    oh, I think I get it. Retro Hip Hop fashion colors? (I’m so dense…):p

    Thanks, all! I got the color inspiration from a 1994 Espirit clothing catalog! I miss the 90s every day LOL

    Congrats on your POD! It reminds you of the 90′s, while it reminds me of the mid 70′s and the mid 60s when I had a favorite top with those colors.

    Congrats on your bold, fashion-inspired POD, Robyn! I can’t say this looks like what I was wearing in 1994 (when I graduated HS), but seeing your pick and looking back on those days I wish it were! (Come to think of it, I did put on a bright lime green, long, a-line dress on the last day of classes for a hoot– one of my mother’s 60s bridesmaid dresses, actually. –Pam, you’re right! It’s like this 90s trend was a reboot from 60s & 70s psychedelic colors.– I used to give Mom a hard time about those lime bridesmaid dresses. “It was a hot color then,” she would explain. It may have been the only fashionable thing I ever wore in HS. I love my mother even more the older I get.)
    Thank you so much, Robyn, for your pick that is not just a bright & wonderful pick-me-up but a chance to reflect. And we can start making our bright and lively jewelry now for when the trend comes back around. Maybe we will inspire the next reboot! All to trace back to you and your serendipitous reunion with the Esprit catalog from the past.

    Sorry! “Conceited oversharer.” Great pick! –Liz

    I remember Esprit – my HS age daughter wanted their fashions but also loved the “grunge” look. Denim with brights make for a cool throwback POD. Congratulations!

    1994 brought the birth of our first born which was call olors and lights. Esprit colors are always bright and bold. Love this pick!

    all colors and lights! She still loves bright colors and so do I! Love the purple daggers!

    Hi and congratulations on your colorful pick. The 90s were a rough time for us what with both of us getting laid off and selling a house we all loved. Then moving from NY to N. Carolina. Which I hated. I had to leave my family and dogs behind. We moved to Asheville in ’94, our grandson was born in ’96 and then moved to Charlotte in’97 to be with our grandson. I didn’t have time to think about colors. My husband remodeled parts of the Charlotte house because some rooms were disaster. In the early 2000s I got involved with beading. But my granddaughter was born in 2001 so we made lots of trips to New York when she was tiny and then a toddler. I had back sugury twice in 2004 so they came to visit grandma. Sorry I wrote a book. Love, love, love your pick.
