I thought I’d furnish my dear readers today with a small selection of brilliant and hilarious retro patterns. These magazines were given to me by a friend, and are great reading. The distinct 70s and 80s fashion are very funny and did brighten my day. Enjoy!

    Thanks for the pictures. Hilarious! Especially the red, puffy-sleeve jacket. 🙂
