Fashion Through the Decades

Fashion has changed so much over the centuries, but not as much as it's changed between 1900 and 2000.  Clothes can show a few things about a person such as economic status, the type of music genre preferred, even what faith you may be.  

Today, African American fashion spanning seven decades is spotlighted.  Enjoy!

All Around the World


  Fashion is an international visual language.  Creativity in clothing can be found anywhere on the globe.  I hope you enjoy the designs I've posted today.  Glad the world has many different cultures with their own twist on fashion.   The gorgeous dresses here belong to ( in order) Norway, Canada (designed by a Native Canadian designer), Japan and the last dress is an African inspiration.

White Nights


Did you watch the SAG awards?  Most likely the fashion worn there is a high indication of what is currently vogue.  It looks as if white is a popular color to wear for an evening out.  If you get a chance, surf the net to see how many ladies, and at least one man, were wearing white Sunday evening.

White isn't just for weddings or communions anymore...

Couture Splendour for Little Ladies

I didn't know couture clothing was being made for children!   As I live I'm still learning.  One children couture designer is Mischka Aoki who resides in Australia.  Her work is luxurious with beautiful and time consuming details.    I'm not even going to tell you the price of one of these gorgeous dresses.  I hyperventilate every time I see the cost.  You can go to MischkaAoki.com to see for yourself.

Oh, and by the way,  a very belated Happy New Year!

Men Wear It Well

I have to repeat from my previous blog, aren't the men looking good these days.  I love the variety of clothing combinations men are wearing today.  I may have said in the past that men wore basic clothes (not my exact words, but similar to what I meant), but I'll have to take my words back!  Men are really expressing themselves through fashion.

Mature Men Fashioning





It's not only the young that have fashion sense.  Older men and women have it too, and we need to see more of the mature age group, in photos online and in magazines, showing their wonderful styles.  Mature men are featured today, and don't they look fine?

Dolls So Chic

If I were a girl now, I'd definately ask my parents to buy one, two, make that three  African American dolls for Christmas.  Where were they when I was young?  The little people today have so much variety when it comes to toys.  But, this blog isn't just about dolls of color, it's also about what they're wearing!  My, my, I'd be happy with one of these outfits in human size.... well, I won't say what size I am.
