Day 52/365

Today is the 19th day of the 8th month. So I'm celebrating today as 1980's day!


Featured is Ken Done red bag**, matched with influential and amazing 1980s Sydney Designer's Studibaker Hawk red jacket. Look closely at my jacket pocket to spot my original Ghostbusters patch too (film made in 1984, naturally).


** This KD bag has a great story behind it. The day before I started this whole WKBD shebang I was in Enmore, Sydney. I was walking past an op-shop and felt the 'Pull of Done' (soon to become a technical shopping term!). I decided that if I found Done in that op-shop it was a sign this project would do *good* and I must do it (because I was very, very nervous, see?). I walk in the store, and straight away spot this mint-condition bag. Then I walk up to the store staff, and they tell me this bag costs $5 dollars. Five dollars! Now that was a good day… and the rest, it's becoming history!


Thank you for being part of this *good fashion for good* movement…

Stef: three words to change a life, John Fluevog Shoes.

TC: Hey, ta, but of course I'm always suitable for work!

In fact given what Anon has said... I too feel like I should have turned up today 1980s content to *loud loud loud*... but I do have many many more days to do that too. Note to self: Must keep up 1980s energy at cracking pace... Must!

Anon: Sizeable shoulder pads. Check. Keep a look out :-)
