Spin Cycle--Then and Now

small cycle

This week's Spin Cycle is about then and now.  You know, how it was then and how it is now.  I've been thinking about this a lot and the main thing that has come to me is fashion. 

THEN: Jeans

NOW: jeans

THEN: shirts

NOW: shirts

THEN: boots

NOW: Boots

Really, the colors have changed--somewhat, but the styles--right back to what I was wearing in high school--they just have cooler names now--like boyfriend shirts, boyfriend jeans, skinny jeans, slouch boots, etc.  I think it's amusing to walk through the stores and see the clothes I wore in high school back on the racks.  Although acid washed has not really made a come back--yet.
And blessedly the big hair has, so far, stayed in the 80's.

Head on over to Jen at Sprite's Keeper for more then and now spins.


  1. I thought the exact same thing when I caught my nephew Cameron wearing gummie bracelets in the same way my sister and I wore them back in the 80's. :-)
    You're linked!

  2. It's true! Things do have a way of coming nieces and nephews don't believe me when I tell them this, but yeah, the 80s are kind of making a comeback...that and the plaid flannel from early 90s...

  3. Hubby and I were just talking about french rolling pants. He swears he's gonna take me out and wear his pants like that. I swear, I'll make it worse by teasing the hell out of my hair.

  4. Scary isn't it? I hope they don't bring back the big hair. LMAO

  5. Ugh please tell me the acid wash will never return. I can't believe how it's like 1985 in my classroom every day with what they are wearing. And they really look no better now than they did 25 years ago. Really. No better.

  6. And bright blue eyeshadow. That should NEVER come back into style.

  7. I so hope the acid wash look doesn't come back. Though I wore them myself, I think they are atrocious. And I am wondering if the leg warmers will make a comeback...

  8. The first pair of jeans you have pictured? I still have those somewhere! I grew up in the 60's and have seen a lot of styles come, go and come back. And the big hair? My husband's first wife still has it, in all it's glory!

  9. I'm so glad the big hair hasn't come back yet. I can't afford all that hairspray!

  10. My niece showed up at a party in a jean skirt with converse sneakers and ankle tights on over the summer and was appalled when PB took out a picture of me at that age wearing almost the same outfit! Great spin.
