From the time that I was really young, I had an obsession with the 80s. Something about the music, the style, the aesthetics of products, and simply the way of life back then has always been something I was drawn to. Don't get me wrong, I love being a 90s baby but I wouldn't hate it if I got the chance to live throughout such an iconic time in history!
I have been in such a mood lately to recreate a dope denim on denim 80s-inspired look. I feel like especially in LA, there's so many unique little spots with so much character that you could pull off more of an edgier style rather than just simply wearing a dress to a really trendy spot. Luckily for me, I didn't have to shop far. I raided my mom's closet and found all of her treasured classic 80s jewelry. I was like a kid in a candy shop!
I had one piece of my own that I had been dying to wear but just could never seem to find the right way to wear because I didn't have the right accents - my acid wash denim jacket (which I actually scored for $10 at Urban Outfitters - for once the shopping gods were on my side!).
I paired it with a white crop top, high-waisted distressed denim and black heels. But my accessories were the most fun part.
Chunky, dangling earrings paired with a vintage Chanel bag... need I say more?
I'm convinced I was born in the wrong era... but any opportunity I can get to mix a little 80s into my day... I'm here for it!
