80s Fashion Inspiration & Tips + Today:ArtJamz & Bloomingdale’s UNLEASH YOUR INNER ARTISTA Event
Remember bright colored shoe laces and slap bracelets?! Eliza (pictured below) is inventive by using neon shoe laces as a belt for her vintage inspired cutoff denim short. Get this look by pairing a bright neon oversized short with faded denim and retro style sneakers. PS: Her super cool retro Tory Burch bag is on my wish list!
This picture is of Eliza Dolittle at the InStyle’s “Dinner With A Designer: for Tory Burch. I featured this picture yesterday and it inspired me to write today’s post on 80s fashion.

ArtJamz & Bloomingdale’s UNLEASH YOUR INNER ARTISTA Event today!
I know this is a last minute announcement but if you have a free evening and you live in the DC, Washington’s Top Artista Challenge sounds like a ton of fun! Best of all 10% of the proceeds benefit BECKY’s FUND! The event is free, RSVP at http://washingtonstopartista.eventbrite.com/ if you would like to attend! I think this is an awesome opportunity to see the fashion and art scene merge with retail giants. Many of the department stores at Wisconsin Place have been holding all type of events for fashionistas and with wonderful results!
Make sure you cheer on the capitol fashionista ( a fellow DC blogger) as she competes tonight!!!
