We Are Young, Heartache To Heartache We Stand

I was feeling very 80s today. I don’t know if it’s because I watched 13 Going on 30 at 11pm and proceeded to dream of Pat Benetar and Michael Jackson all night (they were DJ-ing my wedding, which was sort of epic), or if it’s simply because sunny days are running out and I wanted to have as much color on as possible before the chill sets in. Regardless, I had a lot of fun dressing myself.

This top, which I am absolutely in love with as it encompasses everything about the 80s I actually like (and there isn’t much, really), is from Standout Vintage Store on Etsy.  They have a lot of authentic 80s apparel that’s equally kitchy and brilliant, like this hot pink, button town top. And of course, what would the 80s have been without ripped denim on every corner? Literally. These shorts are custom made by DentzDenim, another Etsy shop that crafts its clothes catered to your measurements. Here you’ll find no short supply of ripped, tattered denim for any body type.

The shop owner, Ms. Carolyn Dentz, was sweet enough to supply a 10% promo code for any purchase, so do take advantage of it! Just enter BIGBEAUTIFULBOLDXO at checkout 🙂

And to accessorize the ensemble, what better than hot pink wedges, hot pink earrings, hot pink lipstick…and a neon yellow belt?
