Shoulder Pads Are Back, Hallelujah!

My prayers have been answered--the 80's are back! My ass bought a new jacket yesterday, and IT HAS SHOULDER PADS! Yes, you read that right. And any of you who were born without shoulders, like me, will understand my joy. Now, I just have to wait for BIG HAIR to make a comeback.

The 80's were my heyday, peeps. I wish I had a picture of myself back then. SB ruled! I had big rockstar hair and wore lots of glittery band jackets with VERY BIG shoulder pads. I was flash! Rick James was my personal style icon. Since I grew up in a farm town, I was quite the spectacle. I was a TREND SETTER, motherfuckers! Everybody else wore flannel shirts. FLANNEL SHIRTS! The horror. The horror.

Below is a photo of the ultimate 80's shoulder pad-wearing icon (besides myself, of course). I'm going to dig out my old Howard Jones and Duran Duran CDs tonight and dance around in my new chic-as-a-motherfucker jacket.

Where did an English lad see The Colby's? That was not American TV at its best. You made me laugh though.
