Singer Maluca sashays down the street with curlers in her hair in her El Tigeraso video, but the style statement that really caught my eye was her orange-red-floral-on-black jacket.
The color and print reminds me of the ’80s shirt that I wore in October.
Next time I wear that shirt, I’ll pop in some curlers and do it Maluca-style. The question is do I go for plastic like she did or should I branch out with Diet Coke cans like Lady Gaga?
Too bad Diet Snapple bottles are too heavy! I’ve got plenty of those around.

I can'[t believe I pulled a craving for diet snapple out of this post.
Hmmm, maybe stale “Peeps” can sub as rollers?

Hi there-I love the floral biker jacket and I think you would look so cute in curlers, lol!!

“Curler’s in your hair- shame on you!” Actually, it doesn’t seem that bad… more like big HairBling.
Coke can curls was a look that Brittany Murphy also rocked in the makeover scene in Clueless.
They all have this vintage Betsey Johnson twist that I like!
Looks like the floral leather jacket from Erin Magee’s FW09 Mademe line
(the final product had a slightly larger print)
wicked shots. i love both your jackets! and rollers look so good on some.. like mary kate with those coke bottles too.. hope you’re enjoying your holidays darling wendy and that the sales are good.

Possibly bright red cans since you’re the goddess of red lipstick. Happy birthday, voted for you x
I thought it was Betsey Johnson at first. Love singer’s jacket and your shirt too. I just got an old black dress with tiny red flowers from Goodwill and am planning to make it into a maxi skirt, but love large floral pattern in your post.
thanks for your comment!

i used to wear those colored plastic ‘butterfly clips’ to set my hair in the 1980’s – seemed to work out okay.
love the orangey-red on black floral! it’s vintage and ‘holiday’ all at once! perfect with rolled up jeans. steph
p.s. my word is ‘sidnancy’. uh oh.
Aack! I was at the grocery store the otehr day and saw a case of Diet Snapple and IMMEDIATELY thought of you and Jeninne. Proudest blogging-related moment of 2010, hands down. Haha.
