80s corduroy tube dress, $34, www.sepiany.com- Frye harness boots – 70s beads – antique locket – Audrey 3.1 draped cardigan

for the whole shebang

 
 Oy. I just wrote a whole treatise on late 80s fashion only to have it devoured by the internet gods.(Something went wrong and suddenly deleted it all.) Maybe I’ll take a stab at recreating it when the sting wears off a little. 

Basically, the Christopher Walken classic, King of New York, is a must-see if your likes include one or all of the following: old school hip hop, Christopher Walken, New York, 80s/90s style. 

I was still rocking diapers during the 80s, but the clothes make it pretty clear that the Madonna decade took its partying very seriously. Gritty but glamorous, provocative yet playful, the clothes have an in-your-face boldness. 

When the balance of ridiculous and rockstar is just right, it’s genius. (Talking Heads being an epic example of such 80s perfection.)
