A Different Accent - Dolly April 1984

Hope you enjoy this somewhat risqué feature from April 1984 Dolly as modelled by Sarah Nursey and photographed by Greg Barrett.  I am crazy for the look with the chains.. I'd love to try to do that makeup for myself, and the rag look with the checkered fabric is so so stunning!!!!

The Spy Who Loved Me - Dolly December 1984

Hope you enjoy this post from the end of 1984 as modelled by Annette... I'm not sure who the photographer of this feature was unfortunately, as it's strangely not credited.  I really like the second photo with the see through raincoat paired with checkers and stripes.  I've noticed that Jendi - the makers of that coat are actually still around making fashion accessories!

White Nights - Dolly November 1987

I am a HUGE fan of everything ballet and ballet influenced, and really adore this spread, as photographed by Andrew Southam.  The bubble skirt dress paired with over the knee socks is so quintessentially 1987 - and makes me think of Kylie Minogue on the Got To Be Certain single cover.

A Taste for the Tropics - Dolly July 1983

I love love love this fashion spread - pastel summertime in 1983 as photographed by Graham Shearer.  I love all the rags, fishnet socks and jelly shoes!

Hope you enjoy this latest post from the pages of Dolly '84 featuring black as the focal point.  Loving the East of Eden T-shirt and somewhat controversially the Hitler one!
