Trend Spotting | Decadent GlamourTuesday, October 12, 2010
Growing up in the 80's, I can totally remember the time when EVERYONE was reeling over "Dynasty" and Joan Collins was the ultimate poster girl for fashion and luxury. Still in diapers and running around sporting Mama's pumps, even then I knew fabulous meant over-the-top opulence and nary a care in the world. Having just been over the 70's financial slump and economic crises, women were now a common fixture in the workplace and "power dressing" meant ditching the polyester for shoulder pads and piling on the bling.
Oh how I longed to be a Carrington (minus the catfights) and carve my niche in society by simply dressing to the nines to look like the perfect ten. Glamour is making a comeback ladies (and fellas)...time for the real 80's to emerge...So long Boy George!!!...Hello, Gorgeous!!!
