So often when eighties fashion is mentioned people cringe and suggest it's a whole era in fashion that should be erased from our memories and wardrobes. Granted there were some questionable trends, but the whole era certainly doesn't require being written off.
As most of you know I'm a lover of 1970's fashion and that has grown into loving the 1960's and these days I'm seeking out more 1950's fashion. But the 1980's has stand out pieces that are complimentary to modern day fashions and vintage lovers wardrobe as well.
This 1980's cotton frock with a graphic print has been seeing a lot of action recently with a surge of hot weather even though it's officially meant to be Autumn here. I love the button detail at the shoulder and is reminiscent of details you would see in 1950's clothing.
Dress: op shopped
Belt: op shopped
Brooch: Erstwilder gift from Ben
I'm sure many a non-vintage addict or lover one would be surprised that this 1980's frock and to that I would say:
The eighties had some surprises up it's sleeve and some of those surprises make there way into my wardrobe from time to time.
