Some more 80s from Hunza

Last week at the boot sale I found a piece from my favourite vintage 80s designer Hunza. As you know I found a neon green skirt last month by Hunza and I also have a couple of their vintage bodycon LBDs too.

As soon as I saw it on the rail, I grabbed it straight away-the material is so unmistakeable, its like a bubble texture and this skirt has a lace overlay to it:

I've dressed it down here, with a grey cami tee, black leather biker jacket and my new black and silver gladiator sandals from Matalan-which I've just noticed are in the sale now, definitely a bargain for £10!!

The skirt was a total bargain for £1-it's great to thrift something which is a vintage favourite.

What has been your favourite vintage or thrift find lately?

I recently purchased a pretty vintage lace dress at a vintage shop in Paris. I love your lace skirt, sandals and jacket, and that sweet smile of yours;-)

Sharon, love the entire outfit; it's a feminine take on rock and roll a la Joan Jett!
My most recent thrift purchased was yesterday; a Talbots silk and cotton purple skirt for $5.00 at my Salvation Army store in Ft Lauderdale.

This is such a good look - a little Joan Jett, a little bit Madonna in Desperately Seeking Susan.

I just love the clash of black leathe and lace, and of course the 80s vibe.

Great outfit! I found a 70's frock in Oxfam yesterday - peach with batwing sleeves, someone had shortened it but not hemmed, looks like I've got a bit of sewing to do! xxx

I love the leather jacket- Yummy !

Kavery said...

Lace and leather - of course look great together. Finding the skirt is made by your fave designer is the best part.

Wow, you must do your thrifting in some magical places :) You so often turn up great pieces, But of course it's also testament to your beady eye.

I haven't thrifted in a while actually. A few months ago I found a gorgeously well-fitting Bench top for a quid! Some places really don't know what they have, or they just want the turn over to be high so they don't mind charging a pittance - I'm not sure which it is. I know that price tends to depend heavily on area.. Anyway, I'm going off on a major tangent now so I'll wrap this up.

*love* that biker jacket, really really like how it works with such a feminine skirt. You do have lovely legs it has to be said!

Hiya Sharon,
I love Hunza & one of my absolute favourite frocks is by them...it's an outrageous 80s scrunch texture bodycon number with more YOWZA factor than you can shake a stick at ;)
You are welcome to pop along to the "boudoir" anytime, I really hope you will make it before I have to surrender the room, I'm sure you'd find a few things that you'd like to wear or perhaps just stock up on some more attire for your own market selling activities.
Take care luv,
Jennie
