How did trends happen before social media was here to spread them? In the age of the Teen People and J-14, we would hang posters of our favorite celebs on our bedroom walls to use as style inspiration- copying them to the smallest detail- ie the Kabbalah bracelet everyone started to wear a la Madonna. Or the LIVESTRONG bracelets created by Lance Armstrong which now seems to take on a new meaning. Are these trends due for a comeback or are they best left in the past?
Slap Bracelets: we all had them, and we all broke them. They hurt but we wore them anyway.
Jelly Bracelets: Plastic, ugly and had to have it. Anything jelly was a must.
Neon Cord Bracelets: Sporty yet fashionable, and cheaply made, but somehow I still think these look cool. What is wrong with me?
Toothbrush Bracelet: It was cool because you had to make it yourself. Also calls to mind the plastic bottle top stretch bands we made out of the caps.
Fake Tattoo Bracelet: The full set was what it was all about and it is making a comeback now. a 90s girl style requirement.
Power Beads: I guess they are supposed to have some spiritual influence but to me they were just what I scored when I took a trip to China Town in DTLA.
Tiffany & Co Heart Bracelet: The standard for a Bar Mitzvah or gift for a 13 year old in the early 2000’s. It was basically a right of passage, and if you didn’t have one, you weren’t stylish.
Kabbalah Bracelet: You were fools if you spent money on an actual one, because I just used one of my old friendship bracelet strings to make this. None of us 13 year olds knew what Kabbalah was anyway, we just saw Britney and Madonna wearing it.
Livestrong Bracelets: By Lance Armstrong, for the fight against cancer in 2004.
Now we just need to bring by the china town net shoe:
