Here's a trend that both excites and terrifies me: the return of the barrette. Tell me: did you wear barrettes in the 80s? Now tell me this: Would you wear one now? They say that one should enjoy a trend the first time it makes an appearance in their lifetime, and then pass on it the second. But I'm having a hard time not indulging in this one. It's just so effortless and fun! But at the same time, I do worry that I am a walking giant British toddler when I'm wearing my barrette. But isn't that ridiculous of me? Because isn't all fashion really just about having fun and pushing boundaries and ignoring the rules while carefully following the rules at the same time? Am I over-thinking this? I've put together a slideshow of some of my favorite barrettes and clips and bows available on the Internet right now. Have a peek through and consider reliving the 80s with me! - By Natalie Holbrook
