Day 302/365: Ken Done meets the desert...

Vintage Sunski glasses, handmade necklace, Miss Shop skivvy from op shop, Ken Done shirt donated by Susan, vintage belt from op shop, Maggie Shepherd harem pants donated by Emily, Simon deWinter socks, Fluevog.

So when I think 'Harem Pants' I think three things. The first I think of is 1980s-style, the second thing that pops to mind is of course MC Hammer (help us all!), and the third thing is desert-fashion...

Now today I may well be hanging out in the Inner West of Sydney in these spectacular vintage 1980s Maggie Shepherd harem pants and Ken Done cotton shirt**, but check out where some of my Ken Done scarves have been on this What Ken Be Done year: to the Midras ruins in Israel!

*Lovely* Kirsten and her friend had a hoot hanging out at these tombs dating back from 300BC... And what did I think of when I saw these fantastic photos? Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, of course! Yep, it's a 1980s classic a-thon today!

** Special props to Emily and her Mum for donating in these vintage 1980s Australian designer Maggie Shepherd harem pants. And equal measure of *thanks* go to sister-in-law Susan for donating in the Ken Done shirt. This baby still had the tags on, people! xo

Today's outfit...like Birdmonkey says - individually the pieces are great, together though, definitely bleeding eyes/only you. The socks and shoes look too, mmm - kind of the Eastern European tourist meets Hawaii 5-O, in the Arabian desert somewhere. Am sure there is a market for that fashion concept somewhere in the world. Hats off to your gutsy efforts Jackie!
