Like A Virgin was released a few years before I set foot in this world, but that doesn’t stop it from being one of my favorite albums of all time. The title song, “Material Girl”, “Into the Groove”, “Dress You Up”: all singles from the epic record.
My mother is always bringing up the eccentric and trendsetting style of Madonna, especially when she stepped onto the scene. No one was dressing like her, but that did not last long as everyone went out to buy white lace, tutus, name belts and stacks upon stacks of bracelets trying to imitate her fashion sense.
Patricia Field is always pushing the envelope in terms of products at her store and she is sending us all back to the early 80’s with her new Boy Toy Belt Buckle. Nothing in fashion is ever dead for too long and trends always come back, even stronger than they once were. When I was in high school, name belt buckles were all the rage and Patricia is clearly trying to bring them back. A really cute way to wear it for now, would be to use it to cinch your waist over a sweatshirt dress. Throw on some sky-high platform pumps, amazing hoop earrings and you’re ready to go.
Patricia Field’s Boy Toy Belt Buckle retails for $42. Visit www.patriciafield.com to purchase.
