The 1980’s. Something that kids these days will never understand. Growing up in the ’80s is something that I think we all treasure. There is nothing like the ’80s, especially when it comes to the toys and pop culture. I remember almost every single one of the items on this list, and some made me laugh. Others made me cringe knowing that I am guilty of committing much of the fashion and style that was displayed.
Check out some of my favorite from this list:
6. The importance of nailing the perfect sideways ponytail.
39. L.A. Gear was the only sneaker brand that mattered.
43. You wanted to be best friends with the girl at camp who had this rad boombox.
48. The struggle of trying to keep your T-shirt clip tight.

Oh WOW. I absolutely loved my childhood in the 80s and I rocked the side ponytail like it was my job!

OMG! I love this post! I totally forgot about ESPRIT & L.A. Gear! I still miss my Pound Puppies although I do think I still might have one at my parent’s house somewhere. :) Side note: Do you remember Sweet Secrets? I totally saw a woman wearing one the other day, and it made my week!
