And I loved my yellow-hot pink-orange Esprit sweater and my Swatches too. And yes I had several Swatches and I wore them set in different timezones. I even wore them as anklets over my scrunchie socks with my red high top Reeboks.

I do have to say - in my defense - I only wore leg warmers when I went skiing and I never owned a single pair of those stirrup pants. I did however peg my jeans until I practically cut off the circulation to my foot. I worshipped those pants they came out with later that had the snaps on the hem. So much easier on the leg! Plus they had many pockets and you would carry lots of shit in them. Those were great concert pants. Way before they patted you down I was always able to sneak in a camera.

I loved my swatches especially the scratch and sniff ones It completed my stirrup, leg warmer. ton sur ton outfits I used to sport. Let's not forget the must have accesory of the 80s to really pull the look together: The Gear Bags !

what's the top picture? It's a red x.

Other than the members only jacket you just picked out all of my brands I was so spoiled as a kid. If it didn't have Guess or Espirit on it I wouldn't wear it! There was another label that I wore too. I can't remember the name.

Slep braclets were banned at school because they were dangerous. Probably just an excuse because they annoyed the hell out of the teachers.

I was into slap braclets, troll dolls and wearing Guess jeans.

It was a picture of Reebok aerobic hightops with the velcro straps at the ankle.


I also loved my Bass shoes.
