Confession: I am a very visual person. I collect images online and offline like some deranged fashion magpie and just look at them lovingly. As I have found out during a long descent into the black hole that is online copyright law, looking is ALL I can do. My main takeaway – unless you took it, don’t use it. So I just have to rely on copyright-free images and, thanks to the internet gods who both giveth and taketh away in equal measure, POLYVORE. I love the ability to create mood or outfit sets and just share them so everyone can know what I’m on about and I don’t need to play a cruel version of online charades. I was never any good at charades.
It was a very timely discovery as I wanted to dedicate a post to some of the trends that I used to see my mum rock and how they have come back today. Since there would be no way my mum would let me share her outfit posts, I got creative – literally. The result is as follows:
COLOR & COMFORT
Makeup-wise, it was, and still is, all about the cat eye, the bold lip and the big hair.
Accesories MUST HAVES: Sunglasses (so you don’t get wrinkles by squinting all the time), a great scarf (for a chic touch) and a trusty leather handbag (just big enough for your wallet, lipstick and book).
The music, speaks for itself really.
Funny how fashion comes round and round, isn’t it? Moral of the story: never throw anything away. If you have the space that it. I don’t want to be held responsible if you get caught under a clothes avalanche and there’s only your cat there to find you.
