Halloween Costume Idea #13: Madonna (Mostly 80s Madge)

I think the title says it all. I bring you, Madonna.

PS-I finally made it so you click on the pic to see the item. You're welcome.

Desperately Seeking Susan Madonna

She was all about the lace, crucifixes, and the color black, with a pop of color or animal print.

I love all of the looks, but I gotta say, I am completely digging the Desperately Seeking Susan version. So many trends that are hot right now were inspired by that look. Love her or hate her, Madonna is certainly a fashion icon. Kim Kardashion...not so much.

What is your favorite Madonna era? Or do you like the current yoga inspired vibes? Comment below.

And don't forget to enter the sweet giveaway over here. Ends on Sunday.

I always wanted to be like desperately seeking Madonna, fave scene when she's drying her armpits under the hand dryer.

Lived this in The east Village with my shop when Cindi lauper Played 2 blocks away and madonna and grunge patti smith all the rage , were hanging, drinking egg creams and shopping in my store SHAZZAM INC on the corner of St.marks and Second, also Trash n Vaudeville and Manic Panic.
hate to brag but I started the Black Spandex craze then! But That's it's own story!

Thanks for featuring my gloves on your lovely blog!

When I first watched Desperately Seeking Susan, I fell head over heels for the jacket with the pyramid embroidery... her whole look in the film is truly drool-worthy.
