The fashion of the 80s can be a bit scary for some but I tend to embrace the trends of yesteryear. Peplum dresses, acid wash jeans and off the shoulder shirts are still pretty hot.

And one childhood trend I really love is jelly shoes. You remember jellies. They were the plastic sandals you wore as a kid. They practically melted on your feet and left you with sweaty toes.

Well, jellies are back. Designers like Valentino and Givenchy are selling jelly sandals and flats for close to $300.

I was apprehensive about whether they would leave me with sweaty feet on a warm day, but luckily they didn’t.

I love the webbed design and have worn the blush flats with everything from a baby doll dress in New Orleans…

What affordable brand or item are you absolutely obsessed with right now? Are there any 80s trends that you still wear?
