So Wrong

[Top: thrifted; Pants; Francesca's; Loafers: Cole Haan; Necklaces: Joyo; Watch: Nixon; Ring: Aloha Sunday

Conventional wisdom indicates that a top with puffy sleeves and shoulder pads is just wrong. But my newfound love for thrifting and of elements of 80's and 90's fashion throws that idea out the window. I mixed this top with the more current baroque-style pants and my favorite geometric jewelry to give it a more modern edge. But as Heidi Klum told us in last weeks' Project Runway, going all the way 80's is just wrong. (Seriously, two of my favorite designers there created a strapless gold prom dress with the bottom 18 inches covered in ruffles. Shudder.)

  2. Love it! I'm a big fan of the brown sweater, black pants combo myself, and I like your twist with the baroque pants. I don't think the sweater screams 80s either - I don't think I would have guessed if you hadn't said anything.

  6. That sweater is an awesome find though! You can always take out the shoulder pads when you get tired of it. Btw, cute blog! Would you like to follow each other to keep in touch?
