Spring Trend 2011--That 80s Pop

11 April 2011
I have been working on this board all weekend because I am in love with this year's Spring color trend of color blocking--which I will write a post on later--and mixing vivid, vibrant colors. Zara in particular has an amazing color story going on and I am excited not to be the only blogger talking about it. Let's be honest, the 80s fashion was horrendous although the music was amazing. However, the one thing the 80s got right when it pertains to fashion was COLOR.. I  heart color. There were positive things about 80s fashion. For instance it was decadent, original, organic and fun. I miss that aspect of the 80s--especially now that everything is homogenized. So without further ado..The 80's trends updated...
