Who doesn’t love the chance of dressing up? Especially when there’s a challenge added into the mix…
I recently went to a birthday party, one of those “must be dressed 80’s” types. I am not one for fancy dress, I would never carry off the cher, maddona, or be seen in a shell suit look.
So up into the mothers loft to see if there was anything stashed away, I came across this little number…..
This Jumpsuit by Pret A Porter
Complete with a gold sash belt, I could not believe my luck! I tried it on and it fitted perfectly. Mother was telling me all the stories about places it had been worn& how it had been styled in the past. I had it dry cleaned, and just added a chunky gold necklace and some gold bangles. I love the raglan sleeves and it had padded shoulders! I am just lucky that we must have been the same size around the same age.
The only thing I didn’t like about it was the draped open back. In the summer with a golden tan maybe, but not in the freezing cold weather we have had. So I compromised with a little orange cami underneath
I was really pleased with the look. Black and gold would not be my first choice of colour combinations, but it was just so eighties!…..
