80’s Mall Madness

25 May

Ah the 80’s.  A simpler time when getting dressed meant throwing a large t-shirt over some leggings, and doing your hair meant finishing off a bottle of hair spray…. times were simpler then.  And judging by these AMAZING pictures of mall-goers in 1989, a lot more entertaining. 

Look at this hair!

Do people still get letters in high school?

So much to love here. Man tanks, quasi mullets, black sneaks…perfection.

This picture is amazing. First of all, what the heck is Tape World?  I’m guessing like Blockbuster only exclusively with VHS tapes?  Also make sure to notice the handsome devil in the background, in the tiny shorts and mustache.

Sweater Weather

18 Jan

It’s been cold in Boston lately… -4 with wind chill last Sunday!  In other words, perfect sweater weather.  Many stores are having blowout sales to clear out winter merchandise, so it’s a great time to add to your winter wardrobe.

Here are some of my favorite finds:

Fun stripes and a cozy fit- perfect for snuggling by the fire!  On sale for $35 at Lands End Canvas.

This v-neck pink sweater is perfect for cheering up a gloomy winter day.  The pink color is on sale for $50 (also available in navy for $35) at JCrew.

This sweater is a classic, but the cropped fit makes it fresh.  Black looks good on everyone. Only $20 (with code shopsale) at Ann Taylor Loft!

 Chunky Short Sleeved Sweater

This light cardigan is perfect  for layering and great for the office.  This pearl color matches everything!  It’s on sale for $50 at White House Black Market.

Louis Vuitton Animals

Louis Vuitton is celebrating their centennial in a pretty unusual way- by fashioning their purses, key chains, and clutches into animal sculptures!   At first glance, you don’t realize what the animals are made of…what a creative idea!
