Acceptable in the Eighties…

There is a rule in fashion which dictates that if you remember wearing a trend when it was first in fashion, you shouldn’t be wearing it next time around. Well I don’t mind admitting that I’m a child of the eighties and I do remember wearing the current fashions when they weren’t retro. I also won’t hold back in confessing that I’m not one for following rules in RL or SL and revel in being a fashion rebel.  One of the wonderful things about SL is that it gives us the opportunity to experiment with fashion, so if you like the style why not check out some of the SL Fashion Designers that are championing the return of the eighties. These include Fab.Pony, Emery, Maitreya, MG Fashion and Mirai Style plus Pretties by JB who has released today the pieces I’ve featured in this post.
