I was so excited to see this 1980s photo of Madonna. Not only is she wearing her famous Maripolitan rubber bangles, but she’s wearing matching rubber earrings.
Here’s a 1986 photo of me wearing the same earrings. Woot!
You can also glimpse one of them in this picture.
I’m sure I got those earrings because I saw them on Madonna, but, because I lost them, I’d forgotten the connection. (I also lost my 80 Maripolitan bangles in a move, but I think it was at a different time.)
At least I held onto the heart earrings that Madonna wore in her “Borderline” video.
I’ve shared photos of them before.
I still wear those to Madonna concerts.
But, man, do I wish I had that rubber jewelry! I swear, my favorite materials for jewelry are 18K gold, platinum and black rubber.
The “Borderline” video had such great fashion. I still covet everything Madonna wears in it, including the hat. If you’re not familiar with the video, check it out now.
