An 80s moment

My Mom introduced me to Olsen, a UK brand, via a few of her hand-me-downs: this neutral jacket, this stripes-and-florals dress, this silky tank and this button-down blouse. Their clothing is always well-made and well-cut. It's not uber-trendy, but the collections usually have a few standout pieces, like this jersey printed cardigan. In Canada, this line is sold at the Bay. (Note: This is not a paid promotion) 

I loved the 80s vibe of this sweater when I picked it up at a thrift store recently. I updated it with chunky jewellery, ripped and cuffed skinnies, a bold red lip and black pumps for pizza lunch and wine with some girlfriends.

  1. I absolutely love this! You took an 80s spin and made it modern. You look fabulous as always

  2. I remember Olsen from my days working at The Bay. It's excellent quality but I always thought of it as being a bit old for me... based on this amazing sweater, it seems like the brand may have aged with its customers, because I can imagine this was a very, very on-trend piece in the 80s! I love the way you styled it, I would never have guessed it was vintage because you've made it look so modern :)

  3. TOTALLY 80s and I LOVE it. Down to the layered necklaces and ripped jeans!


I genuinely enjoy reading everyone's comments. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts!
