what's that saying...



"If you wore it the first time around you don't get to again", or better yet, "if Amy Grant wore it in any of her Heart In Motion videos you shouldn't"? Target is the latest retailer to bring back my childhood, because today, I ran into an entire rack of black stirrup pants! What in the world? I thought it was bad enough that H&M brought back Mickey and Minnie sweatshirts, and American Apparel brought back the scrunchie, but stirrup pants? If you need more evidence that the 80's are back Target also has a long one button black blazer with the sleeves already rolled up for you. I am now keeping my eyes peeled for white reebok high tops and the sequel to Pee Wee Herman's Big Adventure. Looks like I won't have to wait long.

I used to have a black silk one-button blazer with rolled up sleeves - wore it with black leggings, black combat boots, and...wait for it...my Pi Phi pledge jersey. Ah, pledging in the 80s.

(I also wore that jacket with some cool bodysuits and garbage-bag waist shorts.) :)

I'm shocked stirrup pants are back. I'm not sure if it's because I remember pics of me IN them or if it's because I'm old enough for something to come back around.

I was just thinking about these today as I remembered my first day of kindergarten. I wore stir-up pants for the first time and I wore the stir-ups over my shoes. My whole family laughed at me when I approached the breakfast table.
