I was born in 1961, so it seems strange to use the term “throwback” when referring to the 1980’s, but it is. Today’s outfit is totally thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill) but from two different decades. The blue and white Houndstooth blazer was thrifted in 1989, which you can probably tell by the Dynasty/Falcon Crest shoulder pads. Remember when they introduced Dianne Carroll as Dominique Deveraux; or the pool fight scene or the first time the “B” word was used, or when they went crazy after Rock Hudson revealed he had AIDS? Man oh Manischewitz, that was definitely some “must see TV!”
The skirt and shoes were just thrifted last year however, the styles make them look a little dated as well. The white shell earrings were purchased at Rehoboth Beach also in the ’80’s and match the buttons on the blazer.

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday, we’re on the down stroke to the weekend!
Yesterday after work I stopped for gas, paid $3.67/gallon, getting just enough to get home or to a cheaper station. This morning it was $3.69! It’s times like these that I miss living in New York and taking public transportation. Delaware has DART Bus service but I would rather drive than risk being hit over the head with a gun for a bite of sandwich – don’t believe me…it happened on Monday, read the article here
Do you ever drive around burning gas looking for cheaper gas – crazy right! If I did commute to work on public transportation this Merona tote would be perfect to carry. It’s not as though I have a lot but if I did, it’s very roomy. It could also be used an an overnight bag, what do you think?
Animal Print booties were purchased last year on clearance at Deb Shop and the pantsuit is from the back of the closet – the shoulder pads dates it. Worthington scoop neck top was $4 from JC Penney and Merona tote was part of my shoe haul from Target.
