Bueller? Bueller?

I know, I we go on the 80s again. I must be getting old. We spent large tracts of our youth quoting from this film - Ferris Bueller's Day Off - and especially from this scene. Do you remember it?

And I know, I we go with the op-shopping again but I found this cute little stick-pin (above - sorry for the placement - Blogger is being naughty again) the other day and it got me thinking about how they just don't make stick-pins anymore. I had heaps of them in the 80s. Not quite as delicate and ladylike as this one, though. More your Snoopy stick pin. If you really like it, you'll also find it in my Etsy store -

Other than the usual 80s fashion suspects, can you think of anything you used to wear all the time that they just don't seem to make anymore (with the exception of fluorescent ankle socks obviously)?

Sweaters with shoulder pads! Standard styling was horrible in the 80ties. Lucky if you were a punk or gothik (which were called grufties at this time here).

@ Bodecea -

Shoulder pads - oh yeah! I had a navy blue blazer that I *loved* with shoulder pads. That's one fad I think we can avoid reviving!!
