80s Forever!

I ♥ the 80s!
Well I guess cause I'm an 80s kid. I've been looking for some inspiration for a new line of products for a local "POP-UP" designer's shop. I started with a simple color palette... CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow and black). Then some how that let me into a kind of 80s look and feel... so I am going with it. It's still a work in progress... so stay tuned for new 80's thowback papergoods!

Back to the 80s... I found some of these great pieces on Etsy that all related to me. Yes, it's true... I owned a fanny pack. Can't forget my Vans.. and funny my daughter has a pair now. Had to be stylin' in my Ray Bans and chillin' with my mix tapes. And one of the only videos games I ever got into... Mrs. Pac-Man... loved it! I even had the pac-man game watch from the Sears catalog! My dream car, the DeLorean from Back to the future. But seriously, the John Hughes movies were the best! Like Sixteen Candles, Pretty In Pink and Breakfast Club. I could reminisce forever! I'd love to hear about your 80s must-haves or favs!
