Day 331/365: I'm no hand model...

Ken Done glasses, Ken Done brooch made by Bec, vintage handmade 1980s skirt suit from op shop, Fluevogs, Ken Done tote (WKBD Collection), Ken Done coin purse lent by Sally.

Today I'm off to do some media training for my day job. In response I thought I should dress inspired by 1980s newsreader fashion. Oh, how I love puffed-shoulder jackets and magenta!

So as you will see below, I'm no hand model, but I think this blog may just be working in subtly 'selling' the *goodness* that is vintage 1980s Ken Done. Wonderful Sally has again lent today's item: this Harbour Bridge Ken Done coin purse. It comes from her own collection, and she writes, "Can I have the coin purse back please. You have planted the KD seed, and now I'm quite obsessed!' Hooray! And, speaking of which, can I possibly tempt you too? :-) xo

I have to agree with Sally, I have a thing for Done that is growing and growing every day. Jax, you are creating Done monsters out here! Loving the bright pastels!
