As I’m writing this, I’m shaking my head. Shoulder Pads?
Seriously, what the h*ll were we thinking? I just hit 4 stores in 3 hours last week Thursday for Fashion’s Night Out during Fashion Week in New York City. Do I even dare admit that I actually sewed an extra pair of shoulder pads into my already padded oversized cotton t-shirt circa 1986? Yes, t-shirt…and yes, I sewed an extra pair in one that already made me look like a pint-sized linebacker. (And I swear, that thing was not only oversized and padded but fluorescent pink…and anyone who knows me knows that I have a fear of bright colors — no pinks, no peaches, no pastels.)
See, you got me all wound up and this flashback is literally giving me a pain in my chest.
So, between the hair and the shoulder pads, I don’t know what was the bigger fashion and style nightmare.
But, we had even more madness to add to the crazy (beyond the Diva Grace Jones and her foot-wide shoulders). Stay tuned. smh.
