The Way Back Machine – Best Sellers 1980

Take some time out of your busy day to hop into the Way Back Machine and travel with us to 1980. We can’t guarantee the weather will improve, but at least we can mock the crazy fashion choices to make us feel better (just don’t look in the closet when you return back to 2017…)
