Let’s Go To Plasticland

by Natalie Heather

I found this really adorable shop a few months ago and really wanted to share it with you. It’s called Plasticland. I bet that name makes you want to navigate away – who wants to be associated with plastic? You may also be like, really Natalie, another shop? But before you judge, take a look at the first paragraph from their About Us page, though.

“The first thing we are always asked is, “How did you come up with the name?” Naming the company “Plasticland” was our little tongue-in-cheek way of poking fun at the fashion world and all that it encompasses – from Fake Breasts, to Barbie Dolls, to Paris Hilton, and so on… there is always something in fashion that is so ridiculous and plastic. The name reminds us that Fashion is all just in fun and that we should never take ourselves too seriously.”

Cool, right? They (Rebecca Nyhus & Jordan Berry) also describe the style as retro, punk, mod, rockabilly, gothic, urban, and Japanese street inspired fashions. Not your thing? Give it a chance! From fun bathing suits to shoes, you are sure to at least have fun looking at their collection of finds.
