Bet you didn’t see that coming. Truth is, I’m madly in love with vintage Moschino and the ideals that spawned it. I love clothes that are irreverent, verging on offensive. For some reason, I feel “bad-ass”, a.k.a. “hard”, in em’, maybe because it takes some courage to wear silly clothing. While I’m pleased to see that Moschino is recreating pieces from their archives for their Spring/Summer line, I would rather find the original at the thrift store, though it’s unlikely that I’ll ever find the teddy-bear headpiece (circa 1988/89) at one. Yet, I’ve been lucky enough to find the shorts I’m wearing in my first outfit, (I cut them into shorts), and the big peace sign earrings I’m wearing in the 2nd outfit. In addition, I’ve found both a shirt and a sweater that read “MOSCHINO” in huge letters.
