It's looking like Spring in my Etsy shop!

Mother nature inspired me to add some Springtime goodness to my Etsy shop over the last few weeks:

I listed a bunch of these amazing Redoute's Roses prints - so pretty!

I also listed a big set of these HUGE Woman's Day Birds of America posters - *swoon*

Happy Spring Everyone :)

Vintage 80's Clothing Revisited

A couple of years ago I did a fairly snarky post about clothing from the 1980's - and it has turned out to be one of my most visited posts on the blog. I haven't tooled around eBay looking at 80's clothes lately, so I figured it might be time to re-visit the subject and see what the sellers have going on now.

By the way, in the comments of my last post, several people stepped up to defend the sellers I featured. It was not my intention to make fun of the sellers - they are obviously doing a great job marketing to a demographic that loves what they sell. That being said, the clothes are still hilarious, and I defend my right to make fun of them :)

Nothing says class like a sequined Leopard shirt dress. Is it just me or is this more suitable for Tuesday night at the Bingo hall than a night out on the town? Click the link under the photo to check out the listing - I can't believe what it is already going for, with 7 days left on the auction!

Jumpsuits - how did any of these manage to survive? I would think if I was cleaning out my closet, the jumpsuits would have been the first thing to go. Right in the trash... *shudder* Of course it has a bid - it must be that awesome abstract neon print...

Choice #1 if you want to look like a Poison hair band groupie.
Check out that asking price - yowza!!

Neon pink nightmare. It's hurting me just to look at it. Moving on...

I'm really at a loss for words on this one. A gold metallic suit? Really?

OK, enough bad 80's stuff, it's killing me. Let's try to be fair and look at some 80's stuff that I actually kind of like...

I probably like these because they don't scream 80's, so they probably shouldn't count,
but OH MY aren't they great?!?

Now this I would ROCK. Check out the Ankh earring! :)

This I really like - it has an 80s vibe to it, but is thankfully missing god-awful shoulder pads.
Love the shape and the color - two thumbs up!

I love this skirt AND I love the Mighty Mouse tank top!

And so ends another 80's clothing post... :)

The devil made me do it... :)

I bought a new pixie for myself this weekend - can you tell which one it is? Hint - the devil made me do it. :)
