"Don't You - Forget about Me..."

Don't- Don't- Don't- Don't!
I love the 80's.  Like LOVE LOVE LOVE.  Love them so much that I wish I was born about 10 years earlier so I could have really experience them.  Not that I didn't love the 90's.  Wind Suits and JNCO jeans man... :)  But the 80's are true love for me.  I love the music (yes, I love it.  ALL of it.)  I really love the fashion.  Other than the crazy shoulder pads, everything else just gets me.  And of course the "Brat Pack" movies.  John Hughes was a genious. For real.  One of the movie channels at my mom's had like a 80's brat pack movie marathon going on this past weekend.  I watched "Pretty in Pink", "Weird Science," "St. Elmo's Fire," and of course "The Breakfast Club."  It is my all time favorite.  I can watch that movie over and over again and not get sick of it.  Judd Nelson is so ridiculously hot in that movie. It gets me every time. 
So apparently I was channeling Madonna and Molly Ringwald when I got ready to go meet up with some friends from out of town.

(Dress - Vintage 80's / Tights Target / Boots - Unlimted via Mom's Closet / Pearls via Mom's Jewelry Box)

These boots are beyond cool.  I absolutely love them.  I found them at the back of her boot closet and was like "OMG.  Mom?  Really?"  I was so proud.  I of course had to wear them out.  And they fit perfectly with my whole 80's theme. :)

So I will be showcasing my top secret project this Sunday.  I don't know if anyone else cares, but I AM super pumped.  I've been working hard on it all week.  I really hope everyone likes it.  And I want honest feedback.  If all goes well, I will be having my very first give away next week!  I'm kind of excited about it.  Hell, regardless of the response, I will for sure do a give away next week.  I will be out of town this weekend visiting my fav in Kalamazoo.  We are going to see "The Runnaways" and have a fantastic photo shoot.  Hopefully she will FINALLY put some pics up on Chictopia.com!  Hope everyone has a great weekend!
