I cannot get enough of the ridiculous choices of the 80s.  Here I have taken a perfectly good Forever 21 turtleneck sweater dress, cut out the high neck (sometimes I have nonchalant panic attacks when these things are snuggling my neck; you might think I'm fine, but I'm going bonkers inside), then I cut and ripped down the center, tried it on and ripped some more until I was satisfied:

The simple gray undershirt with the cute white buttons was perfect for this outfit.  Keep lots of simple undershirts in your drawers--they go a long way.  I'm a huge fan of layering and accessorizing; you can still support local stores without having to spend a ton of money---you'll look different and spice up your old garb!

Isn’t this the best thing ever about the 80’s?! So basically you could do whatever you wanted as far as ripping your clothes to shreds and them wearing them like it was, you know, really killer fashion. What’s the root? Punk rock? If so, thank you Sex Pistols! But I kinda feel like people were ripping up their clothes and calling it cool even before 1979. Hippies wore rags and called it cool. It was the avant-garde way in which they did it in the 80’s that turned out to be so ultimately inspiring. It became sculptural—artistic—no longer about rebellion, but about the clothes. Ironic, minimalist, superficial 80s.
