1. Jordache EVERYTHING.
My best find so far is this amazing sweater:
2. Leather Skirts
Although I have yet to work up enough courage to wear these, I often wistfully pull them out of my closet and try them on. There will also be a couple of vintage leather pencil skirts at our next sale!
I saw this feature in Lucky Magazine where this chick was wearing an electric blue leather miniskirt with a really conservative lace top, black tights, and black shoes. I then spent an inordinate amount of time looking for the same skirt (only vintage). Couldn’t find it in suede, but DID find this sick leather one.
Even better, it’s from CHIA, which is an amazing leather retailer from the 80’s. You know those like, red leather suits with ridiculous shoulders that they wore in Dynasty? Yeah, CHIA whored that shite like no one’s business.
Although I didn’t get the blue skirt in suede, I did find an amazing yellow one:
Finally, I bought this black one at the VV for like 6 bucks. Sigh. What would a chick’s wardrobe be without a black leather pencil skirt? This one has some amazing snaps on the back slit… because a skin tight leather skirt isn’t suggestive enough:
3. 80’s Band T-Shirts
I. LOVE. THIS. SHIT.
4. Personal Art from the 70’s
This started out kind of weird. I found this piece of Canadiana artwork at the VV, and thought it was awesome. When I turned it around, it had an inscription on it from June 4, 1973. Apparently Frank Vandersteen used to be a Reverend… then someone scratched it out. Was it Frank? Did he leave the church or did they chuck him out? We’ll never know.
Then, I found this freaky craft art owl. No inscription, but it was painstakingly made with hundreds of nails and a bunch of thread. Awesome.
