I keep getting a little patch of eczema by my nose, which is alternately scaly or red and angry looking.
It's bloody annoying and decidedly unglamourous.
Frigging hayfever and associated ickys season.
Just thought I'd share.
Anyway, I keep thinking today about how much I enjoyed watching Desperately Seeking Susan again the other night, after at least 20 years, and how much I enjoyed some of the clothing.
Most especially Susan's friend; she has the cutest magicians assistant costumes, but my fave outfit is when she's sitting on this couch, below, with Susan.
Those neon tights!
That Hawaiian patterned jacket!
The frock with the bow!
Made me realise that there was, outside of Gothdom, some fabulous 80's does retro/vintage stuff going on that probably went right over my head at the time!
Anyways, then I got to thinking how I loved Madonna at the time but loathed Cyndi lauper.
I thought she was a try hard, too contrived, a bit fake.
Well, I guess she was, but she was also rocking some great 50's prom looks all mixed up with that crazy ass makeup and tackarama jewellery!
I still don't like the music she was doing at the time, but I do like how she has evolved, musically and stylistically.
Frigging love this pic!
She looks gorgeous!
I'd happily nick those shoes/frock/cardi!
I think I quite like the woman, and I suspect she's a bundle of fun, which I imagine Madonna is not!
I feel quite inspired.
But the crappy (craptacular, craptastic) weather just won't play ball.
I have to wear cardigans and coats as we have a time travel back into Winter.
I'd make G watch Desperately Seeking Susan with me tonight, but I have to go and do yet more bloody vocals! The never ending recording!
And tomorrow night G and I have a date.
On moi today:
Frock-70's, with angel sleeves!
Long necklace-70's, opshopped in London 1989
PS:For those participating in the tote "swap", it appears to have gone missing!
C'est la vie, as they say!
