Sticking with an era for inspiration I’m working within some of the 80s parameters this week.
There will be exceptions:
– shoulder pads (all ready have my own naturally robust shoulders padding not needed)
– crop tops and exposed midriff – yeah not really thinking anyone would appreciate a large exposure of white stretched mark tummy (I know you can thank me later)
I’m not actually a great fan of the 80s fashions – power suits, MC hammer pants, oversized fluro t-shirts, overalls!, stone-washed jeans, pants that don’t quite make it all the way to the ankles…..
Last week I was all 1950s and I do really, really love the shape but I also have to have fun with the way I dress. I am not a uniform wearer. I am about personality and fun. I like dressing up and I like variety.
This is my ‘day-wear’ version.
Footless tights – hand-me-down
Shoes – Emily the Strange $7 from a school fair
Dress – $0 fabric and pattern gifted everything else from my stash, handmade
Jacket – bought in Amsterdam in 2004 from Vera Moda I think
Do you stick to a similar style of dressing most days or are you like me feminine one day, channelling a bit of punk the next?
