Sparkle! Glamour!

Oh the sparkle, glamour and drama of the 1980s and early 1990s!  It is ironic that the era of excess has made its comeback in a time when the economy has had such an enormous impact on the way people shop.  More may have been more back then, but now more is less.  I am thinking about Christophe Decarnin at Balmain.  There is more but just less of it.  There is definitely more leg.

So, that is the exact way you wear these super bling pieces.  Take our early 1990s Ungaro beaded leopard-print jacket and wear it with your tiniest skirt or dress.  Wear it with your tightest skinniest jeans.  Or wear it with your boyfriend jeans.  Just do not wear it with big hair or matching make-up.  Leave that to the ladies on the Dynasty reruns please.

Now to our jacket:  it is an extravaganza but fits like a cardigan.  It is really a work of art in the layout of the leopard print beading, the gold braid and its flecks of baby pink and baby blue sequins on the braid.  

Early 1990s Ombre de la Nuit Ungaro beaded jacket.  Fits a size 4/6.
