What I Wore: With Help from my Brother

Before I start this post, I have just a few words: It was 80s theme day.

Leggings, Gina Tricot; shirt, Seduction; shoes, Converse; legwarmers, Ardeens; head band, Lululemon; black and white bracelets, Claires; sunglasses, Joe Fresh

As you can see, I was celebrating the end of the Black-Out today, but it was also because I have very little 80s ish clothing that is actually brightly coloured.

The reason for the jelly bracelets is this:
And the story: My little brother asked me this morning why I was wearing leggings with that top and not skirt, and I told him it was an 80s theme day. He then proceeded to tell me that I should wear my Jelly bracelets, and when I asked why he explained that Madonna wore them in the 80s.

If you were around in the 80s, what sort of stuff did you wear?



  1. Love the 80's style, darling!
    So, two thumbs up on the outfit!

  2. love the vibe going on here, you're totally rocking that zebra print :D and your brother gives good tips!

  3. 80s I just can't really do, haha. Nice inspiration, though.

  4. cute (:

    i dont know what i would wear haha


  5. beautiful pictures
    i like your tights looks great

  6. Love your 80's look! But seriously, I think you can pull that off, even if it wasn't 80's theme day ;o)

  7. Oh I remember those jelly bracelets, had them in all different colours. Most neon hues.

  8. I love it! I was born in 1980, so my childhood wardrobe was full of jellies, rompers, jumpsuits, crazy floral pattern dresses that I'd wear with sneakers, and the like.

  9. What can I say? I think you channel Madonna perfectly. Desperately Seeking... Rosie! xoxo

  10. I had 80 black rubber bracelets (which I lost in a move to my eternal regret because they were the original Maripolitan ones). Also these earrings: http://wendybrandes.com/blog/2008/10/strike-fashion-blogger-pose/
