Hi Everyone! I’m getting ready to take a few days off this week and enjoy a little staycation. Below I’m sharing some fun links and retro-modern items to check out at your leisure. I’ll be back next week with a brand new ’80s Movie Style post filled with fabulous screen shots, plus a super-informative interview with a 1980s retail design expert. Until then, it’s time to celebrate the end of summer (and my birthday later this week)! Wishing you all a lovely week ahead…
