A love letter to the late 1980s

Dear 1980's,

I just wanted to let you know that, no matter what, you were and always will be my favorite decade. My affinity is particularly strong for the latter half of you, the glorious late 1980s. I am so very grateful that you bore witness to my sometimes rather horrifying tween awkwardness and yet still managed to be utterly fun and fabulous. Even better, you continue that awesomeness to this day.

I love you, late 80s, in part because you have stood the test of time. Your many gifts keep on giving. Here are some totally awesome items from the 1980s that have a special place in my heart and are some of the many reasons that you have a special place in my heart.
