Taking it back to the old school

I came across an issue of Elle Decor from 1991 in the magazine rack of my gym the other day. And this ad is the best part of the entire magazine.


It features Christy and Linda rocking a matchy-matchiness unlike anything I’ve seen since.


I love this necklace. If I had a bracelet version, I would wear it every day. No really, I would.


I just can’t help but wonder how on earth Ms. Evangelista balanced that soccer ball while posing.


And that gold. Oh man, that gold.


Which brings me to the accessories my friend Sonja (now a graphic designer) used in fashion design school in 1991.


The tassels hang off the chain belt. The earrings must be at least six inches long.


And they were embellished with antique gold coin replicas. Because even embellishments needed embellishing.

These days, Sonja’s jewelry is much more subdued. And beautiful. Take look at her rings and earrings.

    The soccer ball must be glued on the shoe.

    I have to say that it’s kind of awesome that your gym has back issues of fashion mags in their rotation. Cool stuff.
