Working Girl


I do like a bit of 80's flavour now again when it comes to clothing, and I have fond memories of movies full of shoulder pads and pixie boots that I loved when I was younger.

Working Girl was one of my favourites.......
... although even as a child I thought the massive hair & all the way to the eyebrow makeup was ridiculous!
 So anyway this vintage 80's dress makes me feel like a bit of a working girl. I love the colour.
It has big shoulder pads and batwing sleeves. I love the colour more than anything else though.
Probably not hard to work out that I put in the orange panel (what a fabulous seamstress I am!) when this arrived via ebay and was super tight on my belly / thighs. I wasn't going to give it up because I love it, so I just made it fit!
 Earrings - Forever 21
Dress - Vintage via ebay
Belt - primark
Leggings - H&M (standard range XL - love them!)
Booties - Primark

I also quite like it when the tops undone, but it's so piggin' cold again that I'm glad of the high neck & double layers! I really didn't want to wear my little pixi boots with this but it is still to cold for courts, and I have to walk around lots today so no heels allowed. One day my diva posts will be able to include nice shoes!
thought some big earrings were in order today.

  1. The orange panel works for me! It adds to the 80's vibe.
