Do You Remember the Maine Mall in the 80s?
There is everything right about this stone-wash, cropped Jordache jean jacket! Lately the Maine Mall fashions have looked more like 1985 than 2017, and I love it! Some of my fave trends from the funnest decade ever are coming back, so I took a minute to daydream about what my Maine Mall experience used to be. Swatch Pop Watches, Z Cavaricci high-waisted jeans, Obsession and Jovan Musk, Body Glove bathing suits and enormous earrings.
I made a list of some of the iconic Maine Mall stores that shaped the neon, lace, rhinestone, geometric scene during the 1980s:
- Contempo Casuals
- Merry-Go-Round, my personal all-time favorite.
- Chess King
- Wilson's Leather, where I bought my first leather jacket that snapped diagonally- a la Michael Jackson.
- Porteous, where I bought my first jumpsuit. It was lavender, and I wore it with white pumps and bobby socks.
I'll throw in lunch at Woolworth's, The Dream Machine and York Steak House.
I also rocked this acid wash skirt in '87, and you can pick it up on Etsy
I wore a romper very similar to this one to the INXS/Go-Go's show at the Civic Center on Tuesday, July 10, 1984.
A must have for every 80s girl wardrobe was a collection of T-shirt rings. These were used to cinch up oversized, off the shoulder t-shirts. You can still buy them on Etsy. I'll take three!
