New Wave, Incarnate

My cousin Sherri was the singer of a band called Get Wet. Was she not the epitome of new wave cool? She worked at the Betsey Johnson boutique and gave me my first cherry-print off the shoulder top. I wish I still had it, although I doubt it would fit me at this point. The grommeted patent snakeskin hip belts in acid neon still look as good as new, though. And the '80s are back, baby…like it or not!


  1. I LOVE her skirt! I severely covet these things. Oh and Betsy Johnson! I was in the one at KOP mall and there was a sign up from Betsy herself saying that she was willing to pay top dollar for any of her clothes from the eighties if one happened to own.
    That reminds me of that pink dress. Why didn't I get that?
    Your cousin is very talented but didn't you say you were in band also? Can we see you? :^)
    C'mon. It's only us...

  2. Let's hear it for Cousin Sherri! And Betsey Johnson!

    The sister of a guy I knew in high school was in a similar new wave band, the Flirts (as in "Don't Put Another Dime in the Jukebox"). Or maybe he just told me that because they were so bitchen. Who knows.
