While Christmas shopping on a tight budget I discovered this hot little number at one my favorite stores, Urban Outfitters.
After Christmas it had gone on sale an additional 50% off making it $14.99. I had to get it with my last $50 on hand. Since making the phenomenal purchase I have worn it to the Mayoral Inauguration of Vincent Gray.

VFJ presents your Vintage Vixen this month Darcel Wynne
‘Solid Gold’ Dancer Darcel Wynne
If you grew up in the ’80s, chances are the glitzy-good pop song countdown show,”Solid Gold,” ruled your Saturday nights. The show was a novelty for music lovers. Funky as it wanted to be. From 1980 to 1988, the dancers performed slinky choreographed numbers to each of the top ten songs of the week–and principal dancer Darcel Wynn was their fearless leader.
Oh, the majesty of Darcel! For five seasons, this Pittsburgh native turned America out with her unparalleled unitardcollection, fearsome nails, and that glorious ’80’s weave (the style of which varied from ankle-length braids to a waterfall of pre-Jody Watley waves). Her look was major, but the dancing made her famous–you haven’t seen anything until you’ve witnessed Wynn writhing around on the floor in a gilded full-body catsuit to the Pointer Sisters’ “Slow Hand.”
Before dancing her way into America’s living rooms as “Solid Gold’s” principal dancer, Darcel Wynn appeared as a dancer in films like “Jesus Christ Superstar,” “Mame,” and “Xanadu.”
Darcel Wynn, you rock.
