'd rather see forgotten?
