French braids.
Leg warmers (I've retained a pair from the 80's that I have no qualms pulling on when I have to go outside in the cold).
Certain styles of mullets.
Still love the 60's flip do's, although my hair has never fared well to those styles.
Actually, I like most things from the 60's with a few exceptions.
Dress Clips (I collect them and use them on many things).
Deco style jewelry from the 80's.

Many things I enjoyed in the past have made a comeback at some point. I was tempted to write go-go boots but boots are really hot again (but perhaps not in white).

In the early to mid-80's people used to comment on my long hair, then it became popular again for sometime. In recent years I've noticed more comments on it again.

I kept my leg warmers too!! They come in handy at -30. I have a full length parka with a big fur hood. Not very fashionable....but so very warm. Someone would have to rip it off my body to get it from me.

I've had these pair of beat up 3 hole Doc Martens FOREVER. My husband absolutely hates them and begs me to throw them away every year when Fall/Winter rolls around and I start wearing them to run errands and stuff.

I refuse.

Out of fashion, but I still love and don't care what people think:

1. Teased up/big hair (I have short hair and it looks better teased up and curled. I love it).

2. Peasant shirts (I just love how comfortable they are and the designs on them really are beautiful to me).

3, Dresses with belts around the waistline area (they were popular in the 50's. I love them. I have 2 of them).

4. Knee high go-go type boots (I have a pair and I love them).

5. Sweater blouses that fall down the shoulders (so sexy, in my opinion).

I like peasant shirts too, LinaJo. I love white-on-white embroidery and flowers, especially Polish and similar work. And poet shirts with frilly cuffs.

I wear whatever ... don't care if it's in or out. I figure if I hang onto stuff long enough, it'll come back into style and I'll be ahead of the curve
