Back To The 80’s: Fashion Over 30 Styled From The 80’s

Jumper dress – Primark
Belt – Primark
Leggings – Primark
T-shirt – Primark
Boots – Barratts

 At first when I saw this seasons 80’s style jumpers I thought “oh not again!!”

 Been there done that…

Now after buying 3 items of knitwear in this style, a jumper dress,cardigan and shorter Jumper I am quite loving this look.

 I have even been around the charity shops over the last few day’s looking for some original Jumper.

No such look there I did manage to find and amazing polka dot KOOKAI dress, 2  jacket with the shoulder pads in and an amazing shirt which I’m sure will be featured very soon…

    I'm wondering whether if I wore something first time round that makes me too old now?! I dress in a much more boyish way and love the military stuff, which I wore in the early to mid 90s!

    Blimey I feel ancient. I can remember wearing a pink angora-ish woollen dress in about 1981. I thought I was hot. It shrunk in the wash and went quite rigid but I wore it to death!!

    How fantastic do you look? I love the way you've belted that dress, we'd never have done that back in the 1980s! x
