I wish I had the courage to show you a photo of me from the 80's.
But I don't.
Rest assured that, for a very young girl, there was an abundance of neon lycra, masses of leg-warmers, uncountable terrible hair-do's, many of them featuring BIG hair (I was so cool I was allowed a perm when I was 12!) and heaps of ill fitting matching skirt and jumper combo's made of polar fleece. Uuuugggghhh!!
But you know what? Not everything from the 80's was so hideous.
Hits of the 80's will always have me busting out some Molly Ringwald-esque moves on the dance floor. Always.
And how amazing is this early 1980's cotton dress I found op shopping not long ago.
Is it leopard print? Is it floral?
Yeah, its both!
I added the peter pan collar because I thought a bit of "school girl" was another style to throw in the crazy mix.
It is just such a fun print with bright pink, blue and a splash of yellow .
And it feels so lovely and comfortable on, light and breezy and perfect for the beautiful Autumn weather we have had lately.
(That's me enjoying a little bridge action in the sun. Don't tell me that you don't like hanging out on bridges squinting into the distance.)
Anyhoo, I am up to my armpits in frock mending and altering so I must fly.
I will show off all my freshly hemmed and finished frocks soon.
