Have you noticed? Nostalgia has taken over. Whether you are looking for a summer concert to add to your wish list or something style related....what was old is new again. Though there are many throwbacks that are back in vogue (from choker necklaces to denim overalls) the most intriguing to me personally is the Polly Pocket trend. When I was a kid, Polly Pocket play sets were my everything. I had dozens of them...including a necklace version that I took with me pretty much everywhere. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the brand, many Polly Pocket items have been released in the last several months. Here is a closer look at some of the hottest Polly-related products....
Polly Pocked Themed Clothing
As you can see from the pictures above, these t-shirts from Hot Topic (which you can check out here and here) are totally 90s. The soft colours, tie dyed effect, and whimsical aesthetic definitely takes me back to my youth. There are several designs available and honestly, I want to add all of them to my wardrobe. Each one manages to transport me to a simpler time. A time when I used to walk around with a Polly Pocket play set in my back pocket or in a locket around my neck. Ahh, those were the days. This fashion trend certainly makes it easy to remember the innocence of youth.
Polly Pocket Inspired Makeup
In addition to the many Polly Pocket inspired fashion options there are lately... there is also plenty of makeup. There are themed eyeshadow and lip palettes available from Hot Topic. However, there are also the Lime Crime Pocket Candy palettes. These share that same hard plastic exterior with the bright fun colours. They are classic and totally cute. While I haven't tried out the Hot Topic options, I did a full review of the Pocket Candy palette in Bubble Gum as part of my 90s theme week. Though the packaging was everything, the quality of the shadows was very hit or miss.
Polly Pocket Jewellery and Accessories
Talk about accessories! There are backpacks, purses, wallets, and hats to be found...but the jewellery is easily the most impressive. The pieces shown above are just a few of the designs from fashion designer, Mimi Wade. Each one boasts elegant stones, luxury materials, and of course, Polly Pocket figurines. These classic Polly's are fun, bold, and downright exciting. They bring you back to a simpler time and allow you to float away in blissful nostalgia...without sacrificing your desire to look absolutely fabulous. Though these are out of my price range, I would be thrilled to have any (and all) of the designs from this Polly Pocket inspired collection.
