I was just thinking about the three pairs of different colored socks.

Ties and hats with big flowers for girls (think Blossom) :

I'm not sure what they were called but those plastic round things you could use to scrunch up and tie your shirt to one side. It was almost like a scrunchie for your shirt

I still have mine!!! My mother saved them- and I didn't know it until my DS13 was planning his Halloween costume and needed suspenders. She pulls these rainbow suspenders out of her drawer!! I'm keeping those suckers forever!!

I the skinny jeans! Hey, I wore them as a teenager in the 80's (of course with a higher waist line) and still love them! My mom wore them back in the 60's.

I remember wearing my leg warmers over my skinny jeans back in the 80's. I was very surprised to see them back "in" again.
