Day 120/365

"Cassette in my pocket and I'm gonna use it - stereo! ... I am a girl who demands that her love is amplified..."
Ken Done glasses, hand-made earrings, Ken Done Canteen scarf, anchor necklace from Santa Barbara, American Apparel bodysuit, Jane Davenport cardigan, Diesel denim skirt, op-shop bought boots. Featuring old-school Awai walkman from Super-Baba & Dziadzia in Melbourne.

Time to mark the end of the Sony Walkman. While reading today's post, I suggest you listen to this celebration of the 80s, walkmans, and general 'cheese'. Wired for Sound, as I'm wired to Ken Done!
And just to make sure we are in the mood, check out these vintage 80s photos sent in from super *star* Sally, Jan and Baby Max in 1984. Jan, I *love* your Ken Done style!
Below baby Max, now a little older, with a family friend wearing the infamous 'Down Under' polyfleece jumper. I don't know about you, but I can see a slight resemblance to Cliff Richard. Yep, it's all about seeing the patterns.

I bought you two Canteen scarves today in Fairfield Vinnies. And I bought what I thought was an imitation Done wallet for myself to use on our next outing (I am not worthy of Done methought). Then I jsut discovered his signature, so I Donen't think it is imitation afterall! http://twitpic.com/30vcen

The parrot necklace is just a little throw-in because it reminded me of one of your parrot motifs of previous showcasings.

David M: Hooray! Another finder of the Blessed Done :-) Go you good thing, Fairfield Vinnies AND Lovely David xo

I can't wait to see the photos when you send them in... all us fans are going to *squeal* at More Modern Male Done...

All: well we're all wired now in some way aren't we... I'm certainly wired for The Social Studio! Still on a *good* high from seeing all their *good* work!
