electro-pink




vintage blazer; dress, cuff, earrings, and glasses:Forever 21; Bebe wedge pumps

You have to love the 80's for stuff like this. This blazer/jacket is the only pink item of clothing in my closet. The massive shoulders appease my desire for a "strong shoulder" trend inspired piece. In fact, so massive they were I removed the shoulder pads for comfort and the volume was still quite sufficient. So where did I find cause to wear this voluminous pink item of clothing, you ask...
None other than MRS. GERTRUDE'S 80th BIRTHDAY DINNER!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOMMA TRUDY!
This is F21's version, errr knockoff, of the AA Nylon Tricot figure skater dress. It is actually quite comparable and i may dare say i give it and extra point for appropriate length. The similarity of material is dead on.

i adore this i saw something similar to this when i was in ft lauderdale but i was wayy to big for me. I was inspired by Rihanna's fusia jacket (which you will rarely hear me say) and i had to have one.

Lauren said...
