I still love some of the fashions I wore in the early ’80s:
- Stephen Sprouse
- Skinny jeans
- Pistol belts
- Gladiator sandals
- Anything from Trash & Vaudeville or Fiorucci
- Lace-up boots
- Motorcycle jackets
But I have no desire for jazz shoes.
I’m also over buffalo-plaid shirts, despite my 1983-1984 enthusiasm for one blue and black buffalo-plaid shirt that I wore with a black pistol belt from Canal Jean Co. (I hope I didn’t wear jazz shoes with that top; I feel sure I carried my gray plaid LeSportsac.) But, if I were given a choice of buffalo plaid or death, I would pick this sequined shirt by Ashish.
A lot of shiny would be some consolation for the lack of sex-ay. But not much consolation. I’d rather have the Keith Haring skirt and neon socks and heels that Madonna wore in her Borderline video.
I would happily wear that whole outfit today. The hair, too!
