Type of clothing: feather clips
When it was popular: mid-80s
Description: I did a lot of rollerskating in the 80s (I am 36 yrs old). We girls would clip on these "featherclips" on the sides of our jeans, or use them as barrettes. I think they were actually clips for holding marijuana joints, I didn't know that at the time! They had elaborate, colorful feathers that swished when you skated or walked down the halls in school. I remember seeing them in the mall everywhere. I had gorgeous pink, blue, and multicolored featherclips. I kept them until I married in '88!
