Day 29/365: First Ken Done Nostalgia

Date Night. I reckon this Ken Done bag is one item many fashionista ladies would be happy to accessorise with today. That smiling koala portrait at the clasp is *genius, pure genius.*

Today I also showcase a vintage Maggie T jacket I found in an op-shop in Ashfield. Now that was a happy day, I can tell you. All this is because I'm off to Stephen Fry tonight - and I am so *excited* - well, yes, of course because of the show... but also... LOOK BELOW...
Pam - you have made my day! Check out these *FABULOUS* first photos we have of Ken Done showcased in the past! And with these photos, I'm doing no cropping: I *love* seeing the whole shot... for example, check out Pam's own t-shirt at the back (she's at the back, in the middle)... I reckon this is Ken Done too! Then there's also the bathers to the left of the photo, and the Inspector Gadget on the second little girl. These photo *scream* 1980s style... now I better go off to see Stephen and try and compose myself.

What Ken Be Done? said...

Ed... I know, how *ashamed* am I? So excited about Maggie, Stephen, Pam... that I forgot about Ken for a moment! Tsk, Tsk,... never again! :-)

And Mr Moony's - I love *good* spotters - classic comments! Funny how most of the 1980s/1990s sticky car gadgets have gone... How we'll miss those ugly Garfields slowly fading in the sunlight too...
