I've been trolling the fashion spot's vintage magazines threads these past few days. I've looked at so many 80s and early 90s magazines that I'm really craving that wind-swept big hair that Cindy Crawford and co. were famously sporting. I tried blow drying my hair back this morning to imitate the look. Unfortunately, it fell flat within an hour. But I refuse to use hairspray! It's much too toxic.
So here is the source of my recent pink obsession. If you were to go back in time and tell high-school-me that university-me is inspired by shoulder pads, hot pink, and big hair, she'd probably assume you're a complete nutter. I think high-school-me would have agreed with Ann-Sofie Back when she said she finds fuchsia really offensive in Bon Magazine's ss 09 issue. But these days I can't rule out any colour, because I always end up liking what I vehemently disliked another year.
