Please explain a pointed-shoulder blazer.
I cannot possibly discuss pointy shoulder blazers without first sharing this amazing video of a local TV news anchor mocking two of the Kardashians wearing their matching versions of such:
Priceless. Their voices are intolerable.
Yeah, I don’t know. I am old enough to remember shoulder pads and 80s power suits and am thus old enough to be shocked that they ever made a comeback, but what the hell do I know? And when I think of 80s power suits, I obviously think of Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead.
Single mother of five goes on vacation, babysitter dies, teenage Christina Applegate (!) lies about age to get high-powered fashion industry job to support family. Amazing 80s power officewear ensues! Wonderful!! How does this movie only have 31% on Rotten Tomatoes? Oh right, because it’s actually horrible. I have seen it at least 10 times. And so have you. Because we taped it off of TV and watched that VHS cassette until no adjustment of the “tracking” knob could fix it.
Yes. OMG. My favorite part of DTMTBD is when Applegate is daydreaming about her burger (tacos?) truck boyfriend, and clown music plays. Love. Do you remember her herringbone braid? White-wine spritzers? Oh, and those ridiculous fashion uniforms that save the day?! I loved every work day outfit of hers and often think of them when putting together my work looks. Today I wore plastic hot pink shoes with my suit. Work.
