Okay, Then and Now Thursday has undergone a makeover.

A couple weeks ago, my good friend and fellow writer, KM Wilsher, called it “Throwback Thursday” I thought, “Oh wow, I love that.” So, she let me steal it. She’s got a gift for coming up with sweet one liners–Oh, and brainstorming titles for my novels ☺

So, for our first entry in the newly named theme for Thursday…

Madonna with braceletsJelly bracelets.

Okay, so, how many ladies out there remember loading up their wrists with a zillion black jelly bracelets and heading out to the roller rink?

LOL. I’m raising my hand.

Waving it actually—oh, and laughing with the memory.

Anything to look like Madonna in the 80s right?


  1. Amin-Ksh–My French is rusty, but I think you’re saying she’s a really good singer—and yes. I do agree. 🙂 She’s fantastic. Glad you stopped by my blog! Have agreat day.

  2. Oh yeah, Weronika, I remember the comeback of the jelly bracelets!
    I’m sure you were too young to remember the ’80’s version 🙂

    I didn’t wear that many jelly bracelets in the 80’s I was into leather studded cuffs and chains. . .you know the rocker/goth/punk girl 🙂
    I did do the jelly shoes!

    Yeah, Lynn, anything to look like Madonna, or was it Vince Neil?
    — no matter they kinda looked the same LOL 🙂
    Some reporter back in the day called it the “alcoholic housewife look” hee hee

    Love the 80’s and “Throwback Thursday” 🙂

  3. You just sparked a memory of a Q&A article I once read in Bop Magazine. (Yeah, it was a loooong time ago.) They were talking to the lead singer of A-Ha, and he said one of his favorite accessories was black jelly bracelets.

    Well, that did it. After that, everyone was wearing them. 🙂
