I feel like I am having a very John Hughes esque moment here. While I can't be sure how authentic 80's I am looking here, since I was only in diapers in that wonderful decade, I think that the stripey dress and the ray bans aren't hurting.
I was so excited when I began pulling out the pieces for this outfit and it all just came together. Isn't that magical when that happens. The color of the tights, and the shoes matched just perfectly. I love the look with out the little vest and belt, but its more flattering and it brings it back to something that is wearable in this decade.
here is a close up of my little juicy couture hoops. My mom-in-law got them for me a few years ago for Christmas and I still love them. I adore that I have a mom-in-law that is super cool, and loves shopping as much as I do. Every year we split Thanksgiving and Christmas between our families, and we spend T-giving with the Hubby's family. And every year all of the girls get up for black Friday shopping. So much fun. We get up and hit the mall at 4 am and drink loads of coffee and shop til our hearts content. Such a perfect tradition.
Close up of the belt. I thrifted it a few weekends ago from good will! This is my first time wearing it. I usually opt towards the thicker belts, but I have thrifted so many cute skinny ones as of late, that they are really growing on me.
So sorry for the gratuitous amount of pictures in this post. Can you tell that I was really loving this outfit?
I wore this to dinner with the hubby and of course this adorable little girl told me that I look like a "rainbow". So cute. Thanks, I'll take it.
ok, so on a closing note..... the outfit details.... Shoes: Bakers, tights: Target, dress: F21, vest: thrifted, clutch: thrifted buffalo exchange, belt: thrifted.
