Have you ever stood in front of your closet, eyeing your wardrobe with dismay because you simply have nothing to wear? Have you ever thought your clothes were just too drab, too plain, too boring? Well, then Way Back Wednesday has a solution for you! If you suffer from a shortage of blinginess, then jump into the Seen On TV Express Time Machine, and travel with us back to the 1980′s, when hair was big and sweatshirts were sparkly.
That’s right–this week, we’re talking about none other than the BeDazzler. Now, don’t get me wrong. The BeDazzler is still available today, and it really is a good way to inexpensively recreate some of today’s fashions. Instead of paying upwards of $200 for designer embellished jeans, or dropping a small fortune on a sparkly “Princess” t-shirt, you can use the BeDazzler to create your own custom style. This infomercial product is one that has actually stood the test of time. In fact, the BeDazzler was first sold through direct marketing in the 1970s, and it was voted one of the “Top 100 Gadgets” by Mobile PC Magazine in 2005.
While the product may still be alive and kickin’, the 1980′s infomercial marketing the wardrobe enhancer deserves a proper burial:
“Don’t be dull, be dazzling!”
Now that I know how to cover an entire blazer in rhinestones and silver studs, I just need to find a product that will allow me to quickly and easily create that perfect side ponytail.
