It’s been an awful autumn so far, wet wet. No doubt winter will be cold cold. then it’ll be time for summer. But summer can be so cruel, cruel.
Why, you might ask, am I talking about summer when we haven’t got through winter yet? It’s my sneaky segue into today’s retro themed outfit ala Bananarama.
Watch the video then see if you can spot the difference between me in 2009 and those young English girls in 1983. Hmmmm, I definitely need to do something about my hair. Hairspray anyone?
So here I am in all my dungareed, teased hair glory…
Top & bottom: I think dungarees/ bib ‘n brace count as an entire outfit, much the way a dress would. Never fear I will be carrying a denim jacket aound with me today. If I was aiming for authenticity re Bananarama I would swap that t-shirt for a man’s business shirt. And I bet you didn’t know these denims are stone wash! And another fact… these overalls were spotted from me by my AK! You go girl! Sigh, the eighties, how we hate miss you
Accessory: Glamour Girl denim cap perched just so on top of my teased hair but unbleached (unlike the bananarama girls)
Late late update….
It’s so late it’s tomorrow, but I have a breaking denim news story that I just HAD to get up onto the blog.
I wandered into work this arvo (technically now yesterday) and my work pal LC had done a spot of shopping on my behalf . She bought me something in which my wardrobe is experiencing a severe shortage – denim shoes. And don’t they go so well with the poorly received at work gorgeous stonewash dungarees?
So incredible are these shoes I am going to give you all a close-up!
