Having been a tween/teen in the 80’s, I know my way around a mix tape.
In the words of Miranda Lambert, “record the country countdown cause I couldn’t buy it yet” rings so true. While my tastes trended more towards 80’s pop artists like Cyndi Lauper, Spandau Ballet, Til Tuesday and U2, I was one of those kids taping Casey Kasem’s Top 40 every week so that I could hear my favorite songs on demand.
When I saw this fun coin purse from Kate Spade, I was instantly smitten. Printed with “Mix it Up,” it takes me back to the days of scrunchies, lavender eyeshadow and going to Pretty In Pink theater.
How fun it would be to pull that little reminder of 80’s nostalgia out of my handbag every day. Luckily, it’s just big enough to tuck my favorite No. 7 lipstick in too!
