The dream of the 90’s

November 11, 2013

Last Saturday I went out with some friends to an 80’s and 90’s disco. This was a local thing, organized to raise money for charity. It was a bit quiet and we left soon after the band played but we had a good time and danced a little bit. I particularly enjoyed the opportunity to wear the hideous jacket Mr D found in a thrift shop in Florida, that I thought it was too bad to leave behind – plus it only cost me $1… Although I was wearing this as fancy dress, I’m sure it would be a success down in East London lol.

The photo isn’t brilliant but it’s what we could manage, after a few attempts. Details: Jacket – Thrift store in Florida, Sweatshirt – Boy London (from a charity shop), Skull leggings – TK Maxx, Shoes – Office (via Ebay), Matrioska Bag – Accessorize, Golden Hoops – Ebay. I remembered on the same day that I was missing some sort of cap with metal plaques and a miniature backpack to complete the look, but alas, it was too late!

As per Amy’s suggestion, I tied my hair in a double bun. I’d never done it before, it has to be said. To complete this post, a 90’s remix is in order. Enjoy!

    Ha, ha, you’re like me. Who cares about the quality of the event as long as you get to dress up!
    You’ve hit all the 90s buttons with that look. The double buns are cute.
