Tricia of Bits & Bobbins showed off a snippet of two of her new fashion books, including Rare Bird of Fashion: The Irreverent Iris Apfel, a book that's also on my wishlist (probably because of Tricia, come to think of it). Anyway, the photos in Tricia's review only made me want the book that much more, and I especially loved the shot of Iris' fantastic plastic charm necklace from the 1980s (above). I recently dug out my own 80s charm necklace to wear for Halloween last year. I went dressed as a Harajuku girl and brought out all my pink, poufy, sparkly finest (I did win first prize in the costume competition, but mainly because only like three other people dressed up). Thanks to Iris, I'm now thinking of ways to wear the charm necklace in real life. But in the meantime, a few snaps of my costume, just 'cause I thought you'd enjoy them.
(You should know I totally wore the Zumreed headphones as well. Unfortunately, I was unable to score a bonnet anywhere.)
