Currently loving: the 1980s.
I sometimes wonder if I hadn't been born too late because there's something about 1980s pop culture that totally fascinates me (in reality, I spent most of the '80s sucking my thumb and learning to count my toes).
I loooooooooved Melanie Griffith in Working Girl, I groove to the techno-poppy-rock beats of Madonna, Pat Benatar and Duran Duran on my cable provider's '80s music channel, I still wish there really is a Sweet Valley, CA. I remember falling asleep to the big drama of shows like Dynasty, Dallas, Falcon Crest that my mom watched - nothing like heavy eye makeup and jeweled-tone claws tearing at each other's big coiffs and chiffon gowns.
I guess I should clarify - I love my idea of the 1980s. I was really young then and we just moved to the States - everything looks bigger and better from a child's eyes. And now I "live" through the '80s thanks to the idealized 1980s world in The Carrie Diaries and recently stumbling upon a treasure trove of teen queen Molly Ringwald movies on Netflix that I can watch any time I want. I can sit back at stare in awe at the big everything-ness of that timeframe - the hair, shoulder pads, heels. Pop, color and possibilities seemed to be everywhere.
