I could have worn this outfit circa 1984, when I was a scrawny 14-year-old: Peter Pan getaway boots; skinny jeans (I had a pair of super tight ones, being a bean pole - except we just called them "jeans" back then, not skinnies); scarf styled super big like this; and a sweatshirt.
Since my last post, I've ransacked my local thrift shop for sweatshirts - which has worked out great for my current style obsession and also for my budget, considering that almost everything in the shop is now 70 percent off, yay!
I found this pink one with pretty design on the back (by Slide Off, a name I've never heard of) in the Plus section. Really? It's oversize but not that big. I also found a few in the Mens' section, for a euro or so each after the discount.
This shade of pink isn't the grandest colour on me - it's pretty close to my skin tone - but I think the navy Laura Ashley scarf next to my face makes it work.
I'm thinking I could overdye this top, with a dark blue, which would make it purple. But I'm not sure as I'm digging the retro 1980s vibe of the pink. What do you think?
