Cheesy = kitschy; uber faux to be enjoyed ironically, nostalgic – in a good way
Corny = out of place, outdated, nostalgic –but not in a good way
Feather Accessories = Corny
When I was coming up, the feathers were on ROACH CLIPS and everyone wore them in their hair. I had no idea what the actual use of the clips was at that time, and I’m glad my mom did not allow me to wear them back then. Every time I see a young’un wear a feather I chuckle to myself a little and flashback to when I begged my mom to wear roach clip feathers to a roller skating party. Ah, if only life’s dilemma’s were that simple.
