Day 2 MMM'19: Flashback in Pink

I do believe that trying on some items from the archives has turned me into an Austin Powers' prop.

~ yeah, baybee, yeah ~

I would not wear this combo in real life.  Trade out the shirt, for something longer, shorten the pants above the ankle, maybe wear the jacket with a voluminous dress or skirt.  With a little work here and there, I might manage something do-able for this decade.  We'll see.


~ I do feel silly ~

Anyway, the suit is made from pink corduroy, lined with matching polyester, of course, using McCalls 4391 pattern.  Made at least 25+ years ago.

    1. What, bohemiannie?! I am serious about my Ausin Powers moment. And thanks for stopping by too.

  2. The depth of your wardrobe! This certainly shows off your figure... and how far you've changed sartorially. Looove the shoes. You have a penchant for dusty pink? Or are we working through the wardrobe by colour ( see yesterday ;-)

    1. I luv pink, always have. I have been on a pursuit of pink lately and when I found this suit in the way-back machine, I was "oh yeah."

  3. That's epic - a huge departure from the Pao style we know and love you for - but a brilliant make and a perfect fit. x

    1. It's epic alright. I'm sure I'll feel similarly about what I wear now 25 years hence. Shudder the thought.

  4. Your workmanship and the fact it still fits you!!!! I couldn't say the same. I like the idea of seeing the pieces reworked and restyled. Impressive once again. xoxo

    1. Hey Jean, nice to see you again. If it wasn't for my exercise/diet regime over the last 2 years, this groovy pants suit would not have seen the light of day probably ever! I want to see what I can do, hopefully during MMM, but if not, sooner or later.

  5. Definitely a very different look for you! I would totally wear those pants just as they are if they fit me. I love a wide leg pant, and in corduroy, YOWZA.

    1. It's just that I have to wear a high heel, like those Docs and even then they scrape the ground. Hey, was I taller before?! Other than that I luv the color, etc.
