found this vintage Stanley Platos/Martin Ross number on Manhattan's Upper East Side at the Housing Works thrift store on 90th and 2nd Avenue. Always a fan of 80's designers, I was particularly excited to come across this little number. With it's vented sides, detachable lapel, and rounded shoulder pads, it was right up my alley.
