I was born in 1977. This makes me definitely a child of the 80s. And one of the fashion trends of the era I never got to participate in (thanks to maternal disapproval) was the wearing of jelly sandals. And I got to wear almost all the trends:
- Michael Jackson glove? Check.
- Remember the colorful, plastic charm necklaces? I was rockin' em.
- Eva Joia clothes? Oui Oui
- Acid Wash? Uhhhh... yeah
The only thing seriously missing from my style arsenal was jellies. And everytime I think about it, I feel a pang of regret.
I remember watching other little girls walk around in their jellies, and thinking they look so cute. I was reflecting on that a few minutes ago, and I decided, "Damnit, I'm 31 years old... I am going to get my arse a pair of Jellies".... LOL
