I love 80's

This is the outfit I entered for an 80's thematic contest on LuisaViaRoma.
Being convinced that most of the participants will go for either a Madonna look (tutus, ruffles, shoulderless tops, and shredded clothing in general) or a Dirty Dancing one (with tights, leg warmers, etc.) , I decided to go for a more classy look, something late 70's -early 80's.
I didn't win though, but I like what I've put up for the picture, it is a look I would sport out on the streets of Bucharest with no second thought. Well, on second thought (:P:P:P), maybe I would change the shoes for a more comfortable but just as fashionable pair for walking :D:D:D.
The outfit is mostly based on hues of pink and red, with touches of black and a little light blue in the Bracelets. I really found this colour alignment stylish.

Shirt: H&M (from Shanghai)
Velvet Riding Pants: vintage Versace (handmedown from mum)
Belt: from dad
Shoes: Blu (from EVintage )
Earrings : handmedown from mum
Bangles: part from H&M, part from my bf's mum,part from a local shop (although it's not that obvious, I am wearing 12 matching bangles in the pic -and I could wear many many more:D)
Headdress: turban made out of a Moa scarf

p.s. excuse my being so frowned, but it was reaaaally sunny the day I took the pics :D:D
