Throwback Thursday

We’re back again people! Everyone’s favorite day of the week on Hi Tona…THROWBACK THURSSDAAAYYYY!

Go ahead, play the song, you know you want to.

Today’s Throwbackee is my good friend who will remain anonymous until I get her approval.

As you can see here on the right we have my friend in this fabulous foto from circa 1993. I’m a huge fan of the those little side curls and lets not get started on that Pendleton jacket and the turtleneck. All in all, she was styling and profiling in the early 90’s and in case you don’t realize it scroll back up and watch that video.

Now, my favorite thing about my friend’s style really is her hair. She has an ability to wear her hair short and really pull it off. And even though she has short hair she plays with clothing in a way that never comes across incredibly masculine even when she’s wearing menswear. I think it’s a unique ability to walk that line so closely and come off the wire always looking well put together and cohesive.

Here you see her in the rarely seen but oh-so-awesome short suit combo with delicate top and a tie. And in the following fotos a range of hair lengths, all above the shoulder, and outfits that range from some sort of vacation in the 60’s, to 50’s housewife, to a comfortable combination of mens blazer and a tulip edged shirt.

Here is a woman who has found a style that fits her and she’s comfortable with but it never means that her style is not progressing or evolving.

I think she said it best herself, “Still boldly taking pages out of men’s style books and making them her own.”

Enjoy your Thursday and take risks with your fashion, it’s only one day of trying something new, if it doesn’t work there is always tomorrow.

Today’s featured throwbackees are…(drumroll please)…

My Momma and her best friend LW.

This is a foto from when they went to go see Cameo. Yeah, you read that right and they got to hang out with them. Jealous much?

I’m pretty sure most of the stuff they’re wearing is back in style. I mean, how many ways can I want that white clutch? It’s awesome and I bet it was real leather.

See, this for sale right now. (Click the pic to go to the site)

Happy Thursday!
