Garden Fashion: The Neon Trend

June 7, 2012 | Trends


Oh 80’s with all your garish blue eyeshadow, big fat shoulders and stink inducing jelly shoes….I wish you to stay far far away….except for those neon parts.  I miss those bright colors just enough to let them back in.  But this time, I will take them  in neat and tidy versions (as opposed to paint splattered across a sloppy off the shoulder sweatshirt) and I want them to elevate the natural things around them…instead of giving me vertigo in the black lights of Skate City.   I want you in my garden….I like the way you look there.
