Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This

I was going through some photo folders today and came across an old outfit fave...
It made me think of this amazing woman...
There is definitely more than a nod to Annie's androgynous style in these outfit pics...
I remember the very first time I watched the Eurythmics 'Sweet Dreams' video clip back in the 80s cause it was also the very first time my mum said to me that she thought I looked like Annie Lennox's twin, at the time I wasn't impressed cause I wanted to look like Madonna.
Now when she says it to me, I think "Yeah right, I wish!"
My affection for Madonna faded fast after my tweens but Annie still remains a firm favourite of mine, if I could choose any person to do a duette with it would be her...
she ROCKS!
I wonder if this outfit would get a 'thumbs up' or a 'thumbs down' from Annie?
Vintage needle-cord & faux-fur trim coat by Spinney, vintage floral panel & cord riding style pants by Ghost, vintage  psychedelic print sharp collar shirt, vintage whipcord belt by Gucci, funky tie by Strange London, hellraiser heels by Demonia, leather driving gloves (a pressie from my fabulous sister in Denmark) & vintage mega clutch bag by Dolcis 
Off to bedski now, it's really flipping late...
I will start adding some exciting new items to the shop when I get up ;) 
Lot's of love,
Jennie

That coat is divine! And yes I do see the resemblance. Back in the 80s I had the pleasure of meeting Annie and she was not only STUNNING, but had the most luminescent skin, gorgeous eyes, and a sincere smile. Sweet as sugar too. So be proud to be compared! XXX Jet

Annie had a great vibe going. I spotted her immediately when she emerged and never lost interest in her or her music.

You look ah-mazing; I'm sure Annie would approve. The coat is just gorg - and the pants match it perfectly! I still love listening to Lennox - her 80s stuff but also her "Peace" album from the 90s.
