Like Totally…2009

September 30, 2009

Of course I love and miss the 80’s…cruising around with my babysitter in her new Ford Probe, Prince hits screaming out of my ghettoblaster, and working so hard on my new backward skating moves for Skate Way.   Ok, so I don’t miss my giant bangs and burning my head with my curling iron at all.  And I certainly don’t want to wear a tie-dye t-shirt with a hyper-color graphic on the front, but a lot of the 80’s style was done oh so right.

Thankfully we have amazing designers like Brigid Catiis to bring back the best of that decade.  And even better, you can come to Milk & Honey to get it!  Brigid Catiis launched in April 08′ and is blowing up (check out what The Daily Candy wrote about her recently).  Each collection is made from recycled, reclaimed or sustainable fabrics.  To create one-of-a-kind and limited-edition pieces, fabrics are hand-picked, individually cut and sewn, and made with love in Los Angeles.

The fall collection is 80’s done now.  The Side Tail Tank with leather trimmed front panel and Tie-Dye Tank made from super soft burn out jersey with a leather trimmed pocket are clearly show stoppers in this collection.  Keep up the totally awesome designs BC!

Many Americans associate September with the start of the NFL season. This may be true but more importantly, it’s the start of the SHOPPING season! Don’t blame me, we’re practically raised to associate this time of year with shopping. I feel like just yesterday my mom was taking me to the mall for my cool new back to school looks. So maybe I’ve been out of school longer than I would like to admit. Does that mean I don’t deserve a major overhaul in my closet so I can step out feeling like I can take on a new “year”?

I just want to wear my new boots, mini sweater dresses with tights, and leather jackets, but thanks to the “Santa Anna’s” it’s still too hot. How much longer does a girl have to wait to wear her grey suede over-the-knee boots? I’m certainly not going to risk passing out from overheating even if it is a great way to meet a fireman.

Instead, I grab my favorite ankle booties and a cute new outfit like this from Myne. The Apple Skirt and Ruby Tank will look absolutely fabulous and a surefire way to get asked to Homecoming. Oh wait, I meant “asked to Wine Steals“.

I see no other way to sign off from this post than with quoting Grease:

RIZZO Oh, God.
[sighs] Well, here we are again.
MARTY Yeah, but this time we’re seniors.
RIZZO And we’re going to rule the school!
