Lookbook: Acid Trip

by Heather
At first I said unh-hu, I'm not succumbing to the acid-wash/stone-wash 80's revival trend. Because, I actually wore it back in the day (albeit, I was in grade school). But the more I saw it, the more I wanted it. So I opted for a black wash, subdued version.

My taste in fashion has become more refined and true to myself as I've aged. In my late teens and early 20's I coveted EVERY fashion trend, but now I'm much more selective. I tend to buy staples that I know I'll wear for years to come. Accessories are my fashion-forward ammunition.

Are you gals into the '80s and '90s trends, if you remember when it was first on the scene?

Acid wash leggings by American Apparel; faux-leather jacket by Zara; silk tank by Alternative Apparel; booties by BCBG; Necklace by PrettyFine Jewelry; moonstone ring by PrettyFine Jewelry; vintage WMMS (Cleveland rock station) pin; zebra shades from Anthropologie; Bag by Tosca Blu.


  1. Love the look! I tend to be more, how much use can I get out of this item kind of gal. 80s or 90s looks? MMmm my friends would have to answer that one. LML would die laughing if I walk out the house with a tie dyed tee and leggings like I used to :)

    Have a wonderful day!



  2. You look so cool in those acid wash. You probably pull it off much better this time around! Haha! But then again you were such a cute kid.

    Great photos!

  3. I wish I had found your blog sooner! I love it and the name!

    I tried resisting the 80s friend. A friend of mine says you should only wear a fashion trend once.... but I've strayed. I'm getting some tie dyed denim leggings, I have soooo many white tops and the black jackets. And I try to think of myself as a non-fashion victim. oops.
