Everything circles back around

It is interesting how many fashion trends are circling back around - color blocking, capes, red jeans, brooches.  I wore all of those things in high school (along with whatever else I found in Harper's Bazaar). 

In the recent issue of InStyle magazine, I saw the following feature -

Here are my sculptural  earrings from high school -

...and my sculptural necklace -

Then I saw this feature -

Here is my favorite ring from high school -

I remember the day I had my photo taken wearing the "sculptural necklace".  I got a couple of comments like "that's an interesting necklace" - meaning "strange".  I don't think anything I wore in high school was "in style" among my peers.   I think I was trying to be different.  The other day, my oldest daughter said, "I want to be unique.  I don't want to be like everyone else."  So, is that something I've taught her or is it genetic?

Well, it's no secret that everything does come around with fashion :)

But i was thinking this exact same thing last night as I was watching Sixteen Candles. Everything they're wearing is what a lot of people (and hipsters) are wearing right now!

It would be fun to watch all of those John Hughes movies now to see how we look like them.
