I’m still desperately seeking susan!

seeking susan



Obsessed! By the time Desperately Seeking Susan came out, I was already a huge Madonna fan. I absolutely loved the way she dressed. It was so different, so risky, and SO cool. My mom would NEVER let me leave the house looking like that. The truth is, I was never brave enough to do it either. So, I would dance around my room in lace leggings and cut-off shirts. I was “desperate” to get some of the pieces she had in the movie. I found a copy of the jacket, but could never find the awesome boots. UNTIL NOW! While I’m less obsessed with Madonna’s style, I’m not sure I can turn away from the Jimmy Choo interpretation of the boot. Truly, Madonna has never been as edgy and fresh as she was at the time Desperately Seeking Susan came out. She tries, lord knows she tries! Even now, I see pictures of her from that time, and I want to become her. It was ‘in your face’ individual style. I can’t help but be drawn to that.

    Didn't we all want to act like Madonna when we were kids?! Truly groundbreaking style.

    She makes me think of the 80s version of Carrie Bradshaw. So fashion forward and risky, but SO fabulous!

    I totally agree with you. At the time I was obsessed with her black bracelets, with the short jacket and the earrings she wore in Desperately Seeking Susan. I'd wear like her in that movie if I had the chance to find the exact pieces she was wearing.

    Those boots are fantastic! I was 8 1/2 when the movie came out so I never really got to dress up like Madonna (and believe me, I wasn't happy about that), and I'm not one to relive 80s trends, but those boots… I absolutely LOVE them.

    When I saw these boots I died. Then I died again when I saw the price. The reality is that I have been looking for a pair like hers from the movie ever since I was 11 years old (when it came out) and I had a life-sized poster of her on my wall. (And my mom DID let me dress like her: rubber bracelets, chain necklaces, net tank top, belly showing, frosted curls….) I will pray these go on sale!

    Want no more. 2010 is your year. Here it is, although perhaps even harder to come by: Isabel Marant's Otway boot
