80tallet var tiden da AHA regjerte MTV med "Take on Me" og filmene Fame og Top Gun gikk på kino. Ballgensere, steinvaskede Levis og svarte lærremmer var et must for alle motebevisste jenter. Egentlig hadde jeg lovet meg selv at jeg aldri skulle begi meg inn på 80tallsmoten igjen, men jeg må innrømme at å gi etter å små doser er helt greit. Hvis du som meg ikke føler for å ta det helt ut, kan du satse på et par hvite pumps, lærremmer(obligatorisk) og en vintage tshirt med trykk. Ønsker du derimot å kjøre full 80tallsstil, er det bare å se på bilder av Madonna, Duran Duran og Whitney Houston fra den tiden.

It was the time when AHAs (Norways most successful popband ever) song "Take on Me" conqured the world on MTV. Lightwashed Levis jeans were the hottest thing in fashion and every cool girl on the planet wore black leather wristbands. Hair was BIG, shoes were white and off course we thought we were very fashionable. I never thought I would wear anything from this area again, untill I saw these white shoes, the print tshirt and the leather bands. How wrong can you be? Off course they are a uppgrade from the 80s with my vintage 70s style skirt, however I stand to be corrected, because I do have to admitt that I love this look! For inspiration and a trip down memory lane, you just have to look at old photos of Madonna, Duran Duran and Whitney Houston.

Hey dear, of course, you're absolutely right: such a cool look. Did you do something with your hair? It looks different to me. Kisses.

Silje-we are officially twins-not just by being Gemini and telepathically linked, but in this outfit with the white stilettos you are an unofficial Essex girl-yay!! This so rocks the 80s and I adored the white shoes-I still do now!! You are a true style inspiration, Silje!!!
BTW, 'Essex girl' uniform is traditional white stillettos and denim skirt-Essex is my county where I live-I hope I haven't confused you-ha ha!!

You really are a "Revival-esque creature" Dear Silje !!!
And with such envious position, This Happy Cherry has to make many jealous persons !!!
ps: I frankly adore "the Living Daylights, " A- Ah" 's music theme of James Bond's "Tuer n'est pas jouer" . . .

A Bientôt, Antoine
