Working Girl

80's Suit Jacket: Thrifted
Tiered Skirt: Anthro (old)
Belt: J. Crew (old)
Earrings: samples
Shoes: ummm, don't remember and I threw them away!

Long ago Working Girl was on TV and my Mom had me watch it with her.  I was probably 14 or so, early high school, the only thing I remember about the movie is thinking three things while watching it...

           1)  That HAIR is horrible, no one will EVER catch me with hair like that.
           2)  Shoulder pads, are you kidding me?  Please dear god never let those come back.
           3)  My hand on my Enzo Angiolini heels, I will NEVER wear tennis shoes to/from work.  
Flash forward 15 or so years and only one of those things remained true.  I'd like to think of it as a case of older-you-get-smarter-you-get syndrome.  I like my feet; they're kinda important and I want to take care of them.  They need to last me a looonnnnggg time, because I plan on using them to tour the world, walk my dog and get into whatever unpredictable stuff life throws my way for another good 50 years or so.  Who knows what other ways I will prove my younger self wrong by then!

Do you have any "never ever" style or life ideas from your youth that have been shattered along the path of life?

  1. Haha, your younger self was merely unable to account for the presence of irony in fashion! We don't even develop the neurological ability for true abstract thought until our preteens, after all. ;)

    PS: That jacket is acid trip amazing.
