Style Inspiration: Salt N' Pepa

It's totally not on trend or chic right now, but for some reason late last night I was overcome with the desire to push it real good. 

Chalk it up to overexposure to the 50s/20s/70s worship that seems to be on constant rotation during every fashion week, but something in me is calling for 80s excess and cheeseball-ery. That's a word now.

Furthermore, when did matching outfits become embarrassing? Because I know I certainly am embarrassed of the matching outfits my cousin and I used to wear, but part of me wishes that it was still socially acceptable.

The rest of me totally understands why it isn't though, so don't worry.

Also, when it comes down to it, I really hate 80s style trainers that designers have come out with recently. So maybe it isn't my personal style but I guess I just like people who take fashion risks. And catchy 80s pop.  Even if I just can't with these damn sneakers. Who wants to spend $300 on these?
