Has anyone else noticed that parachute pants are coming back? I'm not sure how I feel about this.<br><br><br><br>
Oh! And those awful primary colored polyester gym shorts like I had to wear in middle school! Oh, I hated those. I don't think the new ones are polyester, though.

I grew up in the late 80's, but I remember most everything on here!!!<br><br><br><br>
Jellies - I wore those ALL the time, and had many blisters. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
Pony tail... ON THE SIDE!<br><br><br><br>
care bears ruled.<br><br><br><br>
Plastic bracelets<br><br><br><br>
I had this really freaky black, and neon colored dress.<br><br><br><br>
SLAPBRACELETS! I was obsessed!<br><br><br><br>
What are those thingies, that were plastic, and you put part of your t-shirt in it... They were round, and sometimes had rhinestones on it....? I dunno, but I wore that with spandex shorts, and a fanny pack. LOL.<br><br><br><br>
Best thing about being born at the time I was- is being able to appreciate Saved By The Bell!

LOL - I was trying to figure out what those things were called too - I used to wear them with my oversized New Kids on the Block t-shirts.<br><br><br><br>
To the jelly wearers - Did your jellies rip all the time - I seem to remember that after one wearing, I would have these rips in the heels. Yet I would still wear them!! they would be falling off with each step and I would try to gut it out until they were competely destroyed. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Also does anyone remember Candies?? They were like Jellies, but the weave was bigger??<br><br><br><br>
man this thread is taking me down the memory lane <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

You could qualify as a back up dancer for Paula Abdul-or maybe that was just me. I still remember all the moves from all of her music videos. Oh, and remember Top Gun? I was so in love with Val Kilmer well into my teens after seeing that.<br><br><br><br>
I had a flourescent orange fanny pack that I wore everywhere. I still have it, but I don't wear it anymore. I had the most uncomfortable Jellies. They cut into my skin a bit, but I wore them every other day.<br><br><br><br>
Were the eighties when we had the slap-on bracelets, or was that the early nineties?
