I have no clue why I hate these styles so much. Perhaps because this is the first time that I remember the styles being worn the first time around? I walked into a store with my mom the other day, pointed to a dress, and said "You owned that dress in '86."
I remember my friend Beth and I making fun of all the ladies we saw sporting 1980s floofy hair in 1997. I was like "Why can't they just move on into the 90s and take their hair with them?"
And now I understand- they couldn't bring their hair into the 90s because they thought 90s hair looked too flat.
So here I am with my Doc Martens (which I've had since '99 and the soles aren't even close to worn) and my bootcut jeans and my t-shirts and cardigans, and I'm feeling entirely unhip. I am the lady sporting 1980s hair in 1997. But whatever. In 10-15 years, I'll be in style again (and my Doc Martens will still have their original soles).
