Tip #1, Start Over


If you click on the link for Choo's Box, on my inspiration list, and look at her post for April 27th, you will see a list of dressing tips modeled by models that I guess I should know the names of, but I don't. Tip #1- Wear an oversized biker jacket with a body con. dress.. The model in the picture is wearing a jacket very similar to the one I'm wearing in this photo of me (taken in the early 90's). But somehow I got the look completely wrong. Is it because my hair color was blending into the background, causing me to look like Zippy the pinhead? Or maybe it was the thigh high's, complete with dotted lines just in case you feel like driving toy cars on them. It could not possibly have been the fact that the jacket was oversized, was it? A trivia note: This photo was taken at Rabbit Run, in New Hope, which is one and the same that Alfred Hitchcock wrote a short story about. Hmmmmm, maybe this outfit was doomed from the start.

On a side note:

JFK Jean: I can't believe you nailed, not only the decade, but the exact year of that shirt! Very impressive.

Jasmina: Cute hubby has been known to look a lot like Jesus. I may have to do a post on that, with pictures.

I think I like your outfit it is very Kim Gordon 90's with her brand rrrriot girl (I think that was the name). I am so looking for that perfect biker jacket.

You are very very seriously decking the decksters because no matter what you wear, your confidence is the right accessory!

You proochot, you!

LOL The hair is funny, a bit too dark for you I guess and the bicker jacket...just a couple sizes too big ...mmm
from the skirt down it looks kinda sexy...I guess cute hubby wasn't complaining, I can imagine...
many men would see this as a fantasy outfit for their woman !
