80’s Redux

I have always been a huge fan of 80’s music but fashion wise I would have put it on the bottom of my decade pile. Until recently. My friend and I always have a cocktail girls night every February to celebrate our anniversary of arriving in Vienna. We usually have a theme every year because I am a total sucker for themes. This year a dear friend decided 80’s was going to be the tone of the night this year.


At first I was horrified! 80’s. Legwarmers ? Fluro ? Cheap plastic jewelry ?  Then I decided i needed to dig a little deeper into 80’s and embrace all about i loved. The breakfast club, MTV, 80’s punk scene, Blondie, Brooke Sheilds and Molly Ringwald. All of a sudden I am digging so hard on the 80’s it started to hurt.


It hasn’t hurt that the 80’s trend has hit high street pretty hard lately. Style forecasters predicts a lot of 80’s shapes and trends making a huge return this Spring/Summer. Think ruffles, bralettes, power shoulders and statement sleeves.

Although I ended up wearing a different dress from Zara for 80’s night. I raided this silk gucci print blouse from my boyfriends mothers closet. It even came with awesome shoulder pads and I absolutely ended up adoring it.


I decided to pair with a basic leather skirt and black tights for a more modern twist on 1980’s style. I also had to add my gold chain leibeskind bag because it has a rocking leopard print inside.


What I love about fashion is that it is constantly in flux and its cyclical nature. It’s fluid and fun and frivolous and can even make me love the 80’s fashion again.
