Fashion Question: What's the One Trend You Wish You Hadn't Missed Out On?

When I think back to the 80's and 90's, there's not much I didn't try. The 80's saw me in pin-covered stonewashed denim jackets, pegged jeans, oversized tees with stirrup leggings, ice cream coned socks (multiple pairs of socks layered on top of one another), and of course my many pairs of LA Gears high-tops. The 90's saw the insurgence of grunge, complete with my grandpa's way-too-big flannel shirts, ripped jeans and Birkenstocks over thick woolen socks. But two trends in particular were missing...

If ever there were a trend I wish I had taken part in, it's the bedazzler. I never had one -- and to this day, I regret it. I'm so sad not to have any sparkly stunners from the 80's.

Doc Martens
These tough-girl boots were HIGHLY coveted at my junior high ... but unfortunately, they were just always a touch out of my price range.

What are the trends you wish you hadn't missed out on? Let me know in the comments!


  1. I'm sorry you missed out on the Bedazzler! I had one, but it didn't look all cute like the one in the picture - I want that one! It's not too late for you to try Bedazzling!

    I also had Doc Martens in college. They were my big splurge item and I wore them almost every day. One thing I do not miss is the 90s!

    There were tons of things I missed out on in the 80s, but I am making up for it now by buying all the things I couldn't afford back then now that they've come around a second time (Swatch watches, Oakley sunglasses). I still dress like I'm 12!

  2. I too missed the bedazzler - I always wanted one.

    I also always wanted an Easy Bake Oven but alas. If I had a little girl, I would get her one for sure.
