    The Trend Mashup…

    Fashion is like radio waves, it is always recirculating. 80’s fashion is back bringing in tow slinky glasses and waist pouches also known as fanny packs. These pieces are literally everywhere and can be seen mostly on fashion enthusiasts and on social media such as Instagram with its many variations.
