When it comes to the early 80's looks, my immediate thought is to wear the pieces as I would have at the time. The thing is, that would look stupid (on me-your mileage may differ). Combat boots and kilts have been done (and done, and done) so I went looking for a way to re-work the 80's pieces in my collection without looking like I was headed to an 80's themed party. Enter, the vintage Sasson jacket.
1980's Sassoon jacket-New Life Thrift
90's kilt (part of a suit)-Goodwill
Vintage belt-Hand Me Ups
Earrings- K Mart
Antique Celtic brooch-antique mall in Western Massachusetts
Red bakelite clamper bracelet-Salvation Army
Rhinestone bracelet (really a choker) Gordman's
White linen blouse- K Mart
Fragrance-Knize Ten (I was looking for my bottle of Bandit, but couldn't find it and went for Knize Ten instead. I'd forgotten how much I love it)
Should read "Yea" . That'll teach me to blog and talk at the same time.
They learned us real good talkin' at skoool.
