Inexplicably, the '80's are back with a vengeance. And for about a moment or two, I was charmed. But folks...a polite reminder -- the '80's were a reaction to the swagger of the '70's. The DIY aesthetic was a reaction to the overblown pomposity of an era. But '80's for '80's sake is a reaction to well, being fresh out of ideas. (And the 'ironic' boat shoes? Just a tip: weren't cool then. Even worse now.)
Rule #3: Stop ripping off the '80's. Rip off the '70's.
