Ebay Eighties

I often buy my kids last season’s clothing on Ebay, and during my last visit I stumbled onto some great 1980s “vintage” clothing (1980s is “vintage”…boy I feel old). While I don’t recommend that you actually *wear* any of these items in public (unless you are an extra in Hot Tub Time Machine), they certainly are good purchases for collectors. I happen to have owned each of these items and wish I had saved them, too.

Boys’ Vintage Benetton Rugby. I had this rugby in blue in 7th grade. So did 50% of my homeroom class. (And remember the icon Letter B sweater? I had it in 2 colors with matching cords, of course). Image courtesy Defunkd.

Guess Vintage Ankle Zip High Waist Jeans. I had these in acid wash and in striped denim. I was trying to look super cool.

Vintage Laura Ashley Linen Sailor Dress. And when I wasn’t trying to look cool, I was trying to look like I belonged in the English countryside. I had this exact Laura Ashley sailor dress (with navy trim rather than white). I cringe when I think that I wore a sailor dress at age sixteen.

What 1980s clothing do you have stashed in your closet? Someone might just snatch it up on Ebay.

    OMG, I had those Guess jeans in striped denim too! They are just awful! Back then, they were my most prized possesion though!

    My daughter just left for her 20th h.s. reunion wearing the black/grey Benetton letter B sweater that I dug out of a box in the basement…couldn't find her ankle zip jeans, though.
