Neon is the new Black

The eighties were all about color and when I say colors, I mean Neon Colors. Bright was the in thing, none of this dull black and white that many people where nowadays. Leg warmers and bright colored tights were the thing to wear when exercising. I had an 80’s theme party for work and I ended up heading to Supre and buying a pair of hot pink tights, a long orange singlet and a peach colored small cardigan complete with bright pink nail polish and at that stage my hair was a bright blue. The room looked like somebody had exploded a can of neon graffiti paint over everybody, a sea of brightness.
