Can anyone guess why this ended up coming home with me? Two words.
When I came across this dress for a buck I just had to take it home with me. Thinking how coveted these were in the 80s I was looking forward to some adjusting!
My goal is to take it as far away from “Laura Ashley” as possible. I don’t want it to politely whisper, “Hello, my name is Laura Ashley”, I want it to scream, “How you doin’, call me Lawr”.
And PS, as much as I LOVE Beetlejuice and old school Alec Baldwin, I’m totally alright with leaving Geena Davis’ Laura Ashley number in 1988
Remember the 80s?! Well, it’s back!!! I mean, who are we kidding with these amazing gold shoulders? I loved it and in this 80s chatter..

I’m going to take this dress for a little spin and in no time, it’ll be calling out for Mona!
Before I begin, let’s discuss how glorious it is the day after daylight savings where we gain an hour! It was like a holiday for me today. An extra hour of sleep?!?!

I’m also sensing a similarity in the shoulder pads, but mine are not going to last… Continue reading…
Before we start, I’m going to actually go there and say that this may be my crowning moment so far. You’ll have to let me know your thoughts though…
I mean, are you kidding me?! I look like I’m straight outta the cast of Dynasty just sans the big, teased hair and the blue eyeshadow.
