Shoes: New Look
I love the ’80s. It’s my favourite decade fashion-wise, music-wise, everything-wise. A couple of years ago my grandma was clearing out some stuff and gave me this gorgeous batwing top she had bought in the ’80s. It’s a perfect mix of gold glitter and semi-sheer black fabric, and there’s a vague hint of tiger-print too. I love the batwing sleeves, it’s just perfect! The label says it’s a size ‘small’ so I thought there was no way it would fit me, but surprisingly it does. It’s really short though, so I can only wear it with high-waisted things. I wish my mum and grandma had kept more of their clothes from decades past as it would save me lots of time and money having to hunt around for vintage stuff!
The skirt is from H&M and is one of my staple wardrobe pieces. It cost a grand total of £3.99 so of course I had to snap it up in about 4 different colours. I’ve had this skirt for nearly 2 years now and it’s still going strong, who said cheap meant bad quality?! As the top is quite baggy/oversized I think it looks good with a bodycon skirt and a big chunky belt to cinch in my waist. I think it would also look good with a maxi skirt too, but sadly I don’t own one yet. I recently bought my first maxi dress and I love it, a maxi skirt is definitely next on my list!
