Think Pink!

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.

Love all the pink! Hahah fashion is full of contradictions. Something we hate one day, the next we're wearing it. And yay for anti hairspray, I refuse to use it!

My mom always says that fashion is an induced epidemic, and I agree... things that once were all the rage have a tendency to come back and rear their ugly, be-shoulder padded heads. If you had told me years ago that I would thrilled the late 80s and early 90s will come back and I will love them, but now I am grabbing onto the bandwagon and hollering about how much I want to dress like "Blossom."

Great shots, girlie- adorable and inspiring, as usual!

ah, your post just reminded me. Check this out:


It looks weird, but apparently it is meant to wear inside hair for big hair. The volume it gives seems to be nontrivial, you might be interested.
