I just scanned this for work, and it made me giggle. Condom Bolo, anyone? This was quite revolutionary in the 80's I think!  Cheesy





Kinda hard to see, but they are jewelry with hidden condoms in little pouches, in a very 80's southwestern inspired style. I am praying that bolo ties don't make a comeback!

Haha... that's actually pretty funny!
Oh gosh I really hope that bolo ties don't make a comeback either, they're quite hideous (then again, some things from the 80s that I think are ugly are coming back into fashion ;_;).

Living in southern Arizona, I can tell you that bolo ties never left. When a guy's all dressed up in western style, they can look pretty nice! I remember the stir when the condom jewelry first was introduced. I thought it was rather scandalous at the time. Now I just think it's funny and cheesy.

I've always thought the Southwest look was awesome...IF you live in the southwest! But, I was obviously not in the majority on that!  Wink

I clicked this reading "Costume Jewelry" and then I got here and couldn't help but think "Condoms arn't  Costume jewelry" once I left....

My old eyes, oh the eighties, I am vintage.  Woo!
