From the past

Tell me this is NOT a coincidence. Two of my favorite looks from spring 09 (above) look like they have a cousin in the form of an 80s scalloped sequin top. After an intense final showdown, I won it on ebay the other night. Fashion fate?


I sort of see a bit of Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures in this top too. It's always great to find something vintage that reminds you of awesome things whenever you wear it. Hopefully I will look half as killer as this chick.

Amanda said...

sarah, it's vintage from ebay (no label) but stay steady on the hunt and another could pop up!

I was like "Wow, that reminds me a bit of Unknown Pleasures!" and then I scrolled down and saw you though the same, haha.
