Wardrobe Wednesday - about as 80s as I can manage
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 'I <3 Jesus' dress which I first showed off here.
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?
Some more outfits I've thrown together this year
For a sneaky inside other wardrobes try the pleated poppy or lovely Nin at Sailor Spy

Love it - you dress the way I wish I had the courage to!
Yay - the Jesus dress - I love this, tis sooo fun! Great Cyndi Lauper restyle - high tops, coloured tights. I agree there was much in the 80's to mock, but if you scratch the surface there are some great looks to work with. And yes I and completely all over the century with my dressing - keep 'em guessing I say!!
I love your hair cut by the way (I meant to comment on an earlier post and forgot). That blazer and those shoes are all kinds of awesome - the 80s suits you well ;)
OMG - what a cool look! LOVE the shoes. LOVE them! And the embroidery on the back of the blazer - perfect!
Let's follow each other!
