80's baby


"This is real 80's. I like it!"

Those were the words out of my b/f's mouth as we rushed out the door to the Rihanna concert last week.

He said the red lips, and the big chain (his words not mine) and the leather jacket gave this look a real 80's feel.


I was going for more of a tribal look with this skirt, but hey I'll take the 80's...


wearing: kenneth cole "chain", j crew tee, zara leather jacket, skirt c/o eshakti, jessica simpson heels
worn to: rihanna concert

  11. Oooh, I remember thinking earlier in the day....I wonder where all the leather jackets are? Then I realized it's summer! I bet they will be all the rage again in the fall, but it looks great on you now! =D I also love the pattern on the skirt!

  13. I like the edgy feel from the chain necklace and leather jacket in this outfit, but the skirt is what makes it. It's da bomb! (Just making my 80's contribution).
