I thought wonderbra was a 70s thing??

And here birkenstock was all the rage only recently, a few years back, I had no idea why everyone was suddenly going on about those sandals, never heard of em before and suddenly the ugly things were everywhere. If anyone had wore those here in the 90s you d been the laughing stock of the town. I guess you could say better late than never, but in this case never would have been just fine ;) (they came after crocs and uggs here)
