Retro nostalgia is big right now. Those warm and fuzzy feelings from childhood seem to be everywhere lately. Rewatching iconic films, hearing music that bring me back to a happy scene from the past prompts my brain to relive a certain time in my life and make me smile. Perhaps that is why my love affair with pink and Barbie never left.
Speaking of Barbie, I am always on the lookout for collaborations with the famous blonde. She has had quite a few over the years, and the most recent is a cool streetwear collection with Missguided. My favourite pieces of the collection feature a distressed denim jacket and shorts, and quilted satin bomber and matching skirt. These items are available at asos.
One of my favourite films from childhood is Grease (it ties with Beauty and the Beast). I will never get sick of rewatching it and admiring the fashion. Quirky brooch brand Erstwilder have come up with a licensed collection of 17 pieces inspired by the musical. Naturally I am drawn to the pink items, and I also loved the Tell Me About It, Stud brooch. Sandy’s outfit is so iconic and sexy. Shop the collection here.
