    My totally fabulous grandmother passed down her jewelry stash today, and I found this wonderful kinetic Eve Kaplin brooch in the lot! Thought of this thread (and Linda particularly!) immediately. So glad I can better appreciate this beautiful piece thanks to this site!

    I was a teenager in the 80s but I'm afraid all I have left are some photos and vinyl albums :)

    This thread inspired me to buy (and list) this choker on Etsy (click on the image for the listing). Thanks for the inspiration and the eye candy!

    Super bold print zebra stripe and hand printed floral nylon dress by Botto.

    Probably one of the brightest in my collection!

    I went to that site, thanks to your link, and wound up buying a pin, because it perfectly matched an outfit I bought about an hour before -- well, I am not into combat boots (see below).


    When I went to order it, though, a message appeared that said something about opening their vault for the sale of some (all?) of the 1980's pins and once they are gone they are gone. When my pin arrived it came with this card:

    So, it looks like they are not reproductions, but 1980's originals.

    Thanks for the link!

    Kim, are those for customizing an oversized tee into fit and drape of choice? I had a couple of those that I loved. They worked great during my pregnancy in 1990, with leggings underneath.

    Bed Bath & Beyond is currently offering tee shirt clips as an accessory for a 1980s Halloween costume. From their website:

    Found this 1982 oversize E.T. pin the other day! I had forgotten about the giant pin trend..

    I bought this gorgeous 80s choker recently for a snip, not knowing the designer, Farah Lister, apparently quite collectable but I know nothing about her. I have seen a few examples, some of them incredibly highly priced but then others so so much lower, I have no idea why??

    This screams 1980s MC Hammer to me as legs very large but label stated in label resource here early 90s.
    Any ideas?

  16. Well the wall went down in November 89 and labels using “made in West Germany” could have been used well into the first year or so afterwards. Hammer came out with his “Cant Touch This” in 90, but the pants in the video were very harem in design. I think yours are earlier than late 80s/ early 90s but by how much, not sure. Probably had a matching top.

    Thank you. The widest part of the leg is 22.25 inches laid flat so I would call them Hammer pants. Thank you.

    Just found this late 1980s Donnybrook coat at the thrift store. While researching it, I found out Rihanna owns the same one!
