Did you hear that neon is back in? As a child of the 80's, I have a great abhorrence for neon, acid wash, paint splatters, and those hideous flashdance shirts (that everyone is wearing again!) Or maybe I should say as someone who is decidedly not trendy, hip or cool, I have no need in my life for passing fads that I can only wear one season. Give me Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O over trends and fads any day.

Enter Old Navy. Where I found THESE SHIRTS. (Even brighter in person.)

And suddenly, I'm a fan. Well, a fan of the shirts. Not really of neon.

At $7.50 per, I bought the pink and turquoise. (I really wanted to by the yellow but it made me look like had gangrene.) Does this make me cool? Alas, no. But I think Audrey would agree: good purchase.

Although, on a completely unrelated note: I have GOT TO STOP BUYING SHIRTS WITH STRIPES. In the last few months I have probably purchased 5 to 10 tops and every single one is striped. It's a sickness, but thankfully not gangrene.

I have almost pulled the trigger on these shirts so many times but I've never seen them in person...are they see-through? Oo low in the front? I'd love to hear a review!

I LOVE bright colored shirts. Bright pink and bright blue are flattering on all-- they know no prejudice. Great purchase (and I agree that we should all steer clear of the Flashdance-inspired shirts).
