Late – but Merry Christmas! Early – but Happy New Year! For Christmas I made a quick trip up north to meet up with the family. And what do you know…I ended up taking more pictures playing in my mom’s closet than family portraits.
I spent quite some time roaming around my mom’s closet and playing dress up. Some of the below I got to take home and some of them I have to work at convincing her to part with them next time.
Let’s start with the fun stuff – the pure magic of the 80’s! The 80’s is so awesome because the colors remind me of Rainbow Brite and because (duh) I was born in the 80’s.
Here I present vintage Moschino:
Peace, love, AND smiley face! and I know you want me to model this so here I am:
Here’s another one – with Franco Moschino himself imprinted (he also started Moschino the year I was born – yaaa)!
How can you hate on something with rainbow buttons? Exactly, don’t be a hater.
Whereas I’m not ready to infuse 80’s at its best into my wardrobe yet – there were pieces that I can see myself in. Let’s get serious! And by serious I mean as in CHANEL serious. Check out mom’s collection of Chanel tweed jackets:
I managed to snatch one of these from my mom. I mean, BORROW.
I forgot what brand the leopard dress is – but it’s quite sassy.
An UNWORN Jil Sander coat in a gorgeous creamy color that my mom wouldn’t let me take. Boo.
I’ve been looking for a pleated maxi skirt for awhile, and this one (might have been Helmet Lang, don’t remember) caught my eyes. The chiffon and velvet combo detail masks the basic black.
Dolce & Gabbana tux – perfect for the masculine look.
Elie Tahari cutout dress:
Going back to the favorite – CHANEL – jewelry edition:
Not Chanel but still just as great:
I barely took anything from what I showed above, but am happy with what my mom allowed me to take. I’ll work on showcasing them here in future outfit posts!
Before I go though, I have to show my biggest come up – Ann Demeulemeester boots! They’re actually half a size too small, but I’m convinced I need them. Only for you, Ann.
