80's Beaded Jacket..

Hello everyone. It is great to see all of you stop by for another fun filled thrifty day! I found this vintage 80's blazer at Goodwill last year after I had my son. It is now pretty big on me, but I really like the pattern on the jacket and the color..if I could take it in it would be perfect. I have found that I really like the vtg beaded 80's pieces..some of them are stunning..I can't believe all of the time that must have went into all of the beading done to some of the long dresses..not to mention the fact that they are super heavy to wear. I have quite a few vintage 80's beaded dresses that I can't part with..just because I love all of the detail in the beading. What do you love or not love about the 80's fashion? I love all of the bright fun crazy colors that they used, and some of the 80's grunge looks. I have to say tho..that I never got the shoulder pad thing..I can't stand them! Whenever I buy vintage 80's pieces I always cut out the shoulder pads!..and this piece was no exception..

Vintage 80's beaded jacket: $3.99 from Goodwill
Miley Cirus dress: $3.00

Have a great day everyone..see you tomorrow.

  7. Awh..super outfit...love'n the jacket with the sequins, beads, all. Thank you for posting with us on easy Tuesday! Great thrift!

  8. Oh my goodness, what a great jacket! I love 80s sequined pieces too but agree that shoulder pads are the worst. When they reared their little, stuffing-filled heads again a couple years ago I was worried they'd be back for sure. Luckily that seemed to just be a fringe trend.

    Also, I love your blog. It's always great to find fellow thrifters!
