Normally I don’t post on Fridays but honestly…I just couldn’t keep this outfit a secret any longer! I’m the kind of person who watches a tv show and becomes obsessed with one article of clothing in it. Those of you who saw my post about Lindsay Bluth’s white booties (which, consequently, I’m also wearing in this post) already know this. When I watched Stranger Things I loved a LOT of the outfits, especially in season two, but there was ONE item that I truly couldn’t get enough of…Steve Harrington’s grey Member’s Only jacket.
I was (and am) OBSESSED. So I did what any normal person would do – I hopped on eBay and ordered a vintage Member’s Only jacket. I actually think it’s the *exact* same one, which is kinda cool (it looks a little darker in photos). I ordered the smallest size I could find since it’s a men’s jacket and 80s jackets tend to be oversized…and it fit! Also, now I totally get why these jackets were so popular, it’s so warm and comfy! Definitely a great purchase.
I knew I wanted to create a Steve Harrington-inspired outfit for this jacket’s blog debut, but I didn’t want it to look costumey. I grabbed my Levi’s Wedgie Icon Jeans (lol) for that mom jean look any 80s-inspired outfit NEEDS. Steve also wears a plain black tee, so I upgraded that to a lace up bodysuit, and also wore the only black belt I own. Steve’s white 80s sneakers just didn’t speak to me (also I don’t have any white tennis shoes and I wasn’t about to buy some just for this look) so I subbed in white booties! The look feels modern, and honestly most people wouldn’t recognize it as “Steve Harrington” but it made me feel really cool and really that’s all that matters.
Combining my love for television/media and fashion is quickly becoming one of my new favorite things! Would you guys be interested in seeing more tv-inspired looks? Let me know on Twitter!
