Congrats on wearing the skirt you wore on your first date... even bigger congrats for saving it all these years... I have no idea what I was wearing on my hubby and I's first date lol.. probably something with big shoulder pads though hahaha! Ahh the late 80's!

More furniture pxts for @Sophie7713. This is one of two Walter Knoll gentlemen chairs I had made in ruby velvet. (They’re a lovely pink red colour in reality - overcast today so they look dull in the pxt.) They’re in my lounge room. Had one chair made & then 18months later I got the second one - had to save up ha! The dresser is an antique piece of Australiana made from several different timbers in a traditional English style with the daisy carved doors. It came from the house of a family who had been long time friends of my grandparents. My parents bought the house which included some contents. It was black - apparently boot polish was commonly used to polish furniture 100+yrs ago. The horror!

GORGEOUS! Just love Knoll pieces! How wonderful you have breathed new life into these iconic classics. I had the privilege to work along side florence Knoll Basset on several Miami projects, as a young designer. What a neat backstory and family heirloom treasures. Very cool chest. Your lounge looks like a truly inspiring place to hang out in!

The power suit and pin stripe certainly ruled then! I always felt so cool in my padded suit jackets with white t-shirt and dress Calvin Klein jeans with pressed creased legs! Florals are ready to explode this fall 2020 as fashion seeks a happier note and hopeful season.

Felt finally human again after trips to the salons this week for hair, nails and pedicure after 10 weeks. Tried on this new toile dress (with two belt styles) never worn, but purchased for several winter/spring charity events. So wonderful to learn the giving remotely actually exceeded that of the actual fund raising venues, like the food bank. Essential service to many who never conceived they'd be waiting in line for their next meal. Sobering, indeed.

Thanks doll! It felt so therapeutic to get dressed up, but a little sad, too. I wonder how much longer we'll remain just in our closets? Anything fun to model for us in yours? x o ;]

OMG @Sophie7713 we have the same shoes. I wore them heaps this last summer. And I loooove that dress. Gorgeous. I went to my beauty therapist for a pedi & facial this week too. So relaxing to be pampered & to catch up with my therapist who is very lovely.

Dynasty had a lot to answer for in the 80s. I remember having spare shoulder pads I could add to a jacket or dress to make the shoulders even bigger.

OMG yes! hahaha the ones with velcro on the top so they would stick in place for those outfits sadly lacking in sufficient shoulder padding hahaha!

Too funny that you and Sophie have the same shoes :D

I was looking for some large padded shoulder blazers to model, but they just weren't BIG enough 😂

Just put together the wardrobe for vacation (yes, last minute here like always) and I'm mad at myself because I can't find my two favorite Dynafit skirts. I put them #somewhere at the end of last summer and can't find them now. 🤬

Ok, the weather forecast isn't that great anyway and I would most likely be freezing my butt off in a short skirt so I guess it doesn't matter now... have to find them before summer though.

I also put my black Vibram ballerinas #somewhere. Meh.

Ebony and ivory twins! How cool is that. The black suede rendition is gorgeous, too - Especially with your porcelain flawless skin and deep burgundy wine polish. These sandels would look stunning with your black pleated skirt we all adore.

I went out and bought casual shirts and some tshirts as well. I tried on a size small and I can fit it! I haven't worn a small shirt since my mid 20's. 😊
