Fall Fashion

I'll admit. I love clothes. I'm getting old but I still like to try to keep up with the latest styles and be somewhat in fashion. Up till now - I think I've done a pretty good job.
But ..........I am not happy with what is happening this fall. They are bringing back the 80's and I just can't do it. I grew up in the height of the 80's and I've been there done that. I've worn the leggings. I wore hot pink neon shoelaces in my nikes (white with a red stripe leather). I wore the reversible puffy sweat shirts, the swatch watches, the coke rugby shirts, the neon bracelets, the tight rolled (acid washed) jeans. I've worn the vests. It was not a good look for anyone then and no matter what you think - it won't be a good look now. And as a 32 year old married woman - I don't think I can justify going around in a mini skirt and leggings. (unless it's halloween). I guess for once and for all - I'm going to have to give up. All I have left is to start wearing "mom jeans."
My biggest fear is that next they are going to bring back big hair. And I'll have to start looking like my picture again (circa 1989). I just don't have 2 hours every morning to hot roll and curl and hairspray my hair anymore. But boy was I good at it once. :-)
