It’s been around for quite some time now, this trend channeling the 1980s. You can’t escape it. Especially when stores are selling shirts like this:
I even broke down yesterday and bought a pair of hightop sneakers. Red ones. And they may or may not (they do) have a wedge heel in them. Anyway, where am I going with this? Well I was inspired by this resurrection of my childhood fashion and thought why not make a birthday card from this -specifically for us children of the 80? The inspiration is endless, but I chose a few of my favorite things from the decade including Dukes of Hazzard, crimped side ponytails, Madonna, and all things neon.
Here’s my card surrounded by actual items being sold today. See what I mean? Straight up 80s. And if you like any of them, they’re all from Urban Outfitters. Shocking I know.
If you have a friend born in the 80s who has an upcoming birthday, do check out my card on Etsy. At least check it out to see the little surprise on the back.
