I love the 80’s retro items that come and go in the past few years. The 80’s return fashion wise has made me giggle, seeing as everyone spent the last 20 years or so complaining about how awful it was fashion wise, and then bringing it all back in again. But the best thing about it, is that they got to take the best parts of the fashion and rework it to be even better, and correct any really out there fashion faux pas if you will.
I felt that way when I saw Tres Blah’s stand at collabor88. Whimsy and I stopped off there last week after a really bad shopping trip elsewhere and had such a bad buyers remorse downer going on, but the event fixed that and so fast. I couldn’t resist this outfit, it is made to be worn all at once, but with some creativity , you could definitely get more use out of the skirt or top, or just add more. I think it would also look great with a denim jacket.
I chose this colour because back when the neon was all the rage, well when it started in the first years of the 80’s I was in that late primary school age, not yet in high school, and I wanted some neon stuff so badly. My Mum had said no on many an occasion and then one night surprised me by giving me some socks in the neon green and this neon coral and I was over the moon.
I am also wearing the new hair from Wasabi Pills, this hair is MESH, so its an all in one, and I am excited to say that so far all Mesh hair I have tried on has fit me o/. This style is beautiful, and the bangs are delish. You can see a video on how it moves HERE .
Also new are the fantastic semi slouch ankle boots from Paper Couture, now the designer behind the shoes of Paper Couture is of course Emma Gilmour of Surf Co and Mon Tissu, so if a fan of either you really need to run over and try these boots on. The leather they are made from has such a soft silky look to it, rather than your usual stiff leather, and you can just imagine how well it hugs the foot. They are available in 5 colours and you can try on a DEMO in the Paper Couture Mainstore.
Lastly an item I forgot to mention I was wearing the other day, such an oversight because it is simply gorgeous and available at the Jewelry fair currently running. Bliensen + MaiTai amaze me with every new release, their collection for the fair isÂ definitelyÂ worth making the trip for, and owl jewelry like this is so collectible in RL you just need to get yourself this necklace.
