Do you Remember?

It’s been another great week being nostalgic for things that seemed amazing back in the day.  All photos were posted on the Your Vintage Life Facebook page and you added some great comments as always!

Hands up who loved Duran Duran in the 80s…?  Every inch of YVL’s bedroom wall was covered in their faces!!  They seemed so sexy, named after a character in a cool film that we hadn’t seen (Barbarella).  You loved Simon Le Bon and John Taylor mainly but our heart will always belong to Nick Rhodes…1545170_690415424311882_164244212_n
Did you watch and love the film Lost Boys in the 80s? It as a favourite of many of you and girls were divided in fancying pretty Jason Patric or bad boy Kiefer Sutherland!  It also started quite a few goth fashion trends in many of you too.

The rock band/comedy gang made up of Fleegle, Bingo, Drooper and Snorky and a great reminiscence but a bit psychedelic for some! The music was groovy and we loved the Hanna-Barberra fun.  All together now – “tra la la, la la la laaaa”1017526_690419427644815_132084335_nWe all loved lipstick lollies back in the 70s/80s and remembered painting our lips with them thinking you were so grown up!!  They were rock hard though and it was a job to get that last piece out of the base without breaking a tooth.  Swizzles sweets rock!


We’re going to be controversial and take you back to the 90s for crazy duo Zig and Zag!!!  Ok its not hugely vintage but anyone in their early 20’s have no idea who they were…and let’s face it, breakfast telly hasn’t been good since then!   No-one admitted buying their record but it was still a big hit – strange.
