Fashion Inspiration - 80s Seventeen Magazines
a friend of my sister's gave her a whole box of old Seventeen magazines.
there are some amazing treasures in here.
check out this, my fashion inspiration from the june 88 issue. the spread was entitled "desert bloom" and it is totally going to fuel the fire when i pack for our southwest road trip this fall.
the captions are pretty rad: "for those who like a little passion with their fashion--the latest in salsa-inspired looks."
i think i like a little passion with my fashion indeed.
by the way, recognize the model?
this next look is one of my favorites.
i am dying for a blouse like this.
but THIS next one is my absolute fave.
this is how i want to dress every day of my life.
caption reads "fanning the flame -- passion flowers in full bloom." mmmmmmmm.
i can tell the 80s were my formative years...i am still enchanted by some of the looks from this era. tons of chunky jewelry, flowers, overabundance of accesories and color and flair...this never gets old to me.
here's another spread from the same issue.
this one also kills me and appeals to yet another approach to my feminine/girly/cutesy fashion sense.
they call this look "romantic peasant clothes of the french countryside".....nice.
the caption here is charming: "you don't have to close your eyes to imagine strolling through the rustic beauty of Southern France. It's as easy as slipping on a floral print crop top and skirt..."
okay if you're sure, seventeen, i'm willing to give it a try.
this little jumper makes my heart glad. i'm obsessed with criss cross backs lately, and the sky blue color is perfect for late summer. the tiny hat on the bun, not so much....
"inspirations from nature..." i love.
i'll leave you with this gorgeous photo. i need to make this moment a reality in my life, soon, preferably with a sash around my waist and culottes and a cropped sweater falling off one shoulder.
there's a lot more of these...these are the actually pretty ones, but there are tons of crazy looks with giant hideous geometric prints and slogans. the 1980s were an interesting fashion era to say the least. i'll show you guys the ugly ones another day!
